As dental technology improves, there are more options for patients who have lost multiple teeth, including a multiple tooth implant. There are several types of implants and implant structures, but for those with severe tooth loss, this type of implant is a great solution for restoring their smile and their ability to eat the foods…
Advantages of a Multiple Tooth Implant
A multiple tooth implant is a small metal post that is surgically placed in the jawbone to replace one or more missing teeth. A tooth, bridge, dentures, or part of a denture can be attached to the implant, and it will feel as natural as your original teeth. If you have lost some or all of your teeth from injury, accidents, periodontal disease, untreated cavities, or gum disease, then this may be for you. If multiple teeth need to be replaced, multiple implants may be used. Using multiple implants is especially ideal in cases where:
- An additional implant can support multiple teeth by itself
- Multiple implants are needed to achieve the desired result
- Multiple implants are used for cosmetic reasons
There are multiple advantages of multiple tooth implants including:
- Multiple teeth can be restored in multiple locations at once
- Multiple teeth can be replaced with a more aesthetic appearance possible with multiple implants
- Multiple implants save time and money by allowing the final result to be accomplished all at once
1. Multiple locations at once
Multiple implants can be used to replace multiple teeth that are missing. After the implants have been placed, a tooth replacement for each implant can take place, allowing restoration of several teeth at once. Implants function similarly to natural teeth and will allow you to eat foods normally and maintain good dental health.
2. A more aesthetic appearance
Multiple implants can be used to replace multiple teeth that are missing for purely aesthetic reasons. They allow the periodontist or oral surgeon to create a more aesthetically pleasing smile in situations where people want to look their best for special occasions.
3. Save time and money
Multiples implants can add up to a single procedure, saving time and money for the individual. It is ideal for patients who want all of their teeth replaced immediately after they have been removed. The average cost of placing 3-5 implants is about the same as placing one implant, making it cost-efficient.
4. Good dental health
Multiple dental implants function just like natural teeth, allowing you to eat foods normally and maintain good dental health without the worry of damage or injury caused by missing teeth. Implants are made from advanced titanium materials, which are very strong and fuse together with the jawbone in a way that is stable and long-lasting. You can expect them to last your entire lifetime and prevent you from needing additional replacements.
5. Prevention of bone loss
Your jawbone will maintain its strength by placing implants in the jawbones as it anticipates support for teeth that are missing. Bone loss due to tooth loss is a major concern, but using multiple implants will keep your bone density where it should be and prevent you from needing jawbone grafting.
Multiple tooth implants are an ideal way to replace multiple teeth that have been lost. They will replace your missing teeth seamlessly, allowing you to go about your daily routine without fear of damage or pain caused by the lack of natural teeth.
