Mini Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good general oral health who have lost one or more teeth to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. With a dental implant you can chew normally, smile with confidence, and care for your mouth and teeth just the way you always have.
Multiple Dental Tooth Implants
As the name suggests, this kind of procedure is done in the case of several gaps in the mouth. In case of collective missing gaps, dental tooth implants with a bridge can be done. An implant bridge will consist of the crowns on dental tooth implants as well as, pontic crowns.
In case of missing gaps at various locations, then separate single dental tooth implants with dental crown or a combination of dental tooth implants with dental crown and dental bridges may be done in replacing missing gaps.
Implant Supported Dentures
As the name suggests, an implant-supported denture is an over denture supported and attached to implants. For all those who don’t know, a regular denture rests on the gums, and is not supported by implants.
An implant-supported denture is typically used when the patient lacks teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw to support implants. An implant-supported denture has special attachments that hold onto attachments on the implants.
They are usually are constructed for the lower jaw because regular dentures tend to be less stable there. Usually, a regular denture made to fit an upper jaw is quite stable on its own and doesn't need the extra support offered by implants. However, the patient can have an implant-supported denture in either the upper or lower jaw
