Types of Dental Implants
Dental implants work well for a variety of applications. Singlet teeth, multiple teeth, and even full sets of teeth can be supported with dental implants. You don’t necessarily need a dental implant for each missing tooth – a few strategically placed dental implants can carry the weight of several new teeth. For patients unable to withstand traditional dental implant surgery,
Types of dental implants include:
Single Dental Implant Crowns
To replace one missing tooth, a dental implant is placed in the jawbone, and then Dr. Blair attaches a custom-made dental crown. A dental implant crown will look and function like a natural tooth – you may even forget which one was missing!
Dental Implant Bridge
If you have two or three missing teeth in a row, a dental implant bridge can provide a solution. The implant post is positioned in the optimal location to support multiple missing teeth. Dr. Blair the custom dental bridge, which is made from porcelain materials for a cosmetically appealing design. The dental implant bridge is preferable to a traditional dental bridge because the neighboring teeth are preserved and the jawbone remains healthy due to the supporting dental implants.
Dentures that slip and click can be secured with dental implants. The dental implants that support the implant dentures pose as tooth roots, anchoring the dentures and preventing additional bone loss. With implant dentures, patients can eat hard-to-chew foods and speak with renewed confidence.
