Missing teeth can be devastating for many patients. Lost teeth can be embarrassing, especially in the front of the mouth. Missing teeth can also harm your health, increasing the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss. Dr. Dhara Patel offers several solutions for patients with many missing teeth. Her practice, Best Dental Spa, is in Hoffman Estates, IL, and provides full dental implant services using multiple dental implants.
We use CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) to plan and place dental implants precisely. This innovative dental technology provides highly accurate 3-D images of your mouth. Modern technology like CBCT allows us to ensure smooth treatment and lasting results.
Why Choose Multiple Dental Implants in Hoffman Estates, IL?
If you consider dental implants to restore your smile, you may wonder if multiple implants are the best option. Implant-supported dental restorations function like natural 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 they will be more durable than traditional multiple teeth replacement options.
The implants will replace teeth roots, halting 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. With implants, you don’t have to experience slipping dentures. You’re more in control of your bite.
- Multiple implants can provide a more natural look and feel. These dental implants can support a dental prosthesis (such as a denture or bridge) in a way that more closely resembles your natural teeth. This is because implants restore teeth at the root.
- 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. This can help to prevent wear and damage to your restoration. Often, you will have an easier time pronouncing words and speaking clearly with implant restorations.
Dental implants are the gold standard for replacing missing teeth because of their durability and function. While receiving implants takes some initial investment and time, the results are worth it.
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. Choosing this tooth replacement option is a huge financial decision. However, no other solution will deliver this level of superior results.
Replacing both arches of teeth with dental implant-supported dentures can cost 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.
Using CBCT For Dental Implants
CBCT scans are a valuable tool we use to plan implant treatment precisely. These scans are essential for patients missing multiple permanent teeth. When we take CBCT scans, we can view the teeth, gums, and jaw bones. Our dentist can see your bone density to plan where to place your implants.
Once we examine your scans, we can understand the pretreatments you need to prepare for implant treatment. Common pretreatments can include bone grafting. If you do not have enough jaw bone to support the implants, we may need to provide you with healthier jaw bone.
Sometimes, we may remove severely damaged or infected teeth before placing implants. Some patients may also need gum disease treatment. We can provide all of these treatments in our office.
Types of Multiple Dental Implants in Hoffman Estates, IL
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. Dr. Patel may also recommend pretreatment to ensure you are a good implant candidate. 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 missing teeth in a row 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. But it does not require natural teeth to anchor it in place. We can screw or cement the bridge to at least two or more dental implants. We don’t have to prepare natural, healthy teeth for dental crowns. This will help save your natural tooth structure.
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 four to eight dental implants to support 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 a row of missing teeth since implants help avoid bone loss. Avoiding bone loss will help hold your face’s natural shape and structure. It will also support your bite strength and restore your mouth to full function. Facial sagging and bite problems are common among patients with missing teeth. We can reverse these problems with implants.
