What is a Single-Tooth Implant?
When you just have one missing tooth in your arch, you can experience issues with your speech, eating, and may feel embarrassed by the gap in your teeth.
An implant procedure will surgically place a small titanium rod into your jaw bone that will act as a permanent replacement root to your tooth in your gums. You will then have an acrylic or resin tooth attached to this implant for the most secure and natural fit of any denture solution.
Multiple Tooth Implants
If you are missing more than one tooth, but do not need or want a full arch of implants or dentures, you can take advantage of a multiple tooth implant called a “cantilever bridge”. This means that one implant will be secured to two teeth. However, if these teeth are not directly next to each other, you will need a second implant.
You may also want to ask your dentist about a regular implant supported bridge. This is a permanent denture solution to multiple missing teeth that uses dental implants and a dental “bridge”. Multiple teeth will be stuck together and then secured onto the dental implants.
