What is an implant?
An implant is a prefabricated titanium root which is placed where there are no teeth. It replaces the natural tooth root.
An implant is a long lasting solution to missing teeth that can transform your smile into the one you always wanted. It formed by a prefabricated titanium root, which is placed where there are no teeth. It replaces the natural tooth root.
It is important to replace even single missing teeth as bigger problems can arise in future. Dental Implants vs dentures fixed bridges.
What happen if we don’t choose dental implant option?
Your teeth work together as partners, your other teeth can make in response to changes in the mouth including missing teeth. For example, your large molars in the back can tip forward into an implant space – when you wait too long to get a dental implant, there might not be adequate space for the new tooth. Also the opposing tooth without a partner, can over erupt out of your arch and cause issues with your bite. Your adjacent teeth begin to shift it’s a gradual process, but it starts immediately after you lose a tooth.
Single & Multiple Implant Treatments
1 Missing Tooth – 1 Implant
Unitary Dental Implant is the best choice for you, when you have lost one dental piece. If the tooth that you have lost is an Anterior Tooth (lncisiors & Canine Teeth) we will perform Tissue Graft in order to maintain and preserve the volume for better aesthetics.
2 Missing Teeth – 1 Implant
There are some cases when just one implant can be the best solution to replace two missing teeth
2 Missing Teeth – 2 Implants
It is a very simple procedure to replace one or two molar teeth with dental implants – far easier than an extraction, and far less uncomfortable. It is truly the only long term solution to losing a tooth.
3 Missing Teeth – 2 Implants
This is good treatment option when there is enough bone density as it allows the replacement of more than one teeth. Two long implants will be placed alongside a three teeth bridge.
3 Missing Teeth – 3 Implants
This option is recommended for patients with some bone density to avoid bone graft. Three short implants and a three teeth bridge will be placed.
4 Missing Teeth – 2 Implants
This is the best option when the patient has lost 4 anterior teeth (incisive).
4 Missing Teeth – 3 Implants
Unlike the anterior are, four missing teeth in the posterior region require three implants and four crowns to maximise chewing forces.
