Multiple Dental Implants: An Overview
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a shocking 100 million Americans between the ages of 35 and 44 are already missing several adult teeth. The great news is that, in addition to treating Single Missing Teeth, dental implants also enjoy an incredible success rate in the restoration of multiple missing teeth. Regardless of how many teeth you have lost over the decades, be it two, three of even most of your original adult teeth, there are solutions awaiting you at MALO SMILES.
The Problems with Multiple Missing Teeth
If you have multiple missing teeth, then chances are you’re well acquainted with the various problems it causes you:
- A gappy smile and self-consciousness
- Lower confidence in the social and professional working environment
- Difficulty or discomfort eating certain foods
- Even difficulty articulating properly during speech
- Poor hygiene as food and bacteria become trapped in the empty spaces
- A looseness of the teeth neighboring the spaces
- A drop in the bone level at the site of the multiple missing teeth.
This latter point is a result of atrophy of the jawbone that previously supported the roots of the missing teeth. Having multiple missing teeth addressed promptly avoids many of the short and long-term health problems caused by jawbone atrophy and dental instability.
So, what is involved in our multiple dental implant procedures?
Replacing Multiple Missing Teeth at MALO SMILES
For every individual patient there is a unique course of treatment that will give them back their beautiful smiles and a strong, functional bite. As such, the first step on your journey to oral rehabilitation will be your Initial SCREENING Consultation with us here at MALO SMILES. Our friendly and experienced staff will examine the nature of your oral health problems before recommending various courses of potential treatment using multiple dental implants. Molds or impressions will be taken of your teeth to aid in the customized fabrication of your new teeth, be they implant-supported crowns or implant-supported bridges.
In the case of multiple missing teeth, the procedure undertaken to restore your smile and the kind of dental appliances we recommend typically depends upon the distribution of the missing teeth in your mouth. If they are located next to each other, then an implant-supported bridge can be used (as you see in the above-featured Nobel Biocare image). If they are isolated single missing teeth, then we can simply use single dental implant-supported crowns (see Nobel Biocare image below).
If you have a failing dentition and are missing most of your original adult teeth, then you may be a candidate for the All-on-4® dental implant protocol, which can give you new, non-removable teeth in as little as one day, with only a single surgery.
