Multiple Teeth Dental Implants
One of the biggest advantages dental implants have is that they are extremely versatile. They can easily replace a single tooth, and a few strategically placed posts can even support multiple replacement teeth. There are two ways they can do this:
- Implant-Retained Bridge: This can be used to restore a row of consecutive missing teeth. It works by placing two implant-retained crowns on either side of the gap in your smile and connecting them with prosthetic teeth. Compared to traditional bridges, they last longer, look better, and don’t require healthy teeth to be filed down to hold the supporting crowns.
- Implant-Retained Partial Denture: A partial denture can replace teeth located throughout the mouth. Traditional partial dentures are held in place using small metal clasps, but with this restoration, those are replaced by secure dental implants. They provide a much stronger hold as well as give the jaw the essential support it needs to remain healthy.
