This is the standard approach to dental implants. A single dental implant can replace a single missing tooth — first by gently inserting a slender metal screw called a post into your jawbone to mimic the natural root of a tooth. The post is then topped by a porcelain crown, which gives you an elegant artificial tooth that blends in with the real ones and helps restore your ability to bite and chew.
Dental implants can also be combined with bridges for a sturdier, more effective hold. Bridges are made from crowns that are fused together to fill in a gap in your mouth. Typically attached to your natural teeth via crowns, bridges can be attached to implants instead. This provides a stronger bite and doesn’t require removing any natural tooth structure to support the bridge, helping preserve your remaining natural teeth and supporting your overall oral health.
An All-on-4 approach is a faster, more economical method for using implants to replace a full arch (upper, lower, or both) of missing teeth. With this method, your dentist will use four dental implants per arch to support a set of new replacement teeth. All-on-4 costs less than creating individual single tooth implants for each missing tooth, and also requires a less extensive surgical preparation process.
