Dental Implant Types
Single Dental Implants
If you're looking for a comfortable and natural looking solution to missing teeth, a dental implant might be perfect for you. Dental Implants are one of the most versatile treatments available for missing teeth.
Dental Implants consist of two parts: a false tooth made to look just like the real thing, and a supporting rod made from titanium. These high quality materials take the place of different parts of your missing tooth. The supporting rod takes the place of the root, and is placed into the jawbone. This operation is not as difficult as it may first sound, especially not to a skilled and experienced dentist like those at Midlands Smile Centres.
A Denture Implant is a more modern solution to a toothless mouth, and doesn't have as many problems as regular dentures. Two major causes for concern with dentures are that it is difficult to eat some foods, as the dentures tend to move, and that tooth loss causes a reduction in your jawbone size.
With a denture implant you can have a fixed or removable denture that functions more like your normal teeth than a regular denture does. This is done by having dental implants fitted in to the jawbone. Not only does this make them more secure, it also stops the jawbone from receding as much as normal.

Implant Supported Bridges
Traditional dental bridges have at least two healthy teeth as support, whereas Implant Supported bridges are instead supported by dental implants. There are several advantages to this, with the main one being that traditional bridges can cause damage to your remaining teeth. The extra weight of the bridge can cause your remaining healthy teeth to wear away. An implant Supported Bridge is also capable of lasting much longer than a traditional bridge.
