If you have some or all of your teeth missing, bridges, dentures and flexible dentures are not the only solution, thanks to advances in modern dentistry. Dental implants are artificial titanium roots that are placed in the jaw so that crowns, bridges and dentures can be fixed onto them.
Implants offer a clinically proven and safe solution to getting back a great smile and being able to bite and chew with confidence. When you lose your natural teeth, your jaw bone and surrounding tissues start to resorb or disappear over time. When implants are placed in the jaw, it stimulates the remaining bone to grow and mesh around the metal, along with tiny blood vessels. More importantly, implants help restore function so you can eat, chew and bite without your dentures falling out or having to adopt a soft food diet for the rest of your life.
Implants for single tooth spaces
If you have just one tooth missing or a tooth that is broken or decayed an implant can be used to fill this space. Occasionally, it may be possible to extract the existing tooth and place the implant and crown on the same visit
Implants for multiple teeth spaces
If you have multiple teeth missing, dental implants can be strategically placed to restore these spaces with bridges on top of the dental implants.
Implants for full jaws
If you have all your teeth missing, implants can be used to provide various solutions. At Smiledent, we provide “Teeth in a day” using All on 4 or All on X concepts.
