An endosteal implant is made up of titanium and comes in the shape of a screw which is placed directly inside the alveolar bone or jawbone. This implant is ideally used to restore the smile of patients who have one or more missing teeth.
A denture is a set of artificial teeth that a patient gets after losing natural teeth. An implant supported denture rests in the mouth on top of implants. It fits into the implant with a particular mechanism like a clip, and each denture has two to four implants per arch.
Sometimes your dentist will tell you that you need a bone graft before you get the implant. A bone graft is a piece of bone inserted into your jaw bone to support it. It adds to the support and stability.
