Multiple Tooth Implants

Multiple Tooth Implants

Multiple tooth implants may be placed if you need or desire to permanently replace an extracted or lost tooth. Titanium implant bases are placed into the jawbone to replace the job of the tooth roots. We allow a period of time to allow for the jawbone to heal over the bases before fitting for a crown. Next, abutments are screwed into the bases of the implants to allow crowns to be attached. Finally, custom fabricated crowns are placed over the abutments and will function like a real tooth.

Full Arch Implants

If you have slipping dentures and are tired of being self-conscious about the thought of losing them at an inopportune moment, a full arch implant might be the solution for you. Dental implants that can be placed to accept a full arch of teeth. This is done by strategically placing implants along the upper or lower jaw and attaching a denture-like attachment over abutments on the implant posts. Once placed, a full arch using implants will feel and perform like natural teeth. You will be able to chew with confidence and never have to worry again about losing your dentures.

Teeth In A Day

The newest innovation in tooth replacement is the Teeth-in-a-Day treatment. This is considered a major improvement over dentures and even regular dental implants. With Teeth-in-a-Day, patients can have a new set of dental implants in a single appointment. There are no multiple office visits and no extended healing period. Patients literally walk out with a new set of fully functioning implants after one short visit.

With dentures, patients often complain of discomfort and difficulty performing everyday tasks. Dentures are not held securely and often slip around in the mouth. This can make it difficult to eat or speak clearly and often causes embarrassing moments. Even worse is that dentures allow for bone and tissue deterioration. Over time your gums and jawbone will begin to wear away due to a lack of stimulation. The result is an alteration in the facial structure, which can increase signs of aging. For these reasons, dental implants are considered an improvement over dentures.

While dental implants are preferable to dentures, they still have their drawbacks. Mainly, the long waiting period between when they are put in place and when they can be used. There is a four to six month period where the implants become integrated with the jawbone. This can cause difficulty with some patients. However, with Teeth-in-a-Day, there is no waiting period. Surgery takes no longer than a few hours and you have a new fully functioning set of teeth that day.

Teeth-in-a-Day is a great option for patients who do not like dentures or who cannot wait six months for a new tooth. Unlike with dentures, Teeth-in-a-Day provide patients with replacements that both look and feel natural.
