Multiple Tooth Implants
Lillybrook Dental is your local Kallangur dentist restoring smiles with multiple tooth implants
Multiple tooth implants can help people who are missing several teeth. Lillybrook Dental works with patients to place natural teeth and tooth roots with multiple tooth implants. More than a dental treatment, we understand the important transformation implant dentistry provides to people.
Are multiple tooth implants better than dental bridges?
When considering your options for replacing multiple teeth, people often weigh up the benefits of a dental bridge or partial denture with those associated with multiple tooth dental implants. Our experience shows multiple tooth implants have some advantages over the alternatives:
- Less impact on surrounding teeth because multiple tooth implants do not rely on their support
- Partial tooth root restoration through placement of the implant in the jaw, allowing the bone to integrate and be preserved.
- Fixed to the bone, preventing movement in the way partial dentures do
- Functional and visually appealing.
Placement of multiple tooth implants occur over several steps:
Step 1 – The base of the implants (which are a small titanium fixture) are surgically placed into the jaw. Over a period of between two and six months, the titanium fixtures must bond to ensure they are strong enough for the artificial teeth.
Step 2 – In some cases, and depending on the system used, an extension may be required for the implants.
Step 3 – The final step involves placement of crowns on the tooth implants. These are held in place with an abutment.
Dental implants enjoy a high success rate relative to other implanted surgical devices. The team at Lillybrook Dental love working with people to restore their confidence in the ability to perform everyday functions, like bite, chew and smile.
