Types of dental implant procedures

Types of dental implant procedures

A dental implant is essentially a man-made tooth root. This implant is generally made out of titanium and displaced into the bone of the lower or upper arch. An abutment is then screwed into the dental implant and a porcelain crown is then made to fit over the abutment. This is a permanent and beautiful solution to missing teeth.

There are several different types of dental implants:
  • Single Tooth Implants
  • All-On-4 Dental Implants
  • All-On-6 Dental Implants

Single tooth dental implants are just as the name implies. A single implant is placed where the missing tooth wise and one crown is placed on top of the implant.

All-on-4 and All-on-6 dental implants are virtually the same and the only difference is the number of implants placed in the arch. There is however a difference in these type of implants versus the single tooth implant.

What can I expect after dental implant surgery?

What can I expect after dental implant surgery?

With the All-On-4 or All-On-6 type of implant, instead of a single tooth being afixed to the implant a hybrid denture is fashioned and placed on top of the implants. This hybrid denture looks like a full set of teeth and they function like a full set of teeth. When they are placed on top of the implants, they are then screwed down into the implant and become a permanent solution. This is unlike dentures that have to be removed and placed in a glass every night.

With dental implants you can taste your food better, chew your food better and have a beautiful and natural looking smile just as if you had your real teeth. You will also be able to speak better and chew your food properly.

Another reason dental implants are such an effective treatment option for missing teeth is that it helps prevent bone loss. This is not the case with dentures, bridges or partials. By not replacing your teeth with an implant it can result in loss of gum tissue, misaligned teeth, and misalignment of the facial bones. It can literally make you look older than you really are.

If you have missing teeth and you’ve been wondering about the options you have to replace those missing teeth, then give dental implants your consideration. You will find that dental implants is the most effective and most aesthetically pleasing way to replace missing teeth and give you a natural looking smile.

  • They are so compassionate. I usually hate going to the dentist, its always a scary thing for me. Anxiety sets in and I usually chicken out and not go. Glad I didn't this time. They are so patient and very thorough in explaining everything to you. I would definitely recommend them highly.
