Has your oral health declined so much that you’re facing tooth loss of one more teeth? Or maybe you’re a victim of a dental accident and knocked several teeth loose, what’s next? Dental implants in Suffern could be the solution that works best for you! Our dental professionals at Cosmetic Dentistry Associates are going to discuss how many teeth just a few dental implants can replace. It may seem impossible to do now, but before you know it, you’ll totally forget about missing any teeth!
Dental Implants Dramatically Improve Declining Oral Health
Dental implants are one of the best ways to replace missing teeth. This restorative option offers unique benefits that most traditional replacement options can’t offer.
It’s important to keep all of your teeth not just for aesthetics—but the insides of your teeth stimulate your jawbone. This keeps your mouth and face strong, full, and healthy. Without the stimulation of healthy tooth roots, patients experience jaw bone deterioration over time, leading to an increased risk of additional tooth loss and a premature aging facial appearance. Thankfully, dental implants imitate all parts of your tooth. This stimulates your jawbone and promotes new growth.
You can replace a single tooth with dental implants!
If a patient needs to replace a single tooth, they can depend on a dental implant to do so. During this procedure, your biocompatible titanium implant post will be placed within your jaw. Once it heals and fuses with your body during a process known as osseointegration, your dentist in Suffern will attach an abutment and beautiful dental prosthetic (the visual portion). You will have a tooth that looks and functions just like your natural teeth in no time.
Can I replace two, three, or four consecutive teeth?
Even though you may need two teeth to be replaced, this dental problem can be simply solved with still a single dental implant. The only difference is that two prosthetics will be attached (two tooth-colored crowns also known as a bridge) to fill the gap. In the case that you have two missing teeth that are not close to each other, you will need to get two separate dental implants.
This same process can be applied if you’re missing three or four consecutive teeth. The only difference is that two implant posts will need to be placed on both ends of the gap. This way, your dental bridge will be stabilized on both sides with the help of supporting neighboring teeth.
What if I’m missing more teeth sporadically?
If you’re missing teeth throughout your mouth but not consecutively, you can replace them with a personalized partial denture. This dental prosthetic can fit in between your permanent teeth as if it were the perfect puzzle piece to your smile. Your dental implant posts will act as anchors to hold your denture in place.
Can I replace an entire arch of teeth?
Cosmetic Dentistry Associates can also securely retain a custom full denture to restore an arch of missing teeth. Usually, you would have to deal with certain inconveniences with full sets of dentures like slippage, jaw bone deterioration, and unpleasant adhesives. But with dental implants, they will simply snap onto your implant posts.
