Dental implants offer a long-term, fixed alternative to traditional dentures and bridges when it comes to replacing teeth. With various options such as single-tooth implants, dental implant bridges and implant-supported dentures, dental implants provide customizable restorations that mimic the look and function of natural teeth.
Single Tooth Implants
Single tooth implants are ideal for replacing a single missing tooth. An implant post is placed into the jawbone, creating a stable structure for the new artificial tooth. Once the implant fuses with the bone, a dental restoration, known as a dental crown, is placed over the post. This is the new “tooth” you see when you smile.
Dental Implant Bridges
This treatment is used when you have teeth missing in a row. The procedure involves placing two or more implant posts into the jawbone and attaching a bridge restoration to the implants. Implant-supported bridges offer superior stability and strength compared to traditional bridges, as they eliminate the need for adjacent teeth to support the restoration.
Implant-supported dentures are an excellent solution for individuals who are missing all or most of their teeth. Dental implants are strategically placed in the jawbone, and a custom-made denture is securely attached to the implants. This option provides exceptional stability, improved chewing ability and enhanced confidence in denture wearers.
Dental implants are a permanent and stable solution that feels and functions like natural teeth. Dental implants also help preserve your facial structure and jawbone by preventing bone loss. Additionally, they offer a more comfortable and secure alternative to removable dentures.
