Missing teeth can be devastating for many patients. Gaps in your smile will create self-esteem issues and be bad for your health. Dr. Dhara Patel offers several solutions for patients suffering from having many missing teeth. Her practice, Best Dental Spa, is in Hoffman Estates, IL, and provides full dental implant services. We use a CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) to plan and place dental implants precisely. This innovative dental technology provides highly accurate 3-D images of your entire mouth and teeth.
Why Choose Multiple Dental Implants
If you are considering dental implants to restore your smile, you may be wondering if multiple implants are the best option for you. Implant-secured dental restorations function like real teeth. Most dentists recommend them as they are usually the best solution to replace consecutively missing teeth. Advances in dental technology have made it possible to create fake teeth that appear very similar to natural ones. So securing false teeth using dental implants means that they will be more durable than other traditional teeth replacement options.
The implants will actually replace teeth roots which will halt bone loss in the jaw. Having the next best thing to real teeth will boost your confidence and help you live a normal and healthy life. Here are some reasons why multiple implants may be the best choice for you:
- Multiple implants can provide more stability for your dental restoration. If you have multiple implants, they can support each other and resist movement better than a single implant would.
- Multiple implants can provide a more natural look and feel. Multiple dental implants can support a dental prosthesis (such as a denture or bridge) in a way that more closely resembles your natural teeth.
- Multiple implants can provide more support for chewing and speaking. If you have multiple implants, they can distribute the force of chewing and speaking more evenly, which can help to prevent damage to your restoration.
How Much Does Replacing All of your Teeth with Multiple Dental Implants Cost?
Full-mouth dental implants are an investment in your overall well-being and health. It is a huge financial decision to choose this teeth replacement option. However, no other solution will deliver this level of superior results. To replace both arches of teeth with dental implant secured dentures costs tens of thousands of dollars. The average cost is $30,000 to $40,000. However, many factors can contribute to the cost, and this quoted price is merely a starting point.
Types of Multiple Dental Implants
If you are missing teeth, Dr. Patel will examine your mouth, bone density, and overall health to determine the best treatment. She will recommend multiple dental implants and restore them with a dental bridge or denture if you qualify. We provide the following two types of dental implants to replace many consecutively missing teeth.
Implant-secured Dental Bridge
Our dentist provides traditional dental bridges to replace several consecutive missing teeth on an arch. However, Dr. Patel can also use dental implants to secure the bridge instead of using your existing teeth. The implant-secured bridge will look exactly like a traditional bridge however it does not require the use of remaining teeth to anchor it. We screw or cement the bridge to at least two or more dental implants.
A denture can replace all teeth missing from the arch. Traditional removable dentures rely on suction and sometimes adhesive to remain in place. However, Dr. Patel can use anywhere from four to eight dental implants to secure the custom-made denture. We typically call this the All-on-four procedure. To learn more about replacing an entire arch of lost teeth, see All-on-Four Implants.
Implant-secured dentures are the best option for an entire row of missing teeth, since implants help avoid bone loss. Avoiding bone loss will help hold your face’s natural shape and structure, support your bite strength, and restore your mouth back to full function.
