Dental Implants

Dental implants are a long-term alternative to bridges and other replacement options. They offer a variety of unique benefits that make them an attractive solution to replace lost teeth, and are the only tooth replacement solution that stimulates the jawbone and prevents loss of bone mass. Whether you’re missing one tooth or many, dental implants may be the ideal solution for you. Visit our Oviedo, FL practice for a consultation and to discover whether you’re a candidate.

How Implant Placement Works

There are multiple types of dental implants. Your trusted family dentist will let you know which of the following types is recommended for your missing teeth:

  • Root Implant: The root implant is the most popular type, and often most effective, category of dental implant. It’s also very strong and provides full dental function once healed. To place a root implant, Dr. Gregory Jann surgically implants a post into the jaw. The site is then left alone while the area heals and the implant post integrates itself into the jawbone. Once this process is successfully completed, Dr. Jann attaches a natural-looking crown to the top of the implant post.

  • Subperiosteal Implant: When the jawbone has receded so much that it can’t support an implant, a subperiosteal implant may be used. This type of implant is made from metal and is attached above the jawbone, just beneath the gum tissue. Small metal posts protrude from the metal implant frame to keep it in place.

  • Plate Form Implant: A plate form implant is longer and flatter than a root implant. Typically made from metal, plate form implants are usually placed with the jawbone isn’t wide enough to support a standard implant post.

Your family dentist will let you know what type of implant you qualify for after performing a thorough evaluation. In some cases, patients with insufficient bone mass can still receive root implants if they first receive one or more bone grafts.
