We have several treatment options available at Arthur Street Dental.
A missing tooth can be replaced by a dental implant without altering the healthy adjacent teeth. Once the implant is placed, a post (or abutment) is attached providing support for your final crown.
If you are missing more than one tooth, dental implants may be your best treatment option. Multiple implants are placed with individual crowns or a multi-unit bridge to rejuvenate your smile.
If all your upper or lower teeth are missing, a custom-made denture may be permanently secured using implants. The number of implants will vary for each patient. Your new teeth are firmly supported by the implants, stimulating the jaw and halting bone loss. We can remove the denture when needed for maintenance and cleaning.
If all upper or lower teeth are missing, multiple implants may be used to support a new removable denture that will attach securely to a custom-made bar. Your new teeth are firmly supported by the implants, stimulating the jaw and halting bone loss. Your new denture can be removed daily for cleaning.
If all your lower teeth are missing, another option may be to stabilise your removable denture using a small number of implants. This can sometimes be a cost-effective solution. Your current denture can sometimes be modified, or a new denture can be created. Your denture is snapped into place and can be removed daily for cleaning.
