Have you lost several teeth to extraction, injury, or decay? Extractions can lead to large holes in your smile, which can become embarrassing and frustrating. One of the best options available for missing teeth is to consider dental implants. Multi-tooth implants are designed to restore your smile and allow you to enjoy your life.
How Many Teeth Can Be Implanted?
At Bismarck Advanced Dental and Implants, we specialize in multi-tooth dental implants. Multi-tooth implants are designed to be used with a partial denture, with an implant supported bridge, or as several implants in one area. Each patient will need to undergo an oral health evaluation to determine if they are a candidate for multiple dental implants.
Certain patients will need to undergo bone grafting prior to multi-tooth implant treatment. There is virtually no limit to how many teeth can be treated. We have performed thousands of dental implants and full mouth restorative procedures.
Why Choose Multi-Tooth Implants?
We do perform fixed bridges and removable partial dentures, but we still recommend using a multi-tooth implants. Dental implants are permanent solutions that do not require a lot of maintenance, unlike bridges and dentures. If you want to restore your smile back to one you enjoy sharing, dental implants give you that solution. Patients will be able to have permanent teeth that only need regular brushing and flossing, and most people will not be able to see that you do have implants.
Dental implants are stronger than bridges and dentures, while also providing health benefits. An implant acts like the root of the tooth, and it bonds with the bone, allowing it to keep the bone strong and healthy. A missing tooth area can start to experience bone loss as there is nothing in the bone causing it to continue nourishing the area. Failure to have bone in that area can start to lead to changes in your face shape.
Overall, dental implants are functional, comfortable, aesthetically pleasing, and can help to restore your confidence. If you do have missing teeth and are seeking multi-tooth dental implants, contact Bismarck Advanced Dental and Implants at 701-390-1920 for more information.
What to Expect
If you have several missing teeth, the dentists at our North Dakota dental clinic will recommend multi-tooth dental implants. Depending on how many teeth you have missing and where they are located, you may need tooth extraction, bone grafting or orthodontia to prepare for teeth replacement implants.
After you undergo an exam at our dental clinic to certify that you are a healthy candidate for dental implants, our dentists see if your jaw is healthy and strong enough to receive the titanium posts. If you have gone without teeth for many years, your jaw may have receded, necessitating a bone graft.
Another common issue is teeth drifting into the spaces left behind by missing teeth. If these teeth are healthy, we may employ orthodontics to move them back into their correct places. If they are not healthy, we will recommend extraction.
Our dentists may implant two or more titanium posts in your jaw to hold your multi-tooth implant. This saves you money, because you won’t need a post for each tooth.
While you heal, you will be fitted with a temporary dental appliance. Once our dentists pronounce you ready for the final stage of your multi-tooth implant, they will place the permanent crowns. You will once again have a full set of functioning, beautiful teeth that will last a lifetime.
