Replacing one tooth

A crown mounted on a dental implant is the best choice if you have a tooth missing in the upper or lower jaw. The need to replace a missing tooth could be the result of an accident or because there was no predisposition for a tooth at birth.

The dental implant is installed in the jawbone. No healthy teeth are affected or damaged. With other replacement solutions, adjacent teeth might need to be ground down to support a bridge.
The abutment is attached to the dental implant. A crown is then placed on the abutment, fitting perfectly at the edge of the gum.


The new tooth is now complete and it is virtually impossible to see the difference between the existing teeth and the new tooth.

Replacing several teeth

If you have lost several teeth there are two solutions: separate crowns on dental implants or a bridge attached to several dental implants.

Between two and four dental implants are installed for a dental implant bridge. This solution does not affect your own teeth. The bridge will function for many years, regardless of the condition of your existing teeth.
Abutments are attached to the dental implants. The next step is to fit a bridge; the new set of teeth is placed on the abutments.


The dental implant bridge is now in place and can withstand the strong chewing forces that occur in the back of the mouth. It feels and functions like natural teeth.
