TYPES OF DENTAL IMPLANTS
There are three different types of dental implants. The type of dental implant you will require will entirely depend on your individual patient case. Based on your circumstance we would recommend one of the following.
A single dental implant is embedded in the jaw bone. An abutment is fitted to the dental implant once the bone has healed and a single crown is attached.
Fixed Partial Denture (Bridge)
Multiple dental implants are embedded in the jaw bone. Abutments are fixed to the dental implant once the bone has healed and a bridge constructed of several fixed artificial teeth is attached.
A number of dental implants are embedded in the jaw bone. Abutments are fitted to all of the dental implants once the bone has healed and a full denture is then attached. The denture can be permanently fixed or removable.
