Types of Dental Implants
|•||Metal Free Dental Implant: Standard dental implants are made using titanium. Titanium is used in surgical bone repair throughout the human skeleton; this is because it is lightweight, biocompatible and very strong. Most patients will find that titanium is a great option. Some patients have sensitivities to metals, for these patients we offer a zirconium implant option. Zirconia is considered metal free, though it does contain metal properties, patients with metal allergies find zirconia to be much more biologically compatible.
|•||Mini Implants: Mini implants are ideal for patients who require an even less invasive procedure. Standard dental implants measure between 3.4 to 5.8 mm wide, where mini implants are 1.8 to 3.3 mm in diameter and 10 to 15 mm long. For many patients, mini implants can be placed in just one visit using local anesthesia and without any sutures.
|•||Removable Overdenture: Patients with dentures can choose to have their denture device permanently placed with implants or choose to have their denture be able to snap on and off using a removable overdenture. Being able to place and remove your denture may be ideal for patients who are more medically sensitive or would find it beneficial to remove their denture for cleaning.|
