If you have lost several teeth, there are two solu2ons: separate crowns on dental implants, or a bridge aTached to several dental implants.

Replacing All Teeth With a Fixed Prosthesis

If you have lost all your teeth in one or both jaws, you can choose a permanently anchored dental implant bridge as a solution.

Replacing All Teeth With a Removable Prosthesis

If you have lost all your teeth in one or both jaws, a removable prosthesis that is connected to two or more dental implants can be a solution

IMPLANTS

ImplantsDental Implant treatment can be provided with sedation for nervous patients. Dental implants offer a permanent solution for your missing teeth. A dental implant is essentially a substitute for a natural root and commonly it is screw or cylinder shaped.
Each implant is placed into a socket carefully drilled at the precise location of the intended tooth. Often the implant can be placed at the same time as removal of the tooth all on the same day.
If an implant has a screw-thread on its outer surface it can be screwed into position and if it does not, it is usually tapped into place. The main aim during installation of any implant is to achieve immediate close contact with the surrounding bone. This creates an initial stability, which over time is steadily enhanced by further growth of bone into microscopic roughnesses on the implant surface.
In order to support replacement teeth, dental implants normally have some form of internal screw thread or post space that allows a variety of components to be fitted. Once fitted, these components provide the foundation for long-term support of crowns, bridges or dentures. Click here for illustrated information.
