Dental Implants have revolutionized the world of dentistry. In the event that you suffer from tooth loss due to injury, disease (decay) or a congenitally absent tooth, dental implants may offer a very viable solution. They serve as an alternative to bridgework or dentures to replace missing teeth.
A dental implant serves as the tooth’s root, an anchor in which we can fix ourselves. Moreover, this allows us to create support for a single tooth or framework that can support multiple teeth. Human bone will integrate into this titanium structure solidifying it and allowing us to create simple or complex rehabilitations.
Most patients with missing teeth are eligible for dental implants but there are some exceptions. A consultation with our doctors will help establish if you are a suitable candidate for this solution.
Single or multiple implants
Dental implants are a versatile solution. If you are missing one tooth, one implant will be sufficient to fill the gap and support a crown. However, if several adjacent teeth are absent, multiple strategically placed implants can support a permanent restoration. If you have lost all your teeth, implants can be strategically placed throughout the mouth to support a full denture (all-on-4).
