Types of Dental Implants

Endo steal are the most common dental implants used for replacing single teeth. These implants are inserted directly into the jawbone, allowing them to provide the strongest and most reliable hold for your dental restorations. While endosteal dental implants offer distinct advantages, they also require sufficient jawbone for support. If you are lacking sufficient jawbone, a bone grafting procedure may be required before this type of implant can be placed.

If you are a good candidate for dental implants but not for endosteal, our Pittsburgh dentists may recommend a subperiosteal alternative. Subperiosteal dental implants are placed within the bone just below the gum tissue, allowing them to be used in cases where bone is not dense enough to support endosteal implants. Subperiosteal dental implants are commonly used for implant supported dentures, but can be used for single tooth restorations as well.
