Multiple tooth loss can lead to several oral and general health problems. It may become difficult to eat your favorite foods, affect your facial appearance, and lack the confidence to smile in social situations. In addition, there will be the risk of the remaining teeth shifting out of their natural positions in the mouth.
What Are Multiple Implant Tooth Replacements?
There are a few alternatives to replace multiple missing teeth. Each choice has its advantages and disadvantages, and when you visit our dental office, Amin Tabatabaian DDS PLLC, we will help you decide which tooth replacements are best for you.
What Factors Determine the Implant Tooth Replacement?
The appropriate implant-supported tooth replacement option that will be right for your condition will be determined based on a few factors like the number and location of the missing teeth in the mouth. To reconstruct your smile, an implant-supported bridge will be an ideal solution if you have missing teeth in a row. However, if you have lost teeth at different places throughout your oral cavity, an implant-supported partial denture may be a better choice for your situation.
Multiple Implant Tooth Replacement at Amin Tabatabaian DDS PLLC
An implant-supported bridge holds several teeth that are secured permanently to dental implants. The number of implants that are needed to support the bridge depends on the patient’s situation. But most commonly, at least two implants on either end of the gap are necessary to anchor a bridge holding the prosthetic teeth in between.
Implant-supported dentures are designed as the foundation for a permanent or removable arch of replacement teeth. The dentures are clipped onto the dental implants for a very secure fit. The implants provide solid support to the dentures to remain in position, eliminating the need for the natural suction force of the mouth. This additional stability allows most patients to eat more solid foods, improving their nutrition and quality of life.
What Is the Cost of Multiple Implant Tooth Replacement?
The cost of your tooth replacement will depend on various factors like the number of implants, the artificial teeth that need to be reinstated, and if any preliminary treatment like a bone graft is required. During your appointment, we will provide you with a rough estimate of your procedure to help you make an informed decision to suit your needs.
