Types of Dental Implants

Your smile is not just about aesthetics; it affects your overall health, functionality, and confidence. Tooth loss can have a significant impact on individuals by causing aesthetic discomfort or functional issues while eating or speaking.

Restorative dentistry is crucial when you’ve lost one or more teeth due to decay or trauma. It encompasses a broad spectrum of procedures that aim at restoring complete functionality of the mouth whilst improving oral appearance. 

Dental implants are state-of-the-art dental technology offering robust solutions for those suffering from tooth loss. They mimic natural roots, providing reliable support for prosthetic crowns and enabling them to function just like real teeth – strong enough to bite into an apple!

What Are My Dental Implant Options?

Tooth loss affects patients differently. Whether you lose one tooth or an entire arch, your dentist can provide you with the right type of dental implant to restore function, appearance, and health to your smile.

The basic structure of an implant involves inserting a titanium post anchor into the jaw, which fuses with the bone there to provide a solid foundation. An abutment piece screws atop the anchor at the gumline. Then the custom-made dental prosthetic connects to the abutment.

Using this design, your dentist can recommend one or more of the following dental implant options:

  • Single dental implant: replaces one missing tooth using one anchor and a dental crown prosthetic.
  • Implant-supported dental bridge: replace three or more consecutive missing teeth using two implanted anchors that support a bridge prosthetic.
  • All-on-Four dental implant: replace a full arch of missing teeth with a denture prosthetic secured to four anchors in the jaw.

The implants can fill gaps in your smile, making it look full, straighter, and stunning. The strong prosthetics can withstand everyday chewing and biting to restore oral function. And since the anchor replaces missing tooth roots, you can preserve the health of your jaw, gums, and remaining teeth in the wake of tooth loss better than other tooth replacement options.
