Multiple Tooth Implants
If you are missing several teeth, you may be a candidate for multiple tooth implants. Multiple implants can be used to replace some of the roots of your missing teeth and to support porcelain crowns, dental bridges or even dentures.
Dental implants offer multiple advantages over traditional tooth replacement options. There is no need to alter the natural structure of your healthy teeth to support a dental bridge. Instead, dental implants can support the bridge or a partial denture. Multiple tooth implants can also be placed strategically to support a denture.
One of the reasons that many patients prefer dental implants is because they simply look more natural than other tooth replacement options. However, one of the biggest reasons we recommend multiple dental implants is because they are simply healthier. After the implants are placed, they fuse with the jawbone. This helps preserve natural bone tissue and gum tissue and reduces the risk of bone loss that generally occurs along with the loss of a tooth.
Multiple tooth implants are placed during a surgical procedure. The titanium screw-like devices fit into the jaw just like your tooth roots do, and over the next few months, your jawbone will heal around them. As the bone tissue fuses with the implant, it will create a remarkably strong, durable support for your restoration. Once healing is complete, abutments will be attached to your dental implants, and your restoration or restorations will be attached to the abutments.
Each patient is different, and treatment options can vary based on your unique dental health needs and goals. If you are ready to learn more about how you can enjoy a bright new smile with multiple tooth implants, we can help. Give us a call and schedule your appointment today.
