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.

 

PATIENT REVIEWS

Due to the severity of my dental needs, my regular dentist referred me to Dr. Engen’s office. Being referred to a periodontal specialist is not something I would wish upon anyone, and it was difficult going to another dentist. However, from the minute I entered their office I was greeted by professional, friendly staff members who acknowledged me with a warm smile and a pleasant, cheerful welcome. The doctors and hygienists demonstrated a high level of expertise and technical competency by effectively communicating the options available to address my dental needs. Each and every staff member I encountered, from the receptionist, to the doctors are extremely dedicated to creating a long term relationship with each one of their patients, including taking the time to educate each patient about oral hygiene. The staff at your office works harmoniously, cooperatively and effectively as a team to make your time with them as productive as possible. I would highly recommend this office to anyone seeking resolution to any dental issues and be assured you will be pleasantly surprised with your time with them.

Dr. David has a wonderful chairside manner, just as his father did when I saw him many years ago. He made me feel very comfortable
