The Process of Dental Implants
Replacing missing teeth with dentures or bridge restorations has limitations. The results were limited in replicating the natural function and appearance of your lost teeth. With advancements in dental science, the concept of dental implants has evolved. Dental implants are natural-looking replacements for missing teeth that also provide the same function as your natural tooth roots. Dental implants have been used to anchor other types of restorations with greater success and patient satisfaction.
Dental implants are very simple, and patients are more often than not surprised at the ease with which the whole process takes place. Dental implants can be used to replace single missing teeth, multiple missing teeth, or even the whole arch.
- Immediate Implants
- 2 Stage Implants
- Surgical Guided Implants
Multiple Implants: When several teeth are missing, several implants are placed simultaneously, followed by the placement of crowns or bridges several months later.
The adjacent teeth from the space do not have to be reduced as in conventional bridgework, thus maintaining the integrity of these adjacent teeth for many years. The new crowns or bridges do not rely on the strength of the adjacent teeth.
