An implant is a titanium "root" which can be placed into the jawbone. A single tooth implant can be used to support a crown in cases where one missing or damaged tooth needs to be replaced.
Once the implants are integrated with your bone, they can be used to support multiple crowns, a bridge, or secure a complete denture. Multiple tooth dental implants may be used to eliminate partial plates and dentures.
Dental implants are now the standard of care when it comes to tooth replacement. Although this procedure may seem new to most patients it has been successfully used for over thirty years.
Full arch dentures are used when all the teeth are missing from either the upper or lower arches of your mouth.
Partial dentures are used when all some of the teeth are missing from either the upper or lower arches of your mouth.
A bridge is made up of two or more crowns and is attached using the teeth on either side of the gap. The anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth and hold the bridge in place. Dental bridges can use natural teeth or implants to be held in place.
