Single missing tooth
If you have only one missing tooth then a single-tooth implant is an ideal solution for your smile. It’s a great alternative to a bridge as it restores the gap without sacrificing any of your neighbouring healthy teeth.
How does the process work?
A small titanium post is positioned into the jaw to replace the missing tooth root. Once the implant has fused with the remaining bone tissue it should be strong enough to support the replacement crown. Your crown will be designed to match the surrounding teeth for an extremely natural result. With the proper care of an implant, patients can expect years of comfort and functionality.
Implant retained bridges can be used when more than one tooth is missing. They are very similar to a traditional dental bridges but are supported by implants instead of natural teeth. In doing so they have many advantages.
An implant-retained bridge helps provide additional strength to the jaw bone and also remains resistant to decay. Once fitted the bridge will feel more comfortable and secure than a removable partial denture. You’ ll be able to eat and drink food as normal and smile confidently with your new natural-looking restoration
