Can You Replace More Than One Missing Tooth with Dental Implants?
One of the benefits of choosing dental implants in our Lake Worth, FL dental office is that we can replace a single missing tooth or a full arch of teeth with our Done in One™ treatment solution.
Done in One™ is similar to All-on-4 and Teeth in a Day.
Single Dental Implants
A missing tooth leaves a gap in your smile that causes more pressing concerns than just the cosmetics of missing teeth. When a tooth no longer exists, and the bone no longer receives the forces of chewing, it can cause the underlying bone to deteriorate. Your teeth and bone have a dependent relationship.
In addition to bone loss, a gap left in the smile allows the teeth to tilt and shift toward the gap, much like a missing fence post causes the fence to become unstable.
Dental implants replace the entire tooth – including the root. That means your dental implants simulate a tooth in every possible way and supports the underlying bone while hold teeth in line.
Single dental implants are easy to care for. You can brush and floss them normally.
Replacing Multiple Teeth with Dental Implants
You can certainly replace an entire arch of missing teeth with single dental implants if you have enough healthy underlying bone. Unfortunately, tooth loss typically occurs over the course of many years, giving the bone plenty of time to begin to deteriorate. Our Done in One™ full-arch tooth replacement system combines the stability of dental implants with the ease and affordability of bridges and dentures.
After we complete the evaluation and planning process, we will remove any remaining diseased teeth and place 5-6 dental implants per arch. In as little as 48 hours, we will place a full arch of teeth to the implant anchors, which are designed just for you.
The replacement teeth are easier to adjust to and allow you to taste your food better than traditional dentures.
