Your dentist will be able to tell you which of the three types of implants is right for you :
- Root form implant : This is the most common type of implant where the screw is shaped like the root of a tooth.
- Plate Form Implant : A plate form implant has a flat and long shape and is better suited for a narrow jawbone.
- Subperiosteal Implants : In some cases where there is not enough bone width or height for the root form or plate form implant, a subperiosteal implant may be prescribed. This type of implant is designed to sit on top of the bone, but under the gums.
