The Four Types Of Dental Implant Restorations

A dentist in Monroeville, PA may recommend dental implants if a patient is experiencing missing, crooked, or damaged teeth. There are four types of dental implant restorations that can be used to replace missing teeth. These four types of restorations are called single tooth implants, implant supported dentures, full mouth acryllic (pmma), and full arch dental implants.

Each type of dental implant restoration has its own benefits and drawbacks, so it is important for patients to choose the right one for their specific needs. 

Dental Implant Restoration Types

A single tooth implant is the simplest type of dental restoration and is most often used when a tooth has been lost due to injury or decay. The single tooth implant is placed directly into the jawbone at one end.

Implant supported bridges are placed on the opposing side of missing teeth. Unlike single tooth implants, implant supported bridges can also be used to replace teeth that have been lost due to injury or tooth decay.

The most common type of dental restoration are inlays and onlays. These are placed directly into the jawbone to restore teeth that have been lost due to tooth loss or decay.

Full arch zirconia dental implants are the most popular type of implant supported bridge, while partial arch zirconia dental implants are more suitable when restoring teeth that have been lost due to injury or decay. They replace the original teeth, and provide a foundation for new teeth to be grown in.

Dental implants are super versatile, and choosing this option in Monroeville, PA can be a great method for smile restoration. Since they are an investment, it is very important to care for them properly. This means ensuring that they are cleaned per instructions from a dentist, avoiding any harsh, acidic, hard, or sticky foods, and making sure to keep up with regular dental appointments to make sure things are going smoothly.
