Implant Restoration

There is a tremendous amount of permutations on the types of prosthetics that can be attached to your dental implant.

How does it work?

Typically, a removable prosthesis can be designed to be attached  to a custom made anchor bar,  ball on socket attachments, or a patented attachment system. The latter option is presently the most widely used. The dental attachment system is the most popular removable prosthetic system because the degree of ‘grab’ (or retentive force) can be modified without the need for expensive and time consuming  modification to the removable prosthesis. The ability to change the amount of ‘grab’ contributes tremendously to the degree comfort to the wearer.

Implant Restoration Categories

Most all of them can be classified into a few simple categories:

Single prosthesis (crown)

(crown) is used to replace one missing tooth – each prosthetic tooth attaches to its own implant.

Partial prosthesis

(partial fixed bridge) can replace two or more teeth and may require only two or three implants.

Complete dental prosthesis

(complete fixed bridge) replaces all the teeth in your upper or lower jaw. The number of implants varies depending upon which type of complete prosthesis (removable or fixed) is recommended.

Removable dental prosthesis

(implant supported overdenture) is a denture that replaces all the teeth in one dental arch and the prosthesis that can be removed by the patient.
