Single Tooth Dental Implants
Implants replace tooth roots in the mouth and provide a strong foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth. They can help to aid in the prevention of bone loss in the jaw.
An implant-supported bridge is a restorative solution for spaces where three or more adjacent teeth are missing. Two implants are typically used to support the porcelain bridge. The bridge provides a functional and aesthetic replacement for natural teeth.
For individuals who are missing many or all of their teeth, implant-supported dentures may be an alternative to traditional dentures. Eligibility for this solution is dependent upon a number of factors, with jaw bone density being one of the most significant determining factors.
This solution requires the placement of two or more implants. In order to replace a full arch denture, a minimum of four implants is generally recommended. Traditional dentures rely on an acrylic base that sits directly on the gums, held in place by a paste or adhesive. Using implants as supports for dentures allows for a smaller and more comfortable base and less shifting of the prosthesis during use.
Implants can support both full and partial dentures as well as both fixed and removable dentures. If a removable denture is selected, the denture will “snap” on to the implant rather than requiring the use of denture paste or adhesives.
