REPLACE MISSING TOOTH

Multi-Tooth Dental Implants

Dental implants for multiple missing teeth are referred to as multi-tooth dental implants. Implant-supported teeth are permanently fixed in the mouth with a bridge of various carefully-created crowns connected to conceal the gap effectively.

What Are Multi-Tooth Dental Implants?

Owing to modern dental technology, these implants look just like real teeth. They do not slip or click like removable dentures; hence you would not need to worry about them falling out or moving when speaking, eating, or participating in activities.

Benefits of Multi-Tooth Dental Implants

There are many reasons for choosing to get multi-tooth dental implants:

Aesthetic & Cosmetic Appeal

They restore your beautiful smile and look natural. A customised implant bridge is designed to blend in with your smile and sit directly on your gum line. 

Prevents Jawbone Degeneration

With the loss of teeth and its tooth roots, your jawbone naturally decreases in mass—causing changes in your facial structure, and further tooth loss. With dental implants, it promotes the growth of novel jawbone.

Adjacent Teeth Unaffected

For other teeth replacement options, adjacent teeth are sometimes affected. For bridges, adjacent teeth are used as support structures for prosthetic teeth and for crowns, teeth need to be sometimes shaved down. Dental implants, however, exist as independent units and do not need the support of adjacent teeth.

Do I Need Multi-Tooth Dental Implants?

You may need multi-tooth dental implants if:
  • You have multiple missing teeth;
  • You want to enhance your smile;
  • Your teeth are rotated, crowded, or uneven;
  • You have many gaps in between your teeth;
  • You suffer from a dysfunctional bite.

What Does the Procedure Involve?

Stage 1: Pre-Treatment

  • Assessing Suitability of the Treatment 

You need to visit an oral and maxillofacial surgeon for a full mouth and jaw examination to check if you’re a suitable candidate for the surgery.

 

An appointment with a periodontist is also required, as your gums, jawbone, and the other structural support around your teeth need to be examined to make sure you’re eligible to receive implants. Following that, you need to consult a prosthodontist who specialises in dentures and implants. In some instances, you might even need to see an ear, nose, and throat provider.  

 

These steps are required for a tooth restoration plan because you need to ensure that multi-tooth dental implants are suitable for your mouth. The complete process can take between six to nine months.



Stage 3: Post-Operative Care

After surgery, it is better to avoid eating any hard foods that could potentially damage your implants while they heal.

 

A soft food diet is recommended for a week, and you should take particular care for at least 12 weeks after surgery.

Stage 2: Multi-Tooth Dental Implant Procedure

  • Inserting Dental Implants

Before the placement of multi-tooth dental implants, an incision is made in the gum tissue, and a titanium implant post is inserted into the jawbone.

 

This is repeated various times, depending on the number and position of missing teeth. Once the implant posts are in place, protective caps are put over the implantation sites - to protect areas around the posts.

 

These caps also maintain the soft tissue's shape until the implants fuse with the jawbone, and the restorations are created and attached.
