If you are thinking about getting dental implants, you should know about the different kinds. Click here for a guide on the types of dental implants.
Ready for your first set of dental implants? That’s great! Getting a set of implants shows that you care about your teeth and that you really want to get the most out of your dental health.
That being said, it can be a bit difficult to figure out which types of dental implants are best for you. With so many options to choose from, it’s no wonder that many people get confused along the way.
Luckily, there’s good news for you. This article goes in-depth about denture implants and will help you find the one that’s best for your fit, your needs, and your naturally beautiful smile. Keep reading to find out more.
The Types of Dental Implants for You: The Single Tooth Implant
Sometimes, all that you really need is a single tooth to be replaced. A single tooth implant would work best for you.
Most denture implants focus on replacing multiple teeth at once, sometimes even in a full row at a time. a single tooth implant doesn’t work in that way; rather, it takes care of only the single tooth that you need to have replaced.
If you have a rotten or a missing tooth that you need to take care of without messing with any of the others, then the single tooth replacement is the best thing for you.
Multiple Tooth Implants
Like the name suggests, multiple tooth implants are best when you have more than one tooth to take care of, particularly when those teeth are in a row together.
For most people, teeth naturally wear down with time, and even more so if you’ve been using tobacco or dealing with sweets a bit too much. It’s okay, though; multiple implants are every bit as easy to take care of as single ones.
Like single implants, the process involves the removal of any old teeth (if necessary) and creating a customized implant that will then be placed into the space of your old tooth.
They’re usually same-day dental implants as well, so the entire procedure is quick and easy.
This is a unique type of implant that operates in a very similar way to how braces work, and it’s best used when there’s a small tooth gap that you want to pull closed.
Just like how braces tighten and straighten teeth, an anchorage is a brace-like device that is placed on the front of the row of teeth. A small implant is inserted beside the root of a healthy tooth on one end, and a drill is placed along the gap.
As time passes, the drill is tightened bit by bit, pulling the teeth together until you successfully close the gap. The results will look so good that you won’t even remember there was ever a gap in the first place!
