Multiple Tooth Implant
Ann Arbor, MI
When some teeth are lost due to an accident or poor dental hygiene, you also could lose the desire to smile. Although you should always try to save your tooth, in cases where this is not possible, placing dental implants is the best option to rebuild your smile. It is important to us that you are able to show your smile. Here at Everwell Dentistry we are pleased to offer you the best implantology services.
Why Are Multiple Tooth Implants Necessary?
You should keep in mind that dental implants have multiple functions; in addition to improving the appearance of your smile, they allow you to bite again naturally and prevent other dental health problems from developing. As a general rule, if there is nothing to prevent it, the teeth tend to move. This can cause damage to the gums, periodontal disease, malocclusion, as well as damage to aesthetics.
When a child loses one of their baby teeth before the final one is ready to come in, space maintainers are used to prevent it from dislodging. Dental implants not only manage to reconstitute the aesthetics and functionality of your smile, but they also help you maintain the position of nearby teeth, preventing them from moving and your permanent teeth from being damaged.
Is Multiple Tooth Implant Treatment Painful?
The surgical procedures for implants are very well protocolized and usually do not cause much discomfort. The vast majority of cases are done with local anesthesia, like many other dental treatments. Only the noise of the instruments and sensations of pressure in the area is perceived.
What Is The Difference Between Single And Multiple Implants?
When several adjacent teeth are missing, they do not always have to be replaced with the same number of single tooth implants. In these cases, multiple dental implants can be used. For example, if three teeth in a row are missing, then a combination of implants and crowns can be used.
If several teeth are missing, there are two options: replace them with single tooth implants or multiple tooth dental implants, or remove the remaining natural teeth and perform a complete dental implant (also called complete oral rehabilitation). Our team will guide you so together we can make the best decision for your case.
Multiple Tooth Implant Maintenance
Our team will give you detailed instructions on how to care for your new teeth. Its cleaning will be similar to the rest of the natural teeth with your toothbrush (the same with which you clean the rest of your teeth) at least two times a day or after each meal. The important thing is dedicating time to clean the teeth and gums, making it a habit that comes naturally.
Some patients may find it tedious to clean gums and interdental spaces (between crown and crown or between crown and tooth). Nevertheless, it remains an important task. To do this, apart from your usual brush, you can use additional dental hygiene tools such as interdental brushes or dental floss.
Today there are many treatment options available, such as extracting the injured tooth and placing the implant and the crown at the same time, or placing implants and fixed teeth at the same time. However, each situation must be studied before we will proceed with the most appropriate procedure.
