Cambridge Dental Implant Clinic
Dental implants are essentially replacements for the natural roots of teeth. They can be used singly to replace one tooth or multiply to replace several or all missing teeth. Dental implants are titanium cylinders to which the bone attached to closely over time. This is referred to as "osseointegration".The dental implant has an internal screw space to which components can be attached. This allows crowns or bridges to be attached to dentures to be supported. Thus dental implants offer an alternative to dentures and bridgework or as a means to secure loose dentures.
Dental implants are a very flexible way of replacing missing teeth. Dental implants can be used to replace one missing tooth, several teeth with a bridge or a full arch of teeth either as a bridge or retaining a denture. The number of implants required and type of restoration will depend on the bone available, the number of teeth missing and the type of restoration that will be produced. For example six implants on the upper and five on the lower can retain a full arch fixed bridge. To retain an overdenture four implants on the upper and two on the lower would usually be required.
