With the promising advancements in the field of dentistry, now we can get dental treatments quickly and efficiently than ever. One of such popular dental procedures is getting a missing tooth replaced with dental implants. It is not a complex and painful procedure anymore.
A dental implant, which acts as a root of your teeth, has three parts: the implant itself, the abutment, and the dental crown. Among this, the implant is surgically inserted into your jawbone. And this implant is attached to the dental crown to support the latter’s placement using an abutment.
Therefore, restoring these dental implants can be a complex procedure. Here we are listing down three types of implant restoration procedures:
Single implant restoration
This restoration procedure is used to replace a single missing tooth. Here the missing place is replaced with an implant that will act as an artificial root that will permanently support the new tooth.
Dental implant bridge
A dental implant bridge is a restoration option if you are missing two or three teeth in a row. At first, the implants are placed at the specific areas where teeth are missing. After the healing period, the dentist will place the bridge over it with a custom artificial but natural-looking tooth in the middle. This is also known as an implant-supported bridge since it is the implant that holds the bridge securely in its place.
Partial or full implant dentures
This type of dental implant restorations is placed when you are missing multiple teeth or have a severely damaged set of teeth. Here the dentist can place around four and eight implants depending on your requirements. These dentures will help to keep dentures in their position.
