A single implant is an appliance designed to restore the function and appearance of a single missing tooth. These appliances are composed of an implant post, abutment, and dental crown.
- The implant post is first inserted into the jawbone through a small incision created in the gum tissue above the placement site.
- The tissue is then sutured closed to heal over a period of three to six months.
- Once the post has had proper time to bond with the surrounding bone tissue, we place the abutment. This is a connecting piece that holds the post and crown together.
- Finally, the custom-made crown is cemented into position onto the abutment. This connected all pieces together to form an entire tooth structure.
An implant-supported bridge is capable of replacing multiple missing teeth in a sequence. While being very similar to a traditional bridge, the difference with this appliance is that it is secured using implants rather than natural teeth. This eliminates the need to reshape or contour healthy teeth to attach the bridge; instead, the bridge is connected to two posts and abutments on either side of the gap.
Full Arch Dental Implants
Full arch dental implants are just as they sound; they are built to fill an entire arch of missing teeth. This prosthetic piece is custom-designed to fit the full arch of your top or bottom jaw; however, rather than sliding over the gums like dentures, the appliance is snapped on by dental implants.
Using between four or six dental implants, the appliance is securely fixed into place and is not removable by the patient. This makes the arch feel much more natural as it is able to function and appear as normal teeth without requiring additional care or maintenance.
