single tooth implant restoration consists
of three parts. Namely, the implant post which
replaces the tooth root, the abutment which will
support the crown and the prosthetic crown itself.
The crown is either cemented onto the abutment
or held in place with a screw.
With today's developments, there are a variety
of implant systems, models and ranges available.
Each line catering to the individualized needs
A single tooth implant with crown is one of the
best permanent restorations. This solution both
looks and functions just like a natural tooth.
teeth are missing in different parts of the mouth,
tooth implants are good replacement restorations.
If multiple teeth are missing within the same
region, several missing teeth can sometimes be
replaced with fewer implants because dental implants
are stronger than the natural tooth roots. This
solution includes having implant fixed bridges
fixed bridge is very much like a conventional
bridge except the support is actually over implants
rather than natural teeth. The implants themselves
act as man-made roots. A great advantage is that
this is that it is self-supporting unlike conventional
tooth-supported bridges that puts a heavier load
on the remaining teeth.
When all teeth are missing
or in a condition that all teeth need to be replaced,
there are two basically types of full arch implant
bridges anchored to dental implants
Fixed Bridges anchored to dental implants.
With today's technologies, it is possible to replace
a full jaw with dental implants and a fixed bridge
that results in a permanent, stable and high esthetic
solution similiar to having a new set of teeth
Implant Supported Dentures. Implants
allow you to wear full dentures (overdentures)
and partial dentures without worrying that they
will slip or fall out. Having implants to support
these dentures also means that the base of the
denture can be made much smaller and more comfortable.
For overdentures, implants with screws placed
in the jaw will serve as attachments for a metal
bar, which will help support a removable denture.
