A dental implant is the best way to replace a single missing tooth. The actual implant is a slender titanium screw called a post that is inserted into your jawbone to replace the root of your missing tooth. This serves as a foundation upon which your dentist will place a sturdy, elegant porcelain crown, filling in the gap in your smile and improving your ability to bite and chew. With proper care, the implant itself can last a lifetime, while the porcelain crown will typically need to be replaced only once every decade or more.
If you’re missing several teeth in a row, dental implants can be used to support a bridge to fill in the gap. A bridge is made by fusing several crowns together and is then attached to one or more implants for greater stability and function.
Full Arch Dental Implants
Finally, if you’re missing most or all of your teeth, dental implants can give you a fresh new set. This process is sometimes called a full mouth reconstruction and refers to replacing all of the teeth on your upper or lower mandible, or arch. This is typically done by combining four or more implants to support a prosthetic bridge of teeth. Full arch dental implants can be completed through a single bridge or by combining removable dentures with the security of implants.
