Each missing tooth does not necessarily require an individual implant to replace it. Often a more stable and cost-effective approach is to place an implant at either end of the 'tooth gap' and bridge across the implants with a dental bridge.
If you need several teeth replaced, implant-supported bridges, implant supported dentures or all on 4 implants are your best option. Unlike some of the other options that have to rely on adjacent teeth, implant-supported bridges function independently and will help return you to a natural look and feel.
An implant supported bridge is a restorative solution for those who are missing three or more teeth in a row. The bridge replaces multiple adjacent missing teeth without the use of a denture. While a traditional bridge sacrifices healthy tooth structure in the adjacent natural teeth, an implant supported bridge is anchored to a dental implant at each end. This strong and stable restoration is both functional and highly aesthetic.
Traditional bridge treatments require dentists to file down the neighbouring healthy teeth, in order to attach the bridge in place. Dental implant technology alleviates the need to damage these healthy teeth, instead anchoring your bridge to implants, bonded with your jaw.
An implant supported dentures, or better known as an overdenture is a denture that is retained and supported by four or four dental implants. The denture and implants are connected by components known as attachments. For this treatment it is very important that you have a well-designed denture that fits well otherwise a new full denture is made to custom fit your mouth. To read more about this treatment visit our Overdentures page.
This procedure is a unique, game changing implant solution that allows patients who are missing all of their upper or lower teeth to replace a full arch of teeth using only 4 implants as “anchors”.
Multiple tooth implants are a very reliable way to replace missing multiple teeth and are good for getting rid of loose and uncomfortable partial dentures. Multiple implants can also be used where the existing natural teeth are not strong enough to support a bridge. Dental implants will leave you with a new smile that looks and feels natural.
