What Types of Prosthesis are Available?

A dental prosthesis is secured to one or more implants. You may have a single, partial, or complete prosthesis, depending on how many teeth you are missing. The permanent prosthesis is not made until the jawbone has fused to the implant. Until then, a temporary prosthesis may be used.

Types of Prosthesis:

  • Single Prosthesis—used to replace a single missing tooth. One implant is all that is needed for support.
  • Fixed Partial Prosthesis—replaces two or more teeth. Two or more implants are used for support.
  • Complete Denture Prosthesis—replaces all the teeth in an upper or lower jaw or both. The number of implants needed will be determined by your oral surgeon.
