For one missing tooth, a three-part single implant is placed using a post, abutment and dental crown. A dental implant does not rely on surrounding teeth for support, allowing it to last longer and be more durable with proper upkeep and care. An implant is custom-made to fit your smile and function naturally. An implant can fill the gap in your teeth and give you back full function of your smile.
An implant-supported bridge uses implants to secure the dental crowns into place, replacing a section of teeth that are missing. Compared to traditional bridges, these implant-supported bridges can offer a more permanent solution since they don’t have to receive support from existing teeth. For a traditional bridge, once one of the supporting teeth has to be removed or treated, it can compromise the structure and durability of the existing bridge. Implant-supported bridges are a great choice for someone looking to replace a section of teeth that are missing.
For patients who are missing most or all of their teeth on the upper or lower jaw, implant-supported dentures can give you back your smile! Implant-supported dentures work by strategically placing four to six implants across the jawline. The entire set of teeth is then secured into place permanently with the help of the dental implants. This can be an alternative to removable dentures, providing a solution that doesn’t have to be removed and can function like natural teeth. Enjoy the foods you love and feel confident behind a beautiful smile with the help of an implant-supported denture.
