Multiple-Teeth Dental Implants
No matter what area of your mouth has missing teeth or how many teeth you have lost, there is always a restorative dentistry treatment that can successfully replace them. For many patients, the answer is multiple-teeth dental implants, a permanent solution for tooth loss that restores both form and function. Dental implants are available from Dr. Ken Cirka and his team of specialists at Philadelphia Dentistry in Center City.
Multiple-Teeth Dental Implants vs A Dental Bridge
It is always possible to replace several missing teeth that are right next to each other using a dental bridge. This is a solid, secure solution. However, if multiple-teeth dental implants are an option, this is always the smarter choice for a durable, permanent repair.
A dental bridge needs to be attached to neighboring teeth to anchor the restoration in place, but multiple-teeth dental implants are surgically implanted in the jawbone and topped with a customized multi-tooth crown. The implants replace teeth above and below the gumline for a complete restoration.
Both solutions restore multiple missing teeth at one time without the cost of replacing each individual tooth but, if you have the choice, multiple-teeth dental implants are the safest, long-lasting, most natural-looking solution. Your Philadelphia dentist will guide you toward the best solution for your oral health.
Types of Multiple-Teeth Dental Implants
There are several types of multiple-teeth dental implants, all of them available from your Philadelphia dentist:
- All-Teeth Dental Implants: If you are missing all your teeth on the top or bottom of your mouth, they can be replaced with all-teeth dental implants and customized dentures. Don’t worry about the mention of dentures – this version eliminates adhesives, does not cover the palate, and does not slide around your mouth or become unreliable at the worst times. The dentures snap onto the dental implants for a permanent smile restoration.
- All-On-4 Dental Implants: Just another way to say all-teeth dental implants, the All-On-4 solution uses four dental implants to do the work of customized dentures without any of the drawbacks. Four implants are placed in the jawbone where the patient has the highest bone density and, once the areas have healed, a partial denture or a dental bridge is adhered to the implants.
- Denture Implants: As you get to know the different types of multiple-teeth dental implants, it becomes clear how similar they all are. Denture implants a combo of dentures and dental implants and are especially good for patients who have struggled with dentures. If you have a mouth freed of gum disease and exhibit excellent bone volume, you can enjoy a comfortable, natural-looking denture solution that is anchored in place without interrupting speech, taste, or eating.
- Full-Mouth Dental Implants: The most ambitious form of multiple-teeth dental implants come in the form of full-mouth dental implants. This is when a patient is missing all their teeth on the top and bottom of the mouth. This condition is highly problematic and will only get worse over time without intervention. It will take time to plan out a successful plan to get the right number of dental implants, allow time for healing, and create a beautiful smile. In some cases, upper and lower dental implants are placed at the same time. Other patients will have to wait for the upper surgical areas to heal before the bottom teeth can be addressed. Everyone is different, but your Philadelphia dentist is determine to turn your toothless smile into a permanent, gorgeous smile.
