Dental implants are one of the most exciting breakthroughs to occur in modern dentistry! Thanks to improved materials, technology, and techniques, more people are candidates for implants than ever before, and the cost of implants is more affordable than it’s ever been!

Dental implants can be the perfect solution for a single missing tooth and multiple missing teeth. Implants are also a great alternative to dentures.

The primary types of dental implants are described here:

Single Tooth Implants
Singe tooth implants are used to replace a single missing tooth. A single tooth implant consists of one implant post and one crown on top of it, connected through a tiny abutment part. Single tooth implants are a great choice if you’ve lost a tooth (or teeth) to accident, injury, illness, gum disease, decay, or heredity (a permanent tooth never emerged). Whatever the case, opting for a dental implant instead of a traditional bridge is often the best choice.

Multiple Teeth Implants
Multiple missing teeth can be replaced using a combination of implants and a bridge. For example, if you’re missing multiple teeth in a row, fixed bridgework can be fabricated, which will be supported by implants on either end.

Full Mouth Restorations With Implants
As an alternative to dentures, you can choose to have implants and bridges placed permanently in your mouth. Typically it takes four to eight implants to support a full arch of teeth (upper or lower arch).

Dentures Supported By Implants
Implants can be placed to stabilize dentures and to help prevent bone loss (which can lead to changes in your smile and/or the contour of your face.
