Replacing missing teeth with multiple dental implants
The impact of having multiple missing teeth can negatively impact your quality of life affecting your ability to chew, eat and speak. It can affect your confidence too and some people will be anxious in public especially about smiling and revealing the gaps in their teeth. Replacing missing teeth with multiple dental implants can help to restore the functionality of your teeth as well as your confidence and quality of life, enabling you to eat the foods you avoided and smile without worry.
The multiple dental implants treatment options
The process of replacing missing teeth with multiple dental implants is very much like replacing a single tooth. The main difference is that you do not have to replace each tooth with an implant, with fewer dental implants required to replace multiple teeth. For instance, if you lose three teeth which were all next to each other, these can be replaced using just two implants to fix a bridge.
The Importance of replacing missing teeth
Replacing missing teeth is important especially if you’ve lost several at the back of your mouth. When you lose several back teeth, it makes it more difficult to chew effectively. It also causes extra strain on your front teeth which can lead to further issues and potential damage to them. Multiple dental implants are required to restore functionality in some cases.
