Types Of Dental Implants

Dental Crowns For Missing A Single Tooth

Benefits of an all-ceramic crown on dental implant:

If both your tooth and root are damaged then the best solution is a dental implant in conjunction with a ceramic crown. This allows the implant to look and function as if it was your natural tooth.

For this type of procedure a one-piece implant is used. All of the components are installed as a single unit. This means that you get an immediately functioning tooth with very minimal treatment and little to no pain.


This dental procedure usually takes 4 visits so that we can discuss, plan, build and install the new implant. After the last session your new tooth will be fully functioning and ready for use.

Fixed Bridge Dental Implants For Several Teeth Missing

Benefits with fixed bridge on dental implants:

In this case, when replacing three teeth in the far back of the mouth, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the only fixed alternative. Traditional dentures can't offer the same stability or function.

Having dental implants replacing your lost back teeth will give you new, unparalleled strength and stability that allows you to eat what you want. It will also preserve your jawbone and facial appearance.

The only fixed alternative in this situation - A stable, secure solution that lets you eat what you want - Preserves your facial appearance and prevents bone loss


After the initial examination, you can expect 4-5 additional visits until the final fixed bridge is permanently attached. It is normal to experience some minor bruising and swelling in the gum and soft tissue afterwards. Any discomfort is usually treated with an ordinary painkiller. You should expect to be able to work the next day.

Anchored Fixed Bridge If All Teeth Are Missing

Benefits of a fixed bridge on dental implants

Sometimes all the teeth are missing or they have deteriorated to such poor condition that they all must be replaced. In such instances the best solution would be a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants.

In the past getting dentures was the number one solution for people who had lost all their teeth but with the advent of dental implants that has all changed. It is now possible to replace a full jaw of teeth with dental implants and a fixed bridge. This is a permanent solution that is stable and also beautiful allowing you to show off your teeth once again.

These implants function just like normal teeth and allow you to eat whatever you want and they also prevent bone loss.

There used to be very little options for straightening teeth but within the last 15 years a new solution appeared called Invisalign. These problems can be mitigated by proper discipline but sometimes become a real issue with younger teen patients. This can lead to the treatment taking longer or your teeth not being ready to change to the next stage aligner.
