Single Implants / Implant Bridges

Missing teeth can be annoying and embarrassing. A single dental implant or an implant bridge can fully restore your smile.

When you lose a tooth as an adult, it won’t grow back like when you were a kid. What’s left behind is a gap in your smile that can be a hassle to deal with and spoil your otherwise perfect smile. Thankfully, with a dental implant, you can fill in that gap and keep your smile intact.

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant has several components that work together to simulate a natural tooth. The main part of the implant is a titanium post that is surgically inserted into your jawbone, just like the root of a tooth. On top of the implant, there is an abutment that connects the implant to a dental crown, a prosthetic tooth. Together, all of these components provide maximum stability, strength, and function. Once the implant is complete, it looks and feels so natural, that you won’t be able to tell it’s there.

What is an Implant Bridge?

If you’re missing a few teeth in a row, an implant bridge can fill in the gap left behind, providing a permanent solution that does not require compromising the surrounding healthy teeth. A typical dental bridge is supported by the two teeth on either side of the gap it is bridging. This means that those teeth, which are otherwise healthy, have to be prepared in order to accommodate the bridge. An implant bridge, on the other hand, is supported by dental implants inserted into your jaw. The result is a longer-lasting, stronger tooth replacement solution that promotes better oral health.
