Multiple Teeth Replacement with Dental Implants
Tooth loss is a serious issue that can happen for some different reasons. Some of the most common causes of tooth loss include gum disease and facial trauma. Losing several teeth causes many complications, including difficulty, eating and speaking. Your smile is affected, as is your confidence. Tooth loss also impacts the health of your jawbone, leading to bone loss, misalignment of healthy teeth, and alterations to the aesthetics of your face. Optimum Oral Surgery Group can provide replacement of several teeth with multiple teeth dental implant.
What is a Multiple Tooth Implant?
Dental implants are a popular modern treatment for replacing missing teeth. This treatment uses small titanium posts to provide support for your dental restorations. The titanium posts are surgically placed into your jawbone. Once placed, your bone gradually begins to fuse to the posts, stabilizing them into your jaw and turning them into strong roots that hold your new teeth securely in place.
A multiple tooth implant is a restoration that is provided to replace two or more consecutive missing teeth, giving you an alternative to a traditional bridge or a partial denture. This restoration is often referred to as an implant supported bridge. The number of posts required to support your replacement teeth depends upon several factors, including the number of posts being placed and the condition of your jawbone.
What to Expect During Implant Placement
Placing a multiple teeth implant requires a surgical procedure. Surgery is performed under a local anesthetic and sedation. Small incisions are made in your gums to provide access to your jawbone. Next, small holes are drilled into the bone, and the implant posts are placed immediately inside. Your gums are sutured closed, and temporary teeth are placed on the posts.
Healing following implant placement can take several weeks to several months. As you heal, your bone gradually fuses to the posts, stabilizing them within your jaw. Once you have fully healed, impressions of your mouth are taken and used to design and create your customized dental restorations. When they are complete, your multiple teeth implant is secured into place with small screws.
