Single Tooth & Multiple Tooth Implants

Single Tooth Implant Replacement

If you are missing a single tooth, oftentimes this can be replaced by a single tooth implant. The implant is far more conservative because you don’t have to cut down the adjacent teeth as with a bridge, and you don’t have to wear a bulky removable partial denture.

 

Multiple Tooth Implant Replacement

If you are missing multiple teeth, these can often be replaced by multiple dental implants. The process is the same as individual implants except with multiple units. If there are multiple missing posterior (back) teeth the crowns may be splinted together so they are all acting as one solid unit reinforcing each other.

This is a more conservative process than bridges because the adjacent teeth don’t need to be cut down. Further, the longer the span the bridges need to reach only increases the stress and wear on the supporting teeth, leading to early bridge loss.

You can tell the minute you walk in that everyone enjoys what they do and that everyone likes each other. You also know there is no revolving door on staff. This tells me that the dentist values his staff and must treat them well so they don’t leave. It is a huge positive to always return to the same people who never forget who you are either. Your office is the BEST!

He was very friendly, and made me feel comfortable about what was going to happen and the steps we needed to take.
