What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a titanium restoration that is used to act as a tooth root replacement. It appears as a tiny post surgically placed in the jaw and covered with various restorations, including complete dentures and porcelain crowns. The dental implant often lasts a lifetime, making it a popular choice for patients seeking long-term smile repair.
How are dental implants used?
There are various ways in which a dentist may utilize a dental implant.
Single tooth replacement – a dental implant can be used when a single tooth has been lost, being placed where the tooth root previously was, and covering the abutment with a dental crown.
Multiple tooth replacement – dental implants might also be utilized as an anchor for one or both sides of a dental bridge, which requires adjacent teeth for support. Dental bridges are made with porcelain material to look as natural as possible once restored.
Full mouth dental implants – also known as all-on-4 implants, full mouth dental implants are used to replace the entire smile. Typically 4-6 implants are placed along the dental arch and are attached to a fixed denture for optimum stability and function.
