Dental Implants For Multiple Missing Teeth
At Smile Hub Dental Clinic in Bayside Medical Centre we help patients plan their dental implant treatment for multiple missing teeth. Have you lost several teeth due to tooth decay, an accident or dental injury? If you have a few teeth missing it can negatively affect you eating, speaking and smiling. You may feel slightly embarrassed about your missing teeth. It is important to prevent neighbouring teeth moving into the spaces where the teeth have been extracted as this will create crooked teeth.
Multiple missing teeth result in gaps in your mouth which can be restored using a partial denture which is removable or a fixed bridge. However, most patients want a fixed dental solution which doesn’t involve preparation neighbouring teeth. Dental implants for restoring gaps in your mouth look and feel like you’re missing teeth but also help to preserve your jawbone.
If you’re missing multiple teeth you may not need as many implants as replacement teeth. One implant can support more than one tooth. In some cases, two implants can hold several prosthetic teeth. Please call Smile Hub Dental Clinic today in Bayside Medical Centre, and we can discuss in detail your dental treatment options including all associated costs and the number of treatment visits necessary.
