Multiple Implants


What Are multiple implants?

You’ve been missing a tooth for years, and you’re tired of living with the gap in your smile or your dentures falling out.
Imagine having a set of teeth that look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. With multiple dental implants from South Lake Smiles, you’ll be able to eat what you want without worrying about your dentures coming loose or falling out.
And since they are placed in the jawbone instead of the gums, there is no chance of loosening, unlike with wearing traditional dentures, and they do not rely on the adjacent teeth for support, minimising the risk of damaging your healthy teeth and improving your oral health.

If you’re looking for multiple implants, come visit us today! We’ll discuss all your options with you and help find the best solution for your needs. South Lake Smiles offers single dental implant procedures at affordable prices, and we offer free consultations, so call us today!

The Benefits of Multiple Implants

Multiple dental implants provide a wide range of advantages over other dental restorations.

1.) They are not harmful to the human body and do not rely on other teeth

Dental implants are made of biocompatible materials like titanium. The body has a lower risk of rejection, and implant posts are unlikely to be infected. As a result, the implant remains securely attached to the bone. When a multiple tooth implant is bonded, it serves as an anchor or foundation for the dentist to place artificial teeth on.

2.) It is easier to keep clean

Multiple implants are simpler to keep clean. Unlike dentures, which you need to remove to clean, multiple implants are inserted underneath, so you just need to brush your artificial teeth, especially around where the implants are, just like your original teeth.
Of course, good dental hygiene habits are an important part of maintaining oral health. As a result, we advise that you see your dentist regularly for professional cleaning and so they can monitor your implants.

3.) It preserves the jawbone

Your body can detect if the bone does not function to support teeth. Your jawbone will deteriorate without replacing your extracted teeth or experiencing tooth loss.
Multiple implants will act like your natural tooth root, allowing the jawbone to simulate again and prevent the risk of bone loss.

4.) Safe procedure to replace tooth roots

Long-term success rates for multiple dental implants are high. The success rate could be anywhere from 95% to 99%. Regular dental cleanings are recommended. As a result, the implants are expected to last longer. In order to maintain efficient results and your oral health, we also advise that you avoid smoking and practise proper oral hygiene habits.

5.) Same function with natural teeth

The chewing and biting forces of multiple implants are comparable to those of natural teeth. As well as supporting a variety of dental restorations, they perform and look like natural teeth. In most cases, it is hard to tell the difference between implanted and natural teeth.

6.) They prevent further problems.

frequently asked questions about multiple implants

Multiple implants are often recommended by dental professionals as tooth replacements. They are generally safe procedures with a high success rate, supported by studies. Some indications that you need dental implants are the following:

  • You have healthy and sufficient gums.
  • You have a good dental hygiene routine.
  • You are a non-smoker or willing to drop the habit of smoking and using tobacco products.
  • You have patience and are committed to the entire process. Since dental implants may take six to one year to be completed.
  • You have several missing teeth.
  • You have healthy oral tissues.
  • If you have no health conditions that prevent you from undergoing surgery or if you don’t have any health issues that could interfere with bone healing.
  • If you are unable to wear conventional dentures.
  • If you need to improve your speech.

Initial appointment. Your dentist will examine your oral health during the initial visit to see if you are a good candidate for multiple implants. A typical examination includes a clinical assessment as well as advanced digital imaging. Your dental professional may also ask about your medical history.

Bone graft. If you have thin or weak bone, we may suggest a bone graft to provide a stable foundation and ensure stability. A sinus lift is performed when the upper jaw has lost bone height and the sinuses are too close to the jaw. These procedures may require a few weeks of healing time before the implants are placed.

Prior to the implant surgery. We will make sure you are comfortable during the entire operation. The dentist will administer anaesthesia.

Implant placement. The dentist will make an incision to the gums to expose the bone. Then, they will drill a hole to place the metal post or the implant, which aligns with the tooth root. Sutures will next be used to seal the incision and promote healing. It also requires four to six months to recover from surgery.

Osseointegration. During your recovery period, the entire time will allow the process of osseointegration. The jawbone grows around the implant once it is placed in it. After that, the implant dissolves into the gum line. Depending on the circumstances, this process can take anywhere from three to nine months.

Abutment placement. Once your implant is secure enough, your dentist will attach an abutment to it. This device secures the implant to the crown.

Restoration. The dentist will make a mould of your teeth after your gums have healed completely and take impressions to create the crown. To place the replacement tooth in your mouth, your jaw bone must be strong and firm enough to support it and resist biting force.

Although most dental restorations need healthy oral tissue, gums, and a strong jawbone. You may still receive multiple implants if you have weakened bones.

The dentist will determine the best technique for you to ensure the effectiveness of the implants. A bone graft may be necessary if your jawbone is too soft or not thick enough to support a dental implant. Because of the pressure exerted by chewing, your bone exerts a lot of pressure, and if it cannot support the implant, the surgery is likely to fail. The implant can have a better foundation with bone grafting.

Bone grafts are only recommended if your bone structure is too thin or weak. The dentist will perform the necessary measures to determine this concern.

For older adults. One of the risk factors for dental implants is age. One study discussed that the success of dental implants still varies depending on the health condition and the reserved capacity of the jawbone and soft tissues. The healing period for seniors (or older patients) may take longer than in younger age brackets. They also show that getting older does not predict implant failure alone.

For patients who are medically compromised. If you have any medical conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, cancer, etc., the approval of your healthcare provider is necessary prior to the implant procedure. This will guarantee that no further complications are at high risk. One study discussed that the success of implants among individuals with diabetes and osteoporosis is fairly similar to the general population.

For teenagers. Teenagers may not be suitable for dental implants as their jaws and faces are still growing. Implant success is strongly influenced by bone density, and the jaws of teens still need more time to grow.
