Dental implant is best known for replacement of single missing tooth. However they can also be used to replace multiple missing teeth by placing multiple implants that are connected by bridges subsequently, referred to as fixed implant bridges. Replacing multiple teeth by fixed implant bridges is advantageous as it preserves the remaining bone thus maintaining facial form and functionality. In conventional bridges, adjacent teeth are reduced in size to provide support and accommodate bridge placed over it . However in fixed implant bridges, this isn’t the case thereby saving adjacent teeth.
It is undisputedly the best solution to replace your missing tooth. These are the titanium roots that replaces the natural root of your tooth that is responsible for the stability and strength of the tooth, over which crown or bridge is placed and helps you enjoy your meals with full satisfaction. These are titanium roots that are placed into the bone and provide support to prosthetic replacement of a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth.
They are placed in a single sitting after careful diagnosis and treatment planning. This is followed by replacement of missing tooth/ teeth two – six months later. Dental implants are better alternatives compared to conventional bridges due to the preservation of the remaining teeth and underlying bone. They also offer better functionality in comparison to bridges and feel like our natural teeth.
