Have you lost one or more teeth and wish to replace them with a realistic alternative? Are you unable to use dentures? If so, single dental implants may be the ideal solution for you. The procedure involves placing an artificial tooth on an extension of a metal, screw like dental implant, which replaces the roots of your missing teeth.
If you’re missing several teeth and want to replace them with a realistic looking alternative, multiple bridge implants may be the suitable solution for you. The procedure involves placing a titanium implant into the jawbone, screwing an abutment onto the implant and then attaching a series of crowns on to create natural looking teeth.
Are you looking for a long-term and easier solution than traditional partial dentures? If so, retaining dentures may be the ideal option for you. Retaining dentures are typically used when a person doesn’t have any teeth in their jaw but still has enough bone to support metal dental implants.
There are two types of retaining dentures; bar-retained dentures and ball-retained dentures. Both procedures involve placing dental implants into your jawbone, placing abutments onto the implant heads and fitting a metal bar and framework for the dentures to be attached to.
