If you are looking for an experienced implant dentist to replace multiple teeth, Cosmetic Dentistry Associates in Pomona, NY, has you covered. We are home to Dr. Peter Auster and Dr. Frances Tang, both of whom possess advanced training in dental implants.
Multiple dental implants are a much different treatment than a single dental implant. They can be customized to accommodate two missing teeth or an entire mouth of missing teeth as well as everything in between.
Replacing Teeth with Multiple Dental Implants
There are many reasons to replace your missing teeth with dental implants, including many health reasons. Missing teeth can lead to bone loss in the jaw and cause the remaining teeth to shift out of place. It can also lead to gum disease and bad breath. People who have gaps in their smiles also avoid smiling and talking. All of these factors can affect a person’s overall well-being and health.
Multiple Dental Implants Treatment Options in Pomona, NY
For many missing teeth, our dental team will create a treatment plan using multiple dental implants to replace them. There are several restorations they can use depending on how many teeth you are missing and where they are located.
Denture Implants – For edentulous patients, a denture will be used on the upper and lower jaw. Instead of the denture resting on the gums, it will be held in place by dental implants. Traditional dentures are known to move around in the mouth and cause problems. Using implants will stabilize the restoration and make it more durable.
Implant Supported Bridge – Patients missing several consecutive teeth will have a dental bridge placed. Using a bridge with implants is better for your remaining teeth. They will not have to be reduced to make room for the bridge. The bridge will only be used to fill in the gap and does not require damaging the remaining healthy teeth.
Multiple Dental Implants FAQs
How many dental implants will I need to secure my restoration?
This will depend on the number of teeth you are missing. For several consecutive missing teeth, you will need at least two dental implants to support a dental bridge. If you are missing an entire row of teeth, two to four dental implants is sufficient enough to secure the denture. However, some patients may benefit from having six to eight dental implants.
I currently wear a traditional denture. Can I switch to denture implants?
Yes! We have many patients that have decided traditional dentures are not working out for them. It is never too late to switch to denture implants. However, if there is not enough bone density to support the implants, you may need to undergo a bone graft.
Will multiple dental implants stop bone loss?
Yes! That is one of the greatest benefits of choosing dental implants to replace your missing teeth. Implants will successfully stop the bone resorption process by replacing the missing teeth roots.
