Multiple Tooth Dental Implants
Las Vegas, NV
For millions of people with damaged or missing teeth, dental implants have turned out to be a long term and effective solution. Patients who have faced trauma, injury, decay, or other underlying health issues – damaged teeth can plague anyone. Depending on your situation, a dental surgeon may choose to recommend a few possibilities.
No matter what type of implant you choose, the end result is more or less the same. One is called an endosteal implant, in which a surgeon will insert the implant right into the jawbone of the patient. On the other hand, subperiosteal implants are directly placed into the gumline, however this treatment is only recommended to patients with adequate bone density. If you’d like to understand how multiple teeth implants work, pay us a visit at Nevada Oral & Facial Surgery, and our highly trained staff would be more than happy to answer all of your questions.
Implant Supported Bridge
If you are trying to replace several damaged or missing teeth that also happen to be adjacent, an implant supported bridge might be the best solution for you. Using more than one implant as anchors of the bridge, multiple artificial teeth (crowns) can be placed into the patient's mouth at once.
Although getting single tooth implants for each individual damaged or missing tooth can yield better results, an implant-supported bridge is a more affordable option. Based on a comprehensive exam, our dental surgeons will suggest to you all the possible options, so you can make an informed choice.
All-on-4® Treatment Concept
It is possible for patients now to do a full jaw restoration with the help of the All-on-4. In this procedure, a full set of removable dentures is placed on the jaw using only four implants, thus the name All-on-4. Unlike conventional dentures, these are fixed with the help of titanium screws and cannot be removed without the intervention of a dental surgeon.
A dental care provider at our practice will evaluate your case based on a comprehensive oral examination to determine if you are a candidate for All-on-4. This is an optimum solution for reconstructing both the upper and lower jaw as dental implants are reliable and long lasting.
Benefits of Multiple Tooth Implants
A patient with several missing or damaged teeth can regain their ability to eat whatever they want with the help of multiple tooth implants. Unlike conventional methods of restoring missing teeth, multiple tooth implants are permanent, robust, and do not need to be removed for cleaning. It is just as easy to care for them as it is with natural teeth.
Being a biocompatible material, patients do not have to worry about their body rejecting the titanium implants. Once fused with the jawbone, they act as anchors for the replacement teeth. This reduces any chances of slippage and in most cases patients do not have to go to their dentist for revaluation.
Whether you have been dealing with missing teeth for a month or few years, a dental care provider might recommend getting a multiple tooth implant. If you or a family member are interested in restoring more than one damaged or missing tooth, feel free to contact Nevada Oral & Facial Surgery at (702) 329-7554. We look forward to hearing from you!
