|Multiple Tooth Implants
If you have multiple missing teeth that lower your confidence and diminish your smile's aesthetic appeal, consider getting multiple tooth implants. They offer a permanent and durable solution to all those who want to restore their jaw's full functionality and enhance the appearance of their smile. At Advanced Dental Associates, we specialize in restorative dentistry procedures, including single and multiple dental implants, All-on-4, dental crowns, and dental bridges. If you have multiple missing teeth, a multiple tooth implant is an ideal solution for you.
How do Multiple Tooth Implants Work?
The multiple tooth implant procedure is pretty similar to that of a single tooth implant. The dentist will place titanium screws in the jaw as a replacement for 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. Here, 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 an unnecessary amount of 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 Implant Procedure
The multiple tooth implant procedure follows the same timeline as a single-tooth implant procedure, and the steps are broadly the same, with only a few differences.
Multiple tooth implants are of multiple types. If you have consecutive missing teeth, a bridge supported implant is an excellent option. Two implants can support around four to six teeth. However, if you are missing teeth randomly, multiple individual implants are a better option. Aged individuals who are missing most of their teeth can opt for All-on-4 treatment, which is essentially an implant-supported bridge for the entire length of the lower or upper jaw. It is a permanent solution that restores their jaw to full functionality, allowing them to bite and chew normally again.
