Frequently asked questions

Dental implants are used when tooth loss has resulted in gaps appearing in between teeth and can be looked at as being replacement roots upon which, cosmetic teeth can be fixed. They are also important in that they underpin and support teeth either side of the gap.
The main types of dental implant are endosteal where the implant (looks like a small screw) is screwed into the jaw bone and the other is subperiosteal where the implants are on a framework that is placed onto the jaw under the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed upon the jaw below the gums whereas Endosteal implants are screwed directly into the jaw – it would be dependent upon the density of bone of your jaw.
