Multiple Tooth Implants
Dentist Mason, OH
Everyone experiences losing a tooth or two once in their lifetime, especially during childhood. While tooth loss is a common occurrence, it can still cause issues to those who are affected by it. Having gapped teeth can make it hard for someone to smile with confidence, eat with ease, and speak clearly. It can also cause bone loss and gum disease when neglected. For those of you who are missing one or several permanent adult teeth, you can get multiple tooth implants from us here at Fox Dental Excellence.
What is a Multiple Tooth Implant?
A dental implant is a replacement for missing, damaged, or decaying teeth, for people that have suffered multiple tooth loss. Dental implants are screw-like titanium metal posts that will be placed in your jaw, under the influence of local anesthesia. The healing process usually takes anywhere between two to six months depending on the severity of the case. A tooth implant is designed to act and function just like natural teeth, which can last a lifetime and do not require heavy maintenance.
Advantages of Getting Multiple Tooth Implants
Getting multiple tooth implants has many advantages, especially for someone who lost a permanent adult tooth. It can bring back your smile and give you a confidence boost in your daily social interactions, it can also improve your speech. It can also restore normal eating habits which you may have lost as a result of acute pain, by reinstating maximum chewing power in your teeth. Dental implants can also keep you from contracting possible gum diseases due to missing teeth.
Implants behave like natural teeth, both in terms of function and aesthetics. They are easy to clean and do not require heavy maintenance and can last a lifetime if given proper care. Missing teeth can cause bone loss when overlooked and having tooth implants can prevent this from happening. It can also help you curb signs of premature aging and facial sagging caused by missing teeth. Cavities don’t have any effect on artificial teeth, so that is one less thing you will have to worry about.
Are You a Candidate for Multiple Tooth Implants?
If you have several missing teeth, multiple tooth implants are the perfect solution for you. For those who have one missing tooth, a single tooth implant is an economical and safe choice. If you are experiencing a harder time eating normally, smiling in front of others, speaking words clearly, or have pain around the gumline, getting implants may help you with these. It's crucial to have healthy gums before proceeding with the surgery as dental implants are placed in the gums. A good bone graft in the jaw can also help extend support for the implants.
Tooth loss is common, but it does not mean that you have to struggle with the issues caused by it. Missing teeth can be fixed by multiple tooth implants.
