Which Dental Implant Is Right For You?
Dental implants are an incredible, transformational treatment, helping give you back your smile (and your confidence). Whether you’ve one tooth missing or many, they’re a strong, reliable solution that offer the same aesthetics and practicality as your natural teeth. Read on to find out about the types of dental implant we offer here at our Pontefract dental practice, and which may be suitable for you.
1. Single missing tooth
Whether through age, lifestyle, accident or injury, many adults here in the UK have a tooth missing from their smiles. A single dental implant can help fill the gap and preserve the underlying bone, without affecting the other teeth.
As expected, it’s ideal for a single missing tooth, even if you have a few missing teeth in different locations.
2. Multiple missing teeth
Ideal for those with loose-feeling dentures, or those who may be avoiding certain foods due to their smiles. Dental implants for multiple missing teeth restore function without the discomfort or inconvenience of dentures, allowing you to smile, chew and eat again (and without worrying your teeth will wobble or fall out).
Some patients also required dental bridges. With an implant-supported bridge, either an implant is used for each missing tooth, or a false tooth is supported between two implants. Implant-supported bridges are the most stable system available with fantastic, natural-looking results.
3. All teeth missing
Implant-retained dentures are ideal in this situation. Using a press-stud style attachment, only a handful of dental implants are needed to be fitted in the mouth for the teeth to be clicked into place. Although this approach doesn’t always eliminate movement, it’s a sturdier option than dentures.
