Multiple Tooth Implants
Spring Hill, FL
As a child, a tooth falling out is often just another sign of growing up. It will soon be naturally replaced by another set of teeth, and in general, it is considered normal. The same thing may not be said for adults, however, because losing an adult tooth is permanent. Missing teeth can affect us in our daily routines, and it can also cause dental issues when not replaced immediately. These problems can be fixed by multiple tooth implants.
Dental Implants and How They Can Help
Missing teeth can cause quite a number of issues in our daily life. These include speech impairment, difficulty chewing, and even a lack of confidence when facing others. With dental implants, all of these problems can be fixed, and you no longer have to struggle in silence. A dental implant is a replacement for missing, broken, or decaying teeth. A screw-like titanium metal post will be inserted into your jawbone, and it will act as the root where the abutment and the new teeth will be placed after a few months of healing.
Implants can help improve your oral health and deal with existing dental issues. Aside from bringing back your chewing strength, normal speech, and confidence to smile, dental implants can also help prevent other potential problems that missing teeth can cause. It can help keep you from experiencing gum disease and bone loss. Furthermore, they are easy to care for. They can also help keep adjacent teeth stable and prevent premature aging of the face, which can be caused by missing teeth.
Should You Get a Multiple Tooth Implant?
If you have more than two missing adult teeth that you want to be replaced, then you should get a multiple tooth implant. However, if you have only one tooth missing, a single tooth implant is also available. If you have a broken or decaying tooth, it can also be replaced by dental implants. Having good gums and bone density is essential before proceeding with the surgery. Some patients may need to go through bone grafting before the placement of the implants.
Three Most Common Types of Dental Implants
When restoring a patient’s smile, there are three kinds of dental implants we may utilize. These are endosteal implants, subperiosteal implants, and zygomatic implants. The first is endosteal, which is the most commonly utilized of the three. In this procedure, the implant is placed in the bone. It is best suited for patients with a healthy jawbone. The second one is subperiosteal, where the implant is placed on top of the bone and is not fixed into the jawbone. The third and the most complicated is zygomatic, where the implant is placed in the cheekbone rather than the jawbone.
Getting dental implants for your missing teeth can restore your smile, enable natural speech, and make it easier to eat your favorite foods. For those of you who have one or more missing teeth that need to be replaced, a multiple tooth implant can help.
