Multiple Teeth Implants in San Antonio, TX
The multiple-tooth implant procedure is similar to a single-tooth implant. The dentist will place titanium screws in the jaw to replace the teeth’s root and then place a crown over it once the implant heals and fuses with the jaw bone. However, if you have multiple missing teeth, say three, your dentist will use an implant-supported bridge to replace missing teeth.
Instead of planting three implants, the dentist will place two to preserve the dental structure. They will then place a bridge to replace the missing teeth once the bone fuses with the implants and the gums heal. Placing unnecessary dental implants in the jaw bone can weaken the natural structure and increase the healing period. Using a bridge to replace the missing teeth is a cost and time-efficient option that maintains the jaw’s integrity and prevents unnecessary damage to the structure.
Multiple tooth implants are of multiple types. A bridge-supported implant is an excellent option if you have consecutive missing teeth. Two implants can support around four to six teeth. However, multiple individual implants are a better option if you randomly missing teeth.
Aged individuals missing most teeth can opt for All-on-4 treatment, an implant-supported bridge for the entire lower or upper jaw length. It is a permanent procedure that restores their jaw to full functionality, allowing them to bite and chew normally again.
