1. Implant Supported Bridges
An implant supported bridge provides a secure & permanent solution for patients who have lost multiple teeth. Standard dental bridge can prevent tooth-loss related problems and rely on adjacent teeth for support. The nominally healthy teeth need to be reshaped before the bridge is secured in place using dental cement. An implant supported bridge has several benefits. It do not requires healthy teeth to be ground down in order to replace a missing tooth.
2. Implant Supported Crowns
An implant-supported crown comprises of two parts: a dental implant and a dental crown. The dental implant acts as an artificial tooth root and replaces portion of the tooth below the gum line. The dental crown replaces the portion of the tooth above the gum line and closes the gap in your smile. Crowns made of porcelain or other tooth colored materials are almost indistinguishable from natural teeth and replaces the entire tooth, from the root to the chewing surface.
3. Implant Retained Dentures
Implant-retained dentures are held in position by dental implants and are the next step up from traditional dentures. They function better than conventional dentures and are more stable. Implant-retained dentures uses two to four dental implants to offer support and stabilization. Denture can still be removed for easy cleaning. The use of implants provides security and additional chewing force because it receives part of its support from the gums and more from actual bone.
If you have lost your adult teeth due to age, injury, tooth decay, or disease, implant-retained dentures can be a safe and effective choice for replacing your missing teeth. This type of denture looks and functions like natural, healthy teeth. They allow you to improve/r your smile and regain your ability to chew, eat and speak clearly. They also prevent teeth from shifting and help to preserve your appearance.
