About Dental Implants
A dental implant is a small, metal post that is inserted into jaw bone via a surgical procedure. Anywhere from one to eight of them can be placed on an arch to support a dental restoration. Implant posts come in a variety of sizes to accommodate the different locations along the jaw as well as the amount of bone that is available.
Dental implants will fuse with the surrounding bone making them extremely durable to support the custom made replacement teeth. The type of dental restoration you will have placed mostly depends on how many teeth you are missing.
- Dental Crowns are attached to a single dental implant if you are only missing one tooth
- Dental Bridges are used to replace several consecutive missing teeth. Two or more dental implants will be used to secure the bridge.
- Dentures can replace most or all of the teeth along the arch. Typically up to eight implants can be used per jaw. The more implants used to secure the dentures, the more stable it will be.
