Types of Implant

Implant Types

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that a periodontist places into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.

Dental implants are an ideal solution for most people who are missing one or more teeth.

Replacing a single tooth

  • With dental implants there is no need to grind down healthy adjacent teeth for support.
  • A single tooth replacement will look more natural and last longer than traditional methods of tooth replacement.
  • See Treatment Procedure

Replacing several teeth

  • Separate crowns supported by multiple dental implants.
  • A bridge attached to two or more dental implants.
  • See Treatment Procedure

Both options eliminate the need to grind down healthy adjacent teeth for support.

Replacing all of the teeth

  • A fixed full bridge attached to several dental implants.
  • A removable prosthesis, that stays securely in place is attached to two or more dental implants.

Either solution allows for replacement teeth that stay securely in place so you can eat and speak with confidence.
