An Overview of Types of Implants and Techniques

Dental implants are the metal frames that acts as a root for a replacement tooth, and it is surgically inserted into the jawbone beneath the gums. By replacing missing tooth roots, teeth implants provide patients with the strength and stability required to enjoy all the foods without struggling to chew. Moreover, they also help to stimulate the jaw bone, prevent bone loss, and support facial structure.

The dental implants in Sydney come in different sizes, heights, and types. However, your dentist can help you choose which option is best for you based on your needs. The dental implant cost in Sydney may vary according to the type of implant you choose as well.

Types of implants

- Endosteal

These are the most commonly used type of implant. It is placed in the jawbone and is made of titanium and shaped like small screws.

- Subperiosteal

This type of implant is also placed under the gum but on, or above, the jawbone. It is mostly used in patients who do not have enough jawbone and cannot or not willing to undergo a bone augmentation procedure to rebuild it.

If your jawbone is not able to support dental implants, there are several techniques to rebuild bone, restore the natural jawline and provide a sturdy foundation to place the implants. These include:

- Bone augmentation

Bone augmentation procedure involves restoring bone when it is not able to support the cheap dental implants in Sydney. Researches show that using bone additives and growth factors to fortify the bone helps achieve the best results.

- Sinus lift

It is also called as sinus elevation and involves adding bone below the sinus where the natural bone has been deteriorated due to missing teeth.

- Ridge expansion

If your jaw is not wide enough to support dental implants, bone graft material is added to a small ridge, created on the top of your jaw.

Dental implant techniques

- Mini dental implants

Mini dental implants are narrower than most commonly used implants, and they are placed through less-invasive techniques and are primarily used to stabilise a lower denture.

- All-on-4

It is an alternative technique to replace an entire arch. Four implants are placed on the jawbone that avoids the need for bone grafting procedure. Special abutments are used so that a temporary set of replacement teeth can be placed on the same day. After healing, the permanent replacement teeth will be placed.

- Immediate load implants

It is also called same day implants. It is a good option for patients who have enough jawbones to support immediate placement and pressure on the new temporary tooth.
