Types of Dental Implant

Our Dental Implant Services

Discovery more about Clínica Ford services:

Single Tooth Dental Implants

Single tooth dental implants are an excellent solution for those who need to replace a missing tooth. This type of dental implant involves the placement of a titanium post into the jawbone, which will fuse with the bone over time, creating a strong and secure base for a custom-made dental crown. This crown will match the color and shape of your natural teeth and provide a long-lasting solution for single-tooth replacement.

Multiple Teeth Dental Implants

For patients who need to replace several missing teeth, multiple teeth dental implants can provide an effective and natural-looking solution. This involves the placement of two or more titanium posts that will act as anchors for a custom-made dental bridge or denture that fits perfectly within the mouth.

Full Mouth Dental Implants

Full mouth dental implants, also referred to as full arch restoration or full mouth reconstruction, can provide a solution for patients who have lost an entire arch of teeth in their upper or lower jaw. This process involves the placement of four or six titanium posts into the jawbone, followed by a custom-made dental bridge or denture, which will be securely attached to the implants.
