Options in Dental Implants
Implants can be used to replace teeth in a way that mimics natural teeth. If you are a candidate for dental implants, you may have several options to choose from. Reviewing the best options for your dental health and needs can ensure the best outcomes.
Available options in dental implants include:
• Single dental implants
Single implants are used to replace individual missing teeth and can preserve the adjacent healthy teeth by keeping them in position and eliminating the need to alter them to support a bridge.
• Mini dental implants
Mini implants are a great option for those with inadequate bone structure and who cannot receive conventional implants. Mini implants are usually used with dentures.
• Full mouth dental implants
If all of the teeth in the jaw are lost, full mouth implants may be the best option. These are usually used with dentures.
You also have several options to choose from for restoring your implants, including:
• Porcelain crowns
Crowns used with individual implants create a natural-looking tooth that blends seamlessly with your smile and makes it easy to brush and floss your teeth.
• Dental bridges
Bridges used with multiple implants can be a good choice for someone who has lost a few teeth, but would like to avoid damaging teeth near the gap to support the bridge.
Dentures can restore a complete smile. Because these dentures are supported by implants, you will never have to worry about them shifting out of position or irritating your mouth.
