While it’s best to work with your local Aspen Dental’s team of implant providers to find the right type for you, you can compare your options to see which may be best for you based on your current oral health.

Endosteal implants

  • Why they work: The most common type of dental implants, endosteal implants are always durable and can last a lifetime

  • Placement details: A small titanium post is placed your jaw to secure a crown (artificial tooth), implant bridge, snap-on denture or fixed full arch, so these are typically recommended for patients whose jaws are healthy and able to support a dental implant naturally

  • Requirements: May require a bone graft if the jaw is too thin or soft to support a dental implant

  • Recovery: Typically between 3-4 months to allow the jaw to heal in between steps

Zygomatic implants

  • Why they work: An advanced procedure, zygomatic implants may be used for implants placed in the upper jaw when there is severe bone loss

  • Placement details: These dental implants are placed into the cheek bone due to a minimal jaw bone viability

  • Requirements: No bone grafting is required for this implant solution

  • Recovery: The procedure can be completed in one day but can be more complicated than other dental implant options because of the placement location

Subperiosteal implants

  • Why they work: A less common solution for the lower jaw only, subperiosteal implants are used for patients who don’t have enough jawbone to support endosteal implants

  • Placement details: These dental implants are placed under the gum but above the jaw

  • Requirements: No bone grafting is required for this implant solution

  • Recovery: While less stable than endosteal implants, these implants have a quicker recovery time
