What Are the Different Dental Implant Options?

When people are missing a tooth or multiple teeth, it's a good idea to replace them with implants so that the bone in the area will stay in place instead of deteriorating. It's also a great way to eat better and have a better smile. When you are interested in any type of implant, an implant dentist can do a number of different types of implants to replace your teeth.

Single implants are done to replace a single tooth, but that isn't the only type of implant that is available. Single implants are full-sized dental implants, but there are also mini-implants that are used for different purposes.

Mini-implants are often used for dentures that are supported by implants. These require between four and six of the smaller implants to support a full arch of dentures.

Dentures that are supported by dental implants can be removable dentures or fixed dentures. Removable dentures are taken out at night and for cleaning. Permanent dentures can only be removed with the help of the implant dentist. Many people choose these because they are low-hassle dentures that stay in all the time and don't have to be taken out and inserted again the next day.
