Dental implants are affordable, effective options for replacing multiple missing teeth in your mouth. They look and feel just like your natural teeth, making them easy to care for and manage in the long term. Whether you have lost multiple teeth due to decay or trauma, an experienced oral and maxillofacial surgeon can help you restore your smile and confidence with multiple tooth dental implants.
Dental Implants for replacing several teeth eliminates the need for the oral surgeon to grind down adjacent teeth, leaving the rest of your mouth healthy and intact. The first step requires the oral surgeon to place the dental implants into the bone below the gum tissue where the teeth are missing. Once placed, you will allow several weeks for healing time while the implant integrates into your jaw bone.
Once the surgical sites have healed, the oral surgeon will attach abutments, or small metal posts, to the dental implants. Your oral surgeon will work with your dentist to make impressions in order to design a custom-fitted crown or bridge. This ensures your teeth are as natural-looking as possible.
The final step of the multiple teeth dental implant procedure requires the oral surgeon to cement the custom-fitted crown or bridge onto the abutments in the jaw bone. After placement, you will enjoy a full mouth of strong, healthy teeth, as the implants will not disturb the adjacent teeth.
By replacing your missing teeth with dental implants, you will enjoy the look, feel and function of your natural teeth. Once placed and healed, your dental implants allow your chewing ability and your bite to remain intact so you can eat and speak properly. This safe and effective procedure also helps to cease any bone deterioration, so your facial structure remains the same and your adjacent teeth are not adversely affected. Dental implants for multiple teeth replacement will restore your confidence and smile, leaving you happy, healthy and able to enjoy the foods you ate prior to losing your teeth.
