Different Options with Dental Implants

Different Options with Dental ImplantsDental implants are highly adaptable and can be used to support several types of tooth replacement options. Whether you are missing one tooth, several teeth or all your teeth, you may be a candidate for dental implants.

One Tooth

One missing tooth can be replaced using a single titanium dental implant and a porcelain crown. This type of dental implant looks just like your own natural tooth, and you can use it, brush it and floss it just like you do with your other teeth. After the dental implant is placed, a temporary restoration may be added to the abutment. You will receive your permanent restoration after the implant has fused with the jawbone, which can take from four to 12 months.

Multiple Teeth

If you are missing several teeth, you may struggle to eat a nutritious diet, develop speech impediments and feel self-conscious about your smile. Dental implants can replace your lost teeth using either individual porcelain crowns or dental bridges. Our dentist can help you learn more about which option may be best for you.


When you are missing an entire arch of teeth or all your teeth, your face may appear sunken, your jawbone may begin to deteriorate and you may be unable to eat normal foods or speak clearly. Dental implants can be used to preserve jawbone density and support dentures for a more secure, natural-looking restoration.
