Depending upon how many teeth need to be replaced, the location of the missing teeth, and the patient’s jawbone density, your dental implant options might include the following:
Are You Replacing A Single Tooth?
Recommended: Single Dental Implant
A dental implant is often used to replace a single missing tooth. It requires one post and one crown.
A single-tooth dental implant replaces your missing tooth from root to crown.
If you have one missing tooth or multiple that are not adjacent to each other, then a single-tooth dental implant may be your best option.
Are You Replacing Several Teeth?
Recommended: Implant-Supported Bridge
When you have multiple missing teeth adjacent to each other, you may find your best option is an implant-supported bridge. Typically, a bridge consists of two crowns on either side of your missing tooth gap, with an artificial tooth held by those crowns in between.
Now, instead of having the crowns attach to teeth, an implant-supported bridge has crowns that connect to dental implants.
The benefits of an implant-supported bridge are you can securely replace multiple missing teeth in a row – without the cost of replacing each tooth.
Are You Replacing All Your Teeth?
Recommended: Implant-Retained Denture
If you are missing most or all of your teeth in an arch (upper or lower), then an implant-retained denture may be your best option.
A denture is an artificial arch of teeth. It rests on your gum line and gives you the appearance of a full set of teeth. The problem with traditional dentures is they are removable, which means they can slip, slide, click, fall out, and make daily tasks uncomfortable like eating and talking.
You can permanently secure your denture with dental implants to fix this problem.
Benefits of Dental Implants:
Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. And because they are designed to fuse with bone, they become permanent.
Implants are very durable and will last many years. With good care, many implants last a lifetime.
