What are Dental Implants?
Losing your adult teeth can be frustrating and cause you to lose confidence in your smile. Fortunately, dental implants are quite a common procedure that can help you replace your missing tooth. A dental implant requires a small surgical procedure to implant a titanium post into your jaw bone. After the implant has been placed and has fused into your jaw bone, a prosthetic tooth, also known as an abutment, will be installed on the implant. You can have a dental implant installed for just one tooth or for an entire set. A dental implant fits into the same space that your natural tooth was previously in and will not impact the surrounding teeth, as other replacement options sometimes do. Your dentist can assess your individual situation and help you determine the best course of action moving forward.
Types of Dental Implants We Can Replace
There are several different types of dental implants that your dentist may consider depending on your individual needs. Some patients may only need one tooth replaced while others are looking to replace all of their teeth. The options for dental implants include the following:
- Crown implants
- Bridge implants
- All-on-4 implants
- Full arch replacements
