Multiple Teeth Replacement
Missing several teeth can be uncomfortable and embarrassing, but with dental implants you can finally feel more confident about your smile. Not only is the process painless but implants look and feel natural as well. Through the years numerous methods have emerged but the techniques used here at Lifetime Dental in Rancho Cucamonga are among the safest and most practical.
Just like a single tooth replacement, replacing multiple teeth is a straightforward process. When the procedure is complete your teeth will look and feel natural. What’s great about implants is that they don’t require support from neighboring teeth unlike with removable partial dentures and fixed bridges, which can eventually damage or weaken your other healthy teeth.
The process for replacing multiple teeth is not that different from replacing a single tooth. The general steps are as follows:
- Just like with single tooth replacements, it begins placing the implants in your jawbone. The implants resemble cylinders or screws. It might take anywhere from 8 weeks to six months for the bone and the implant to fuse together so it can serve as anchor for your replacement teeth. During a single tooth replacement procedure, Dr. M Afzali may provide temporary replacements, while your implant heals and fuses with the jawbone. The same may be done for multiple teeth replacement.
- The final step is attaching your new set of teeth onto the abutments. Once that is done, dental crowns will be placed over your implants/abutments and they will be shaped and polished to look like the rest of your teeth.
Multiple teeth replacement procedures have improved greatly over the years. Not only are the prosthetic teeth natural looking, but they are designed to last and won’t feel artificial at all.
If you require several teeth replacements, Dr. Afzali can recommend options that you can choose from and create a customized plan to suit your needs.
