Multiple Teeth Replacement with Dental Implants
Missing multiple teeth can be chaotic in your mouth. It can affect your ability to chew, speak and can lead to teeth shifting and problems in your jaw. At Cameo Dental Specialists, we can restore your function and vastly increase your oral health by restoring your teeth. If you have considered various dental prosthetics, such as a bridge, partial denture or even a full denture, we want to show you a system that may incorporate those devices, but in a considerably more comfortable and usable way. Following an examination, a specialist at Cameo, can help you design a treatment plan that is customized to fit your needs and increase your oral health. Blending dental implants with other prosthetics, or using a mouthful of implants, is the closest in function and feel to your natural teeth.
I have a denture, is that enough?When a patient has lost multiple teeth in a single arch, their options often include a partial or full denture. Either of these prosthetics will assist in increasing your ability to chew food and speak, but the extent will be limited. What many patients do not realize is the level of shrinkage their jawbone will experience the loss of so many teeth. Your teeth provide the exercise and stimulation that your jawbone needs to stay healthy. With teeth missing, those spots of bone are no longer being exercised, even when the patient is wearing a denture. Quite rapidly, the bone will shrink as it resorbs due to what it perceives is the lack of use. The patient will continually experience problems with their denture device needing to be resized. A denture will never feel truly like your own teeth, and it will limit your food choices. Placing a few dental implants can make a significant difference to your bone health, and to your function.
How do dental implants work?A dental implant is a metal post that we surgically place into your jawbone. Once the implant has healed, it is permanently in place and can serve as a strong anchor. In some cases, we may use this anchor to place a dental crown for a single tooth replacement, or we can use it to anchor a dental prosthetic such as a bridge, partial denture, or full denture. Using 3-6 dental implants, we can even anchor your existing denture on each arch.
Dental implants serve more function than just to anchor your dental appliance; they will provide the points of contact that your jaw needs to stay exercised and stimulated. Implants will help keep your jawbone healthy.
Dental implants come in a variety of widths, lengths, and for varying procedures. We have options for every patient and can help medically delicate patients get the work they need to be done. Options such as the All-on-4® Treatment Concept are available for same day implant retained dentures. The best way to know your options, and how we can help is to schedule an appointment with a specialist at Cameo.
