Need more than one implant?
Multiple implants are one of the most recognised and recommended solutions for patients suffering from several missing teeth.
This is because they permanently anchor replacement teeth, leaving patients with a new, transformed smile that is designed to match the original.
Implants provide patients with a better solution to dentures or partial dentures, which can help you avoid common complaints around discomfort and difficulty eating or speaking.
Why you should not ignore gaps in the mouth!
There are various oral health problems and consequences that can arise as a direct outcome of losing multiple teeth.
When gaps go ignored your jaw bone can recede, which cause further tooth loss and cause facial sagging.
The longer you leave gaps in your mouth the more likely you will require pre-implant procedures like sinus lifts or bone grafts to qualify for multiple implant treatment in the future.
What is a dental implant? The procedure
The implant is a titanium screw that is placed securely into the jawbone acting like an artificial tooth root.
Once healed, a crown or a bridge can hook onto the implant providing long-lasting, natural-looking results.
The procedure is straightforward, multiple implants can take anywhere from 3-5 hours to place and require no general anaesthetic.
During the healing stage, temporary teeth can be placed until the final restoration a few months later.
Once the implant and the jaw have fused together, an abutment is then applied to the implant to hold your new replacement teeth in position.
The crown or bridge is secured to the top, completing the restoration and fully replacing your missing teeth.
The colour of your crown will be carefully colour-matched by your dentist ensuring an overall improved natural appearance.
Treatment solutions for multiple missing teeth
Implant-supported crowns: Often prescribed when single teeth are missing from different parts of the mouth and you have some natural teeth positioned in between.
Implant-supported bridge: Perfect when several teeth are missing in a row next to each other. Implant-retained bridges in this case are the more affordable solution.
Multiple implants: Effectively single implants which are positioned singularly throughout the mouth – however, we can offer these at different prices.
All-on-four: This is where implants can be placed on the same day and will not require any additional procedures to make it happen. More.
How much do dental implants cost?
Implant cost FAQ
Implant dentistry is not redeemable via the NHS, they are more likely to prescribe cheaper alternatives like dentures.
Whilst you will have to check with your particular provider, insurance typically does not cover the cost of dental implants. However, as dental implants are now more recognised for their durability, insurers are beginning to recognise their quality. More.
