I’m trying to decide on the type of implant to get. Should I get a blade implant or a screw implant?

Sara,

Blade implants are often used when there is not enough jaw bone for a traditional dental implant. The look a little like an inverted pic ax. These type of implants have about a 50% success rate.

You should have been made aware of a bone grafting procedure that can be done to enable you to have the more stable implant procedure done. This builds up your bone, so that a full-sized implant can be placed, giving you a higher chance of success.
