When two or more teeth in a row are missing, it can create an undesirable gap in your smile, causing both cosmetic and functional issues. At Admira Dentistry, we can extract and replace broken down teeth through the use of state-of-the-art multiple dental implants that function as durable, long-lasting tooth roots. With implants, you can feel secure knowing you can eat whatever you like, smile without feeling self-conscious, and enjoy a naturally stunning and authentic set of new teeth.
What are multiple dental implants?
If you’ve lost several teeth in a row, Dr. Sixto can create a set of multiple dental implants to replace the tooth roots before attaching customized crowns that are perfectly matched to your unique smile. Another option is to place a dental bridge atop two implants. Dr. Sixto will recommend the best option for you after completing a detailed consultation and evaluation.
What are the benefits of multiple implants?
- Implants provide the chewing power needed to preserve bone density in the jaw
- Implants can help keep adjacent teeth from shifting
- No adhesives are required
- Improved chewing power means better absorption of nutrients and preservation of taste
- No adjacent teeth need to be ground down during the implant placement process
- Implants can support many types of restorations while appearing and functioning like natural teeth
Implants vs. conventional bridges
Dr. Sixto typically recommends multiple dental implants over bridges for several key reasons. With implants, there is no need to grind down the adjacent teeth to fit the bridge, a practice that can lead to tooth fractures, decay, or infection down the line. Additionally, bridges do not supply the anchoring and chewing force necessary to support a stable, long-lasting outcome. Implant-supported bridges are favored over conventional bridges because they help maintain the jaw’s bone volume by providing ample chewing pressure.
Implants vs. dentures
Prior to implants, guests only had one option for replacing missing teeth: dentures applied with adhesives. Today, multiple dental implants can support dentures and prevent further bone loss. Conventional dentures simply do not provide the chewing force needed to preserve the jaw’s contours, bone, and musculature over time.
Who makes an ideal candidate for dental implants?
Today’s dental implants are appropriate for almost any guest struggling with missing teeth, as they can help restore the smile while preserving bone strength in the jaw. Implants look and function just like regular teeth, allowing you to feel secure in your smile long-term. Dr. Sixto will provide an in-depth consultation, diagnostic evaluation, and oral exam in order to best determine your candidacy.
In general, good candidates have the following characteristics:
- They have healthy gums
- They have adequate bone density
- They practice good oral hygiene
- They are non-smokers, or are willing to quit
- They are willing to be patient with the implant process
