Dental implants are the best option available for replacing missing teeth because they are the only solution that replaces teeth both above and below the gum line. The result is a strong restoration that looks, feels, and functions like a natural tooth and prevents bone loss in the jaw. We offer a number of different dental implant procedures, from single tooth dental implants that replace one tooth to full implant-supported dentures.
Single Tooth Dental Implants
A single tooth dental implant is a restoration that includes an implant post or screw to replace the root of a missing tooth, a dental crown, and an abutment piece to connect the two. Unlike a traditional bridge, a single tooth dental implant does not require any support from adjacent teeth, making it a better option for your oral health.
Implant Supported Bridges
When three or more adjacent teeth are missing, an implant-supported bridge can be used to replace them. Two dental implants are used to replace the outermost missing teeth; these are then used to support a porcelain bridge.
Implant Supported Dentures
Implant-supported dentures are used when all or most of the teeth on an arch are missing. They can be full or partial; fixed or removable (also known as snap-in dentures). While traditional dentures require adhesives or pastes to hold them in place, implant-supported dentures are anchored by two or more dental implants, making them more stable and comfortable.
Full Arch with Only Four Implants
This procedure allows patients who are missing an entire upper or lower arch of teeth to replace them all using only four dental implants for support.
Mini Dental Implants (MDIs)
Mini dental implants, or MDIs, are a solution in some cases where full-size dental implants are not an option. We may recommend them in a small space or when there isn’t sufficient bone mass in the jaw to support a traditional dental implant. The process of getting MDIs can usually be completed in a single visit and the procedure is minimally invasive, usually only requiring local anesthetic and no sutures.
