What Are Dental Implants Used For?
Single Tooth Replacement
A single tooth can be replaced by an individual implant topped by a carefully crafted artificial crown. Your replacement tooth will look and feel completely natural and will have the same biting and chewing power as a natural tooth. Dr. Hidayathulla Khan will design your crown in such a way that it blends in perfectly with the rest of your teeth and no one will ever notice you have an implant.
Multiple Tooth Replacement
For replacing several teeth in a row, Dr. Hidaythulla Khan will either use individual implants topped by single replacement crowns, or he will use an implant-supported bridge. An implant-supported bridge is a series of connected crowns that is supported by two or more implants. Dr. Khan will examine you and will recommend the option that he feels will work best for your needs.
