Single Tooth Replacement
Even one missing tooth can have a huge impact on the smile. A single dental implant is the perfect solution to place in the open space in order to retain function, oral health, and proper dental alignment. Dental implants are permanent and worry-free, making them an ideal option for single tooth replacements.
A single tooth implant consists of a small screw that is placed into the jawbone and then completed with a dental crown. In most cases, patients can have the implant and a temporary crown replaced in a single day.
The benefits of dental implants for single tooth replacement include:
- No alteration to natural teeth
- Maintains jawbone volume
- Reduces the force on surrounding teeth
- Looks just like natural teeth
Fixed Implant Bridges
When patients are missing just a few natural teeth, fixed implant bridges may be a suitable option. The restoration consists of implants placed into the jawbone and fixed bridge that is made of artificial porcelain teeth.
Removable bridges require alteration to surrounding teeth for attachment and can be taken out for cleaning. Implant bridges are attached to the implant for a worry-free solution.
The benefits of fixed implant bridges include:
- Maintains the structure of teeth surrounding the gap
- Strong enough to withstand normal biting and chewing forces
- Preserves jawbone
- No fear of restoration becoming loose
- Less expensive than doing multiple single-tooth implants
Fixed Implant Dentures
Patients who are faced with complete tooth loss may turn to Fixed Implant Dentures or All on 4 Dental Implants. In the past, traditional dentures were the only option for patients and required either suction or dental adhesive to stay in place.
With Fixed Implants, we can place 4 or 6 implants into strategic places in the jawbone. These implants will fuse with the jawbone overtime to provide a strong foundation for the replacement teeth. Fixed temporary teeth will be attached to the implants during the healing process before the final artificial teeth are fabricated and attached.
The benefits of fixed implant dentures include:
- Full restoration of functionality (biting, chewing, speaking)
- Final restoration will feel like natural teeth
- No fear of embarrassment from false teeth moving out of place or falling out of the mouth
- Fully attached to the implants, they do not come out.
