FAQ about dental implants
Dental Implants can be used to Replace Several Teeth
When you are missing several teeth an option you can look for is a dental implant supported bridge to replace them.
You have the option of replacing each missing tooth with a single dental implant or having multiple dental implants placed then the bridge placed on to the dental implants. The dental implant supported bridge is diametrically different from a traditional dental bridge. The dental implant bridge is supported directly and attached to the dental implants so that the dental bridge is not interacting with the neighbouring teeth like a traditional dental bridge thus causing no damage to healthy teeth.
The procedure for placing a dental implant supported bridge is very similar to the placing of a single dental implant, with the dental implants being placed, the healing prcess and the placing of the dental implant abutment. The difference is instead of placing a single tooth on each abutment, post, the dental bridge is placed on the multiple posts attached with screws or cement.
Oral hygiene is the key to success after the placing of the dental implants as you need to keep your oral health to the highest standards. Regular checkups are essential to maintain your oral health and to check up on your dental implants that have been placed.
