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.

I would highly recommend Dr. Engen and his office staff to anyone whose child was apprehensive about having braces. Other than the high level of professionalism, I appreciate the down-play of cutsie-pie gimmicks for kids. He thoroughly explained everything to us right from the start.

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