Root form-dental implants: the titanium implant is inserted directly into the bone and is made or corrosion-resistant titanium. It is the most well-known and durable type of dental implant because of its more secure placing inside the actual bone. This is a durable type of dental implant and it will most often be the best choice, if your jawbone is strong enough to support it.
Sub-periosteal dental implants are not placed inside the bone but on top of the jawbone. This is recommended when the bone is not strong enough to support a titanium implant. The dentist will need to make a model of your jawbone to ensure that the fitting is perfect. This is a great alternative to the titanium one and also less invasive.
The place-form implant is recommended when the jaw is not strong enough or wide enough to support any other type of implant. There have flatter shape and are longer than the other types.
The ramus-frame dental implant is also recommended to those patients who have a weak or narrow jawbone. While the least invasive of all types, it is the also the least discrete. The frame implant is placed at the back of the mouth and a metal bar runs along the gum line. The dentures are placed on the metal bar.
