Single Dental Implant
The most technologically advanced way to replace a single missing tooth is with a beautiful porcelain crown on top of a dental implant. The dental implant is a titanium cylinder that is placed in the jawbone. There the dental implant performs all the functions of the root of the natural tooth it has replaced. The dental implant is replicates a natural tooth. The restored dental implant tooth looks and performs just like a natural tooth.
Dental Implant Supported Bridge
When multiple teeth are missing a dental implant bridge can be used. Old fashioned bridges require damaging adjacent teeth and have multiple disadvantages. However, a dental implant bridge can be permanently and securely attached that does not damage adjacent teeth. The dental implant bridge will never get decay and never need a root canal.
Old fashioned bridges frequently get cavities that require cutting of the bridge and creating a larger more expensive bridge. Also, the anchor teeth of old fashioned bridges often need root canal treatment.
Dental Implant Full Denture
Old fashioned dentures slip, painful and uncomfortable. This is because old fashioned dentures merely rest on the gum tissue. Dental implants can eliminate all the problems of old fashioned dentures.
