Type of Dental Implants
Implant crowns are dental prosthetics that replace a missing tooth by attaching a crown to a dental implant post-surgically placed in the jawbone. They act as the root of the missing tooth and provide a natural-looking and functional replacement. They are designed to match the surrounding teeth’ colour and help restore the patient’s ability to chew and speak properly.
Implant Bridges are a popular solution for those missing multiple teeth. They use dental implants to anchor a bridge in place, making them more stable and long-lasting than traditional bridges. Typically consist of implant crowns, which act as anchors, and a pontic, the artificial tooth that fills the gap. They help restore the patient’s ability to eat, speak and smile confidently.
New Teeth On 4 Dental Implants
New Teeth on 4 Dental Implants, also known as all-on-four dental implants, is a solution for those missing most or all of their upper or lower teeth. It is a total arch replacement that uses only four dental implants to support an entire arch of new teeth.
This allows for more efficient use of implant posts, reducing the number of implants needed and the cost. They provide a stable, permanent, natural-looking replacement that allows the patient to eat, speak, and smile confidently.
