Multiple Teeth Implant
We’re going to be honest here. A lot of people - over 120 million - have lost at least one tooth. A lot of people who have lost at least one tooth gripe that they are missing teeth. While one tooth is a pain when you lose it, losing two or more teeth is a much larger problem. When you lose more than one tooth, you may not be able to smile. Eating your favorite foods may be a problem as well. You could have trouble smiling, laughing, and singing in public may be hard. We understand that you want to be able to do all the things you used to do when you had all your teeth. If you have lost your teeth, Brush & Floss Dental Center can help. Let us take some time to tell you about multiple tooth implants.
Why Do I Need a Multiple Teeth Implant?
People have many different reasons for wanting to get multiple tooth implants. Some people get multiple tooth implants because they want to look their best, and they don’t like the way their smile looks without implants. There are other reasons that people want to get multiple tooth implants. Some people want to get multiple tooth implants because they have trouble chewing their food. Other people choose to do implants because there is pain in their jaws or in their remaining teeth. Sometimes people get implants to correct their bites because their teeth have shifted. Implants can also be a solution for people whose teeth are crooked or hard to clean because some teeth are missing.
One of the most important reasons people get their teeth replaced is because they want to keep their jawbone or jawline healthy. If you have lost multiple teeth, your jawbone might continue to lose bone mass or experience jaw and gum resorption. Eventually, your face shape could change because of your missing teeth. Unlike, dentures, implants help prevent bone loss by stimulating the jawbone.

What Happens During a Multiple Teeth Implant?
When we decide to do a multiple tooth implant, the first step is to check the area for problems. The area where your tooth is going needs to be free of the remaining tooth pieces, tooth roots, as well as infection or inflamed gums. We may have to wait to begin an implant procedure if you have inflamed tissue. When the area is free of problems, we will then drill holes to place screws. Your implants screw right into your jawbone to attach the implant directly to your jawbone. The more teeth we are replacing, the more anchor points we need to make to place screws into your jawbone. There are multiple tooth implants that can be finished quickly, but other multiple tooth implants take a little longer. It also depends where your implant is in your mouth.
Once we place the screws in your mouth, we wait for the tissues to heal. Then, we can place the prosthetic teeth on top of the screws we placed, so that your implant teeth look like your natural teeth. The implants are permanent, and no one will ever know you have them - except you.
