Dental implants are the closest you can get to healthy, natural teeth. They will allow you to confidently eat, smile, laugh, talk, play and enjoy all of your regular activities of everyday life without worrying about your teeth.
Dental implants can support a variety of dental restorations.
One implant and one crown replace a single tooth.
Multiple missing teeth can be replaced with multiple implants supporting fixed bridgework. For example, a three-unit bridge to replace three teeth in a row will be comprised of two implants and three crowns; or multiple implants can support an even greater number of false teeth. Usually four to eight implants are needed to replace a full arch (jaw) of teeth (10 or more crowns) using fixed bridgework.
Implants support a section of fixed bridgework, to which a removable section is attached.
Where two or more implants provide stabilization of a denture (set of removable false teeth). Over-dentures are now considered the standard of care for those who have lost all of their teeth in one or both jaws.
Temporary implants can serve as very stable anchor units for orthodontic devices to allow quicker and easier tooth movement.
Micro-mini implants can be used to support bridgework temporarily while permanent implants are healing so that at no time will a person be without teeth. - See more at: http://www.deardoctor.com/dental-implants/#sthash.FQNjbE0Y.dpuf
