What are the types of dental implants

The dental implants are available in different sizes, types, and heights, but the two main categories are subdivided into Subperiosteal Implants and Endosteal implants.

What Are The Types Of Dental Implants? Why Are They Used?

It’s widespread for people who have lost their teeth to feel self-conscious to smile or even talk confidently. In most cases, these people also develop poor eating habits as they have difficulty chewing their food. Dental implants help to offer a complete restoration option for the missing or chipped tooth. These don’t work like dentures and present you with a wide-tooth replacement that helps to provide you with artificial roots that support the entire function and also helps to prevent jawbone loss. 

The top professionals in the cosmetic dental clinics in Mumbai work by replacing the missing tooth roots and offering different types of dental implants for different patients according to the issues they face. These implants provide people with the strength and stability required to carry out normal day-to-day activities like talking, chewing, and laughing without struggling. These implants also help stimulate and maintain the jawbone that helps prevent bone loss, and supports the facial features.

The Different Types Of Dental Implants

Each of the different dental implant treatments offers other coatings, connectors, and size options to choose from. There are various methods of placing the implants, but the types of implants are typically classified into two categories.


Endosseous implants, also commonly known as Endosteal implants, are the most common types of dental implants. These are used mainly by good dentists for implants as an alternative to the bridge or the removable dentures. These include the screw-type, also known as threaded, the types also known as smooth, and the balded types. Prosthodontists can help patients determine the correct type of implant that will work best on them. Endosteal implants are an incredibly safe, effective, and popular choice. 


The best dentists in the dental implant clinic begin the treatment by drilling into the jawbone to insert a titanium screw that works as an artificial root. Before they can finish the treatment, they wait for the soft tissues and the bones to heal around the core, which may take a few months.


These are known for their stability and natural-feeling results and are used by the top practitioners in the commercial dental clinics in Mumbai

These top practitioners start this dental implant treatment by screwing the implant into the jawbone, which requires good health and density. The doctors only go for subperiosteal implants if the patient has a narrow jawbone that is rigged naturally or narrows and worn down due to some diseases or trauma. In such cases, the jawbone cannot offer the necessary support for the endosteal implants. 

Subperiosteal Implants

In most cases, this form of permanent teeth fixing is not used in most clinics. Primarily they were used to hold dentures in place for patients with insufficient bone height. The subperiosteal implants were placed on the jawbone within the gum tissues, and the metal implants were post-exposed through the gums to hold the denture. 


The overall treatment for the subperiosteal implants is done in two appointments, and in most cases, the doctors offer a shorter treatment plan than the endosteal implants. 


These don’t offer the same level of stability as the endosteal implants as they dont go into the jawbone, but instead, they rest on the top of the bone and are held in place using soft tissues. These still offer more support than the dentures without implants, but they offer less stability than the complete endosteal implant system. 

The Dental Implants And Connectors

There are various options available for dental implant coatings in the market. Good dentists for dental implants can choose among the multiple options available to identify the proper treatment. 


Various types of coating types are available in the market. The actual implant will most likely be made from titanium, but the outer surfaces will most likely vary.

The most common types of coatings for dental implant treatment include grit-blasted or acid-etched and the roughened surfaces. Microgroove and plasma-sprayed titanium surfaces and plasma-sprayed titanium surfaces are also common types of coatings used by various dentists.

Conclusively there are broad categories of dental implant treatments available that include Subperiosteal Implants and Endosteal implants.
