Options for Placing Dental Implants

Looking for some information on placing dental implants? If you are missing teeth and are interested in getting one or more dental implants to replace your missing teeth, then you are choosing a permanent tooth replacement option. Implants are one of the more popular tooth replacement options people are choosing nowadays. This is because an implant is able to look and act just like a natural tooth.

Placing dental implants into your mouth requires a surgical process to be performed. This makes it a good idea for you to understand how the surgical process works. The more you understand about placing implants in your mouth, the higher chances of experiencing implant success.

Implant requirements

Because getting implants place in one’s mouth requires surgery to be performed, they must meet certain criteria in order to qualify for this type of dental surgery. It is important that they be in good overall health, which is a requirement for most surgical procedures. They must also have healthy gums and enough bone support. This is so that any and all of the implants are able to properly fuse to the jawbone. A commitment to properly taking care of their oral health from now on is also required as taking care of implants requires the same care as taking care of one’s natural teeth.

Dental implants options

There are placement arrangements that a dentist will use in order to install and accordingly place a dental implant into a patient’s mouth. The following is a list of three options for placing dental implants.

1. Single implants

A single dental implant placement is used when someone is only missing one of their teeth. Therefore, they only require one dental implant to be placed in their mouth.

2. Implant supported bridges

When someone is missing multiple teeth they often will need to get an implant supported bridge. This is an option that combines implants and bridges. The placement arrangement requires a dental professional to strategically place the dental implants in order to support any and all missing teeth.

3. Implant supported dentures

When someone is missing most of their teeth and interested in getting implant supported dentures, then a dental professional will strategically place a minimum of four dental implants into the patient's jawbone in order to support this denture choice.
