Multiple Tooth Implants

There are many reasons why you might lose multiple teeth. You may have suffered from gum disease. You could have experienced a serious facial injury. Whatever the reason, your quality of life is seriously impacted. Eating becomes a challenge, and your health can suffer due to malnutrition. Depending upon the location of your missing teeth, your speech may suffer. You become more likely to develop gum disease. Your jawbone weakens and changes shape. Replacing missing teeth is essential to restoring your smile, your oral health, and the functions of your mouth. Rockwall Oral Surgery can help with multiple tooth implants.

Dental Bridges and Partials

In the past, your options were limited when it came to replacing multiple missing teeth. Depending upon the number of teeth you were missing, you could either get a bridge (3 or less) or a partial denture. A bridge consists of the replacement teeth set between two crowns. The process requires that your adjacent teeth be ground down to make room for the restoration. Moreover, while a partial denture preserves your adjacent teeth, it contains metal clasps that hook onto your teeth. The replacement teeth also require a fair bit of maintenance. Neither option preserves your jawbone. You still experience bone loss, which can alter the shape of your face, throwing off your bite and loosening your adjacent teeth.

Multiple Tooth Implants

While bridges and partial dentures are still in use today, you have another option – multiple tooth dental implant. Implants are titanium rods that are surgically inserted directly into your jawbone. As your bone heals, it fuses to the implants, turning them into “roots” which then support your implant supported bridge. The exact number of implants depends on several factors, including the health of your jaw and the number of missing teeth.

The process to get your final replacement teeth can take several weeks, as your bone heals around the implants. You are provided with a temporary restoration in the meantime, which provides you with some restored abilities of your mouth. Once you have fully healed, abutments are placed on the exposed ends of the implants. Molds are taken of your mouth and used to fabricate your permanent restoration. The teeth can be finished and polished to perfectly imitate your natural teeth.

Benefits of Multiple Tooth Implants

There are several benefits associated with multiple tooth implants:
•  There is no need to prepare your adjacent teeth, leaving your perfectly healthy teeth intact.
•  There are no visible, embarrassing, wires or clasps.
•  Implants and the crowns are permanent. They do not need to be removed.
•  They can be cared for just like your natural teeth.
•  They do not rest on your gums, making them more comfortable.
•  The crowns look just like your natural teeth.
•  Your ability to eat properly is restored, and so, too, is your digestion (and nutrition).
•  Your speech is restored.
•  Implants prevent bone loss. Because the titanium implants imitate the roots of your natural teeth, they help to maintain the strength and integrity of your jawbone.

If you have experienced the loss of several teeth in one area of your mouth, you may be a candidate for multiple teeth implants. Contact Pinnacle Oral Surgery Specialists today at (972) 771-0400 to find out.
