Multiple Teeth Replacement
It is not uncommon to be missing one or more teeth. In fact, there are millions of Americans who are missing all of their teeth on their upper or lower jaw. A multiple tooth implant is a sophisticated dental appliance that can help restore both the form and function of your smile. Mor Smiles can help you decide if a multiple tooth implant is right for you, and help you get the perfect implant for your unique oral health needs.
What a Multiple Tooth Implant Is
A multiple tooth implant is one of the best ways to replace more than one missing tooth. A dental implant is a specialized device that looks like a small screw. This screw replaces the root of a missing tooth by being anchored within the jawbone. Over the course of a couple months, the implant fuses with the living bone itself so that it has unparalleled stability compared to traditional dentures or bridges, the same as your natural teeth. Once the implant has had time to fully join with your jawbone, we will place a permanent crown on top, custom-sculpted to flawlessly blend in with the hue and shape of your natural teeth.
The Importance of Multiple Tooth Implants
Multiple tooth implants can have a major positive impact on your oral health. If your missing teeth are in the back of your mouth it may not seem necessary to replace them since they are not as noticeable when you smile, but these teeth are some of the most important in your mouth. Known as molars, these rear teeth are responsible for the majority of the chewing that you do. When you do not have a full set of molars, your front teeth are forced to do more chewing. Unfortunately, these narrow, more fragile teeth are damaged by too much chewing, so a dental implant does not just restore your missing teeth, it helps protect the ones you still have.
A multiple tooth is also a better option than most of the alternatives, like bridges and dentures. No solution will match the rest of your teeth in both appearance and ability as well as an implant. Unlike bridges and dentures, implants are actually stronger than your natural teeth.
What To Expect When Getting a Multiple Tooth Implant
Having a multiple tooth implant placed will typically require multiple visits to our office. During your first visit, we will sit down with you and go over your medical history and perform a series of scans and examinations on your mouth to determine how best to restore your smile. If a multiple tooth implant seems best for you, we can usually go right ahead and place the implants. While they heal, we will manufacture your custom crown. Once you are healed and the crown is ready, you can come back and have the permanent crown placed.
