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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a dental implant?

At Smile Hub Dental Clinic we use titanium dental implant screws which are placed into your jaw bone by highly trained dentists. This implant then fuses to the jaw bone and prevents bone deterioration. Dental implants act like natural teeth and support a dental crown, bridge or denture to enable eating and a natural smile.

What dental implant system does Smile Hub Dental Clinic use?

At Smile Hub Dental Clinic in North Dublin we use the world renowned Straumann Dental Implant system. This dental implant brand is the most medically researched dental implant system in the world. At Smile Hub Dental Clinic we know that every patient is different so every treatment is individualised. Smile Hub Dental Clinic reflect this individuality in the selection of it’s high quality dental implants for our patients. Straumann dental implants have a wide range of world class dental implants which we can match precisely to all our various patients treatment requirements.

How many teeth are you missing?

At Smile Hub Dental Clinic your dentist will assess the number of missing teeth the you have. The condition of your remaining teeth and your motivation levels will be evaluated. Your dentist may recommend an implant-supported crown/bridge, a conventional dental bridge or a removable chrome cobalt partial denture. Your dentist at Smile Hub Dental Clinic will advise you on the most predictable treatment options for your missing teeth. You can then discuss with our friendly team which option suits you best.

Can Smile Hub Dental Clinic restore my missing back tooth?

At Smile Hub Dental Clinic in Bayside Medical Centre we often recommend a dental bridge to replace a missing tooth by using the neighbouring teeth for support. The neighbouring teeth are ground down to support the bridge and a false porcelain tooth is suspended off of it. Bridges can weaken teeth over time and decrease their life-span.

 

At Smile Hub Dental Clinic a partial denture is often recommended as a removable option for replacing a missing tooth. This involves a false tooth which is placed on a plate that rests on your gums and against your neighbouring teeth. A partial denture can feel bulky and cause discomfort.

 

In Smile Hub Dental Clinic we often advise patients that dental implants are the best way to restore the function and aesthetics of missing teeth. Dental implants are screws which are placed beneath the gums which then have a porcelain crown permanently connected to the dental implant. Patient’s always comment that dental implants look, feel and function like the tooth that they lost. Dental implants are an excellent treatment option for a missing tooth or gap in the mouth when sufficient jawbone is present to place the implant screw and there is enough room for the implant crown.
