Different types of Dental Implants

When we are talking about dental implants there are a lot of ways to clasify them

By Type

Mini Implants: This are the smallest type of dental implants they are commonly used to place snap on dentures and not recommended for single teeth pieces because of their reduced diammeter may not be strong enough to abosorb the regular impact of a bite. Although there are used sometimes on front and cannine teeths when space is minimal.

Short Implants: Bicon Short implants are smaller than a regular implant and are used on places where bonegrafting might not get the best results. Thanks to their smaller size is a good graftless implant option for single teeth. 

Regular Dental Implants: This type of implants are the best option because they have the perfect size and diammeter to safely absorb teeth constant impact. Some times bonegrafting is needed to achive a better quality of bone density. On healthy patients this is the most recommended dental implant oAll on 4 Implantsption.

All on 4 Implants: They are almost identical to regular implants the difference is they have special abutmets that allows them to be placed tilted inside the jawbone at a max. of 45° this type of dental implants are used to fix a full arch denture instead of single teeths

Zygomatic Implants: This are the longest type of dental implants and contrary to all the other types of implants this are placed on the zygoma bone (cheek) as a solution for patients who have an advanced deterioration of the upper jaw bone to get anyother dental implant fixed. This migh be aswell the last resort for edentoulus patients and is never used on bridges or single implants.

Dental Implants for Seniors

Having Dental Implants at an advanced age isn't a contradiction for the Implant Procedure although certain conditions that come with aging may contribute to the risk of a dental implant failure such as bone regeneration, bone density and deterioration of the bone 

Dental Implants Cancun

What type of Dental Implant is the best for you?

Single Tooth Dental Implants: Is placed to replace a missing tooth in order to help the other teeth preserver their natural potition and stop bone loss.

Implant Fixed Dental Bridge: An implant-supported bridge is needed when two or more teeth are missing in an area. It also may be used when your dentist is concerned that you might put too much pressure on individual implants that are not connected to each other. The implants will be placed next to natural teeth, the natural teeth and surrounding gums must be in good health. If you don’t have enough bone to place and support the dental implants, the supporting bone can be built up using bone augmentation or grafting before the actual implant procedure begins. The “all-on-four” technique is used when all teeth are missing in an arch either upper or lower.

Implant Fixed Dentures: This is a full arch solution for edentoulus patients and can be classified according to the missing alveolar bone density

High Alveolar Bone Density

Using straight regular implants or All-on-4 tilted implants to maximize stability

Bone Graft In Mexico

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that replaces missing bone with an artificial, synthetic, or natural substitute.

A successful bone graft allows your jaw bone to be strong enough to support your dental implant.

Most dental bone grafting procedures are done to restore your bone to its previous form following tooth loss, gum disease or trauma. Bone grafting may also be used to maintain bone structure after tooth extraction.

Restoring and maintaining facial bone structure is important for several reasons. Many dental procedures, such as dental implant placement, require that the bone be as close to its original dimension and position as possible for optimal results. Also, the jaw and other facial bones support the skin and muscle that are responsible for our outward cosmetic appearance. Without the support of the underlying bone, our faces can look prematurely aged.

The bone graft procedure

The surgeon will use a special bone grafting material, and graft it onto your jaw bone.

You will then have to wait, most likely several months, while the graft creates enough new, strong bone to make sure that the implant will be stable and secure.

It is possible if you only need a minor graft that the procedure might be able to be done at the same time as the implant surgery.
