What are the different types of implants?

Why do I need a scale and clean every 6 months

Not only can a missing tooth be embarrassing to you and affect your self-confidence, it also affects your ability to chew and consume food. The empty place left from the missing tooth can also cause the other teeth to shift and affect the look of your smile. You need all your teeth to maintain optimum oral health. The solution you may have been wishing for could be a dental implant. We can create a new tooth to be implanted made from durable titanium which can be matched to your existing teeth so it appears completely natural. Not only your new tooth will look great and give you confidence to proudly show of your smile, your new tooth will be strong enough to enjoy all the foods you want to enjoy. So in short,

How many types of implants can you have?

There are different types of issues one might face regarding missing tooth. The case could be of missing a single tooth, or multiple teeth, or it could be random ones missing from a row or a case of several missing neighbouring teeth. But the good news is, different types of implants are available now that can cater to different types of dental issues.

Single or multiple tooth implants

There is also a range of options where implants are used with a bridge or crown to replace one or more missing teeth. This provides a very robust permanent long-term solution to replace missing teeth.

If you are missing a single tooth, you can have a single tooth replacement. This process involves single implant and as the name suggests, it supports a single crown.

If you are missing more than one tooth randomly from the row, multiple dental implants can be done to support a permanent full mouth restoration.

If you are missing multiple teeth in a row, a dental implant bridge can help you with the issue.

Mini and Micro implants

Mini implants are only a few fractions of a millimetre smaller than regular implants. They use smaller bolts and take up less space. Micro implants, while not commonly used, are even smaller. They are used when the space between teeth is very small, but the patient would like a very secure tooth placed in there instead of a less stable bridge.

Implants securing the dentures

In the past, people had limited options to deal with their missing tooth issues, but none of the options were quite convenient in terms of providing full support to your facial structure or giving you the natural look. Sometimes the procedure even caused discomfort and pain too. Luckily now, you can have dental implants to secure your dentures, so you can throw away the dental adhesives.  Dental implant,

  • Re-establishes lost lip support and therefore minimizes the appearance of wrinkles
  • Preserves the remaining bone and maintains the integrity of the facial structure
  • Eliminates the need for dangerous adhesives
  • Eliminates the pain caused by ill-fitting dentures
  • Helps restore natural chewing capacity because of increased stability
  • Maintains mouth function, including the roof of the mouth, so foods can be fully tasted and enjoyed and you can feel hot and cold differences
  • Allows you to eat what you want, when you want, where you want
