There are many ways missing teeth can be replaced by implants. Dentists can replace one tooth, multiple teeth,all teeth permanently and even insert implants to support removable dentures.
If a patient has one tooth missing, it can be replaced by a single implant that would be topped with a crown specifically designed to look like a real tooth. Single tooth implants have the highest success rate and prove to be the best investment for a long-term single missing tooth solution. An implant looks and feels like a real tooth but will never decay!
If a patient has multiple teeth missing, a three bridge unit is the go-to replacement solution and the inserted crowns act as one supported bridge. If you are missing three or more teeth in a row, two implants can be placed and a crown would be inserted in between. Miraculously enough, nowadays there is even an implant solution that can replace all of a patient's teeth permanently. Dental implant replacement teeth won't slip and will last a lifetime.
Implants can support removable dentures and make them more comfortable in the mouth. Regular dentures rest on the gums and put pressure on the jaw bone, which can be painful and increase the time of bone loss.This implant prevents dentures from slipping and preserves the bones of the jaw.
