A dental implant is a titanium post that is inserted into the jawbone to act as an artificial tooth root to replace a missing tooth.
How many teeth can be replaced with implants?
Dental implants can be used to support an individual dental crown, dental bridge of any size, or a denture. Dr. Malin will determine how many implants are needed to support a dental bridge or a denture based on a thorough assessment of your jaw’s bone volume and density. For bridges and dentures, he can often use only a few implants to support many replacement teeth at once.
