Multiple Teeth Implant
Effects of Losing Multiple Teeth
Losing several teeth has many significant effects on your entire life.
What Is a Multiple Tooth Implant?
A multiple tooth implant is a treatment that uses dental implants to provide support for a section of replacement teeth. It is typically used to replace two or more consecutive missing teeth. Dental implants consist of 3 components.
How Is a Multiple Tooth Implant Placed?
Placing a multiple tooth implant requires surgery. Surgery is performed under a local anesthetic and sedation. The anesthetic ensures that you do not feel any pain while sedation helps you to feel relaxed and calm. When we are ready to begin, we create small incisions in your gum tissue. Next, we drill small holes into your jawbone and place the implant posts directly inside. Your gums are sutured closed around the posts, and temporary teeth are placed.
Healing after your multiple tooth implant placement can take several weeks to several months. Your bone gradually fuses to the posts during this time. Several follow up appointments allow us to monitor your progress, making sure that you are healing properly and there are no issues. When you have fully healed, the temporary teeth are removed, and the abutments are placed on the posts. We then take an impression of your mouth. The impression is used to design and create your replacement teeth, which are secured into place with small screws.
