Factors That Determine Type of Dental Implant Procedure I Can Get Treated With

Posted on 11/1/2023 by Weo Admin
Diagram of a single dental implantThe number of teeth that need to be replaced dictates the number of dental implants that will be required. People who are missing one tooth only need a single dental implant.

Implant-supported dentures are a good option for persons who are missing numerous teeth or who are unhappy with their current dentures. Full-mouth dental implants can permanently replace all of a patient's missing teeth in either the upper or lower jaw.

How Does Each Type of Dental Implant Help Regain a Smile?

Each dental implant surgery offers a permanent solution for replacing one or more lost teeth. The following are the specific benefits that can be achieved with each implant type.

Single Tooth Implants

When only one tooth is missing or needs to be replaced, a single dental implant can do the job. A single titanium dental implant is surgically implanted into the patient's jaw, providing a sturdy base for the replacement tooth. A crown fashioned to look like the patient's natural teeth is placed on top of the dental implant after it has fused with the jawbone.

Implant Supported Dentures

Dentures that are supported by two or more dental implants are called implant-supported dentures. Implant-supported dentures do not move around in the mouth like traditional dentures do and are far more comfortable.

Full Mouth Dental Implants

Dental implants for whole mouth restoration are made to replace all of a patient's teeth in one or both of their dental arches. When replacing an entire arch of teeth, this method involves placing four or more dental implants for support. Full-mouth dental implant procedures and all other dental implant choices protect a patient's face structure and aesthetics by preventing the loss of jawbone density.
