If you have been investigating implants as a means of replacing your missing teeth, you have likely gathered up some important questions that you would like answered. We recognize, for instance, that patients often come to us for additional information regarding the amount of teeth replaceable with implants and what to make of implant-supported prosthetics like dentures. To better understand the ways dental implants may complete your smile, we encourage you to learn just a bit more about your options for exceptional clarification.
Replace One Tooth
Single tooth replacement is possible with dental implants. This means you can replace one tooth at a time by choosing a single implant post restored with a dental crown, which is a hollow, prosthetic tooth. You may replace one tooth, multiple teeth, or a full arch of teeth with this method.
Replace Multiple Teeth
Are you looking to replace two or more teeth with dental implants but you would rather avoid replacing every single tooth individually? If so, you may replace multiple teeth with an implant-supported bridge. This means you will receive one or two implants to support a bridge that can replace multiple teeth in a row.
Replace A Full Arch
Do you want the stability of dental implants and the comprehensive tooth replacement of a full denture all in one? Fortunately, you can accomplish this by choosing an implant-supported denture. In this case, we will place fewer implants than the amount of teeth missing in your arch. You may require as few as four implants to support a full denture. The denture will be crafted with small openings that will fit with exceptional stability over the implant posts.
