Multiple Tooth Replacements
Multiple missing teeth can be replaced by placing individual implant for individual missing tooth or can reduce the number of implants by making it into implant supported bridge.
Molars are large, multi-rooted teeth which perform the essential function of chewing. When one or more molars are lost a lot of pressure is applied to the front teeth that are not equipped to perform the grinding function. This makes multiple teeth replacement a necessity.
Implant supported replacement is always superior than other replacement options
They arrest bone deterioration process
Facial integrity is well-maintained
Gum-line is intact
Natural Chewing capacity is restored
Adjacent teeth are preserved and no need of grinding them
They look and feel like natural teeth.
Dental Implant is permanent
At dental implant studio, jayanagar, Bangalore we are equipped with all the sizes of implants any time sothat we don’t need to order for each case.
Dr.Sudhakar Reddy customizes patient’s needs for replacement of multiple missing teeth either by two stage or by single stage depends on patients need and depends on other conditions like available bone, need of additional procedures etc.
First stage is placing dental implants in the jaw with less discomfort as possible
Maintaining waiting time of about 3 – 6 months time frame (3 months for lower jaw teeth and 6 months for upper jaw teeth) to bond with bone.
Temporary immediate teeth replacement option can be considered if involved teeth are in esthetic areas like front teeth.
The implants are then uncovered and extensions attached after stipulated time frame.
After a week gap, permanent teeth will be made as a bridge or individual depends on the need.
The system uses placing implants and fixing abutments (extensions) too
Replacement temporary acrylic teeth for 3-4 months and replace it with permanent teeth after that.
Advise the patient not to chew hard food for 3-6 months of healing period and it is good for replacing multiple front teeth so that patient will have fixed temporary teeth until the waiting time without having need to remove every night.
