A dental implant is a dental procedure in which a small titanium post, that is biocompatible with the jawbone, is implanted surgically into the jawbone.
An abutment (connecting element) is attached to the implant either at the same time of implant placement or after a period of healing. Then the dentist mounts replacement tooth on the implant.
Standard dental implants are placed in two stages:
Single Tooth Replacement: It involves replacement of a single missing tooth. A custom-made crown is then screwed onto the abutment so that it stays in place permanently.
Fixed Multiple Tooth Replacement: Multiple teeth are replaced in this process. Options for fixed multiple tooth replacement include:
|Dental Condition||Implant Solution|
|Full arch restoration (edentulous/on the verge of edentulism)||All on 4, All on 6, All on 8|
|Only a few teeth missing in a quadrant||Implants topped with a bridge between real teeth|
|One or two teeth missing||Single implant(s)|
Snap-on Dentures: These can have attachments that snap or clip the denture onto the implants. The biggest advantage of snap-on dentures is that it makes cleaning easier.
