Multi-teeth implants are, as you might expect, are implants for multiple missing teeth.There are several dental treatment options available for multiple teeth, including
The latter being the gold standard and superior choice for replacement of multiple missing teeth.
If you’re missing multiple teeth, you may have a set of dentures or a traditional bridge to support your teeth.
Dentures can be inserted during the day to support your missing teeth and the gums which surround it. However, they must be taken out at night and cleaned regularly, or else further complications might develop, such as cavities, stomatitis and infection. Dentures also vary in their comfort and stability, and it is not uncommon for people to develop ulcers as a result.
A traditional bridge replaces a missing tooth by using support from its two neighbouring teeth. These two neighbours are reshaped to be able to support one crown each, while the missing tooth is replaced by an artificial tooth known as a pontic. The pontic is supported by an abutment and the two crowns on either side of it, creating a firm trio. While bridges are strong, the healthy bone and gum underneath it remains vulnerable to deterioration. If left unchecked, the deteriorated structures might allow the growth of bacteria, which is a risk to both the replaced tooth and its neighbours.
While traditional bridges rely on support from a pontic and two neighbouring crowns, bridges with multiple dental implants rely on the natural structures of your jawbone and gums. After your missing teeth are removed, titanium screws are inserted into your jaw, which are then attached to an abutment, a crown and finally the bridge. The result is a stronger solution which looks better, feels better, and is less prone to further tooth decay.
The whole process, from initial consultation to the insertion of the multiple dental implants, may vary between 3 to 12 months, depending on your unique medical conditions and the operation you require.
