Check out this beautiful transformation with fixed zirconia prosthesis' on titanium implants at Parkway Prosthodontics in Ponte Vedra, FL!
Prosthodontists have a few types of dental implants they might use, but the titanium implant is the most common choice. This is because they are associated with optimal preservation of bone density and because these implants are more durable than subperiosteal implants.
Titanium dental implants are those that are surgically implanted directly into the patient’s jawbone. This allows the implant post to remain firmly anchored in place, as the bone fuses to it over time. Essentially, an titanium implant mimics the function of a natural tooth root. In contrast, subperiosteal implants are positioned above the jawbone, but underneath the gum tissue. As you might expect, subperiosteal implants are not nearly as durable or strong as titanium implants.
If you’re considering options for replacing your missing teeth, consider looking for a dental implant specialist who has extensive experience working with titanium implants like Dr. Kathryn Ryan!
