Types of Implant Procedures
Single Tooth Implant: An implant used to replace a single missing tooth. This implant is supported by a crown or a cap that replaces the individual tooth.
Multiple Teeth Implant: An implant used to replace several consecutive missing teeth. A bridge or a denture can be placed between two implants.
Full Arch Implant: An implant used in cases where all upper or lower teeth are missing. A prosthesis is attached to several implants placed in the jawbone.
These information reflect the general process. However, the process can be different for each patient, and the stages can vary depending on the doctor’s evaluation and the patient’s needs.
