Multiple Teeth Options
If all of your upper or lower teeth have gone missing, Lifetime Teeth Today expert oral surgeons may use multiple dental implants to successfully replace them. Multiple dental implants are used to provide additional strength and stability to dentures. Traditional dentures may eventually become unstable and prone to movement along the gums – this is mainly the result of bone loss. Dental implants provide added support to both the bone as well as the dentures. With dental implants, dentures can have much more stability and a significantly reduced chance of slipping, ultimately feeling more like natural teeth.
If you have several teeth missing that are together, it may not be necessary to replace each missing tooth with an implant. The titanium implants are very strong, and 2 implants can be used to bridge three or four teeth. This is a far better option then grinding down healthy teeth to create a bridge support; those supports often fail over time, and the comprimised teeth must also be replaced leaving a gap so large that the only alternative is an uncomfortable partial. Dr. Trevisani will take a 3-dimensional scan of your teeth and bone, and let you know all of the options available to you. Any time you can avoid destroying healthy teeth, you will save money in the long run.
