Multiple Tooth Replacement
Multiple Teeth Replacement Options At Kent Smile Studio, Maidstone & Chatham
Here at our local dental practices we offer various multiple teeth replacement options in order to accommodate each individual patient's needs.
Some people may require one singular dental implant, whereas others may need several in order to replace several missing teeth. This may be to improve the aesthetics of a smile, in cases where teeth towards the front of the mouth are missing. Or it may be to improve the quality of the use of the mouth, such as when teeth towards the back of the mouth are missing.
Although the teeth at the back of the mouth are not visible, they are incredibly important and help us not only enjoy our food, but grind it down to make it digestible. When teeth at the back of the mouth are missing, teeth towards the front then have to compensate and do the job of grinding food. The front teeth are not designed to withstand this kind of use, which means they can become damaged, wear down and in extreme cases they may even break. As well as forcing the front teeth to break down food, missing back teeth can also cause issues with the jaw because the bite is uneven.
Dental Implants Can Help You Regain Full Aesthetics And Practical Use Of Your Teeth
When several teeth need replacing, dental implants are a fantastic option because they are strong, secure and last a very long time. Often the implants will be secured, left to heal and then a realistic feeling and looking crown will be placed for each missing tooth. Here at Kent Smile Studio we can achieve this in one session, or several depending on your individual preferences and suitability.
A high number of teeth can be replaced using single dental implants, however, if the majority of teeth are missing from the mouth, a bridge can be used which only needs a few implants to hold it securely. We will always suggest using as few dental implants as possible in order to keep the procedure as efficient and cost effective as it possibly can be.
All On 4
It is possible for us to replace a full arch of teeth in one single session using a procedure called 'All on 4'. This procedure enables us to place 4 dental implants which will then hold a bridge securely in place. This procedure enables patients to leave our clinic with a new set of teeth after just a few hours. We do also offer a similar procedure which uses 'mini' implants; often used to create more security and stability for dentures.
