Before the advancement of cosmetic dentistry, the only options people with decayed or missing teeth had were dentures or bridges. However, those times are long past now and there are better options awaiting these patients, especially dental implants. Dental implants are a durable, healthy, real-looking, and comfortable solution to replacing missing teeth with artificial ones on a long term basis.
Basically when it comes to options available in tooth implants, they are focused on patient requirements.
Three Types of Standard Tooth Implants
Single Tooth Replacement
The best solution to filling an unwanted missing-tooth gap in your teeth is to opt for a single tooth implant. A simple and efficient process, in a few months you can have a replacement that looks just like the original.
Multiple Teeth Replacement
Multiple missing teeth can also be easily accommodated with dental implants, regardless of whether they’re random throughout a set of teeth or lined together. Multiple dental implants are given either individual crowns or if possible, are given a fixed bridge, but in both cases, the results are natural looking, comfortable teeth.
All Teeth Replacement
Replacing all teeth with implants is known as a full arch dental implant. It can either consist of all upper teeth, all lower, or both. The process for replacing all teeth may sound scary but in fact, it is just as comfortable as replacing a single tooth.
However, when concerned with today’s options for tooth implants, there are also advanced implant technologies that provide suitable options to all patients, regardless of whether they need one tooth replaced, multiple, or all. These options include:

Basic Dental Implants
This type of dental implant works to further simplify the process so as to provide an added level of comfort. The goal of basic dental implants is to become such a simple process that any dentist who desires to can offer it through their daily practice.
Mini Dental Implants
As the term suggests, in this type, the implants use mini screws to conduct the implant, making the process less invasive than the regular process. This type of implant is aimed at providing stability in soft bone.
