Gain The Confidence To Smile Again With Multiple Dental Implants in Currambine

You’re missing multiple teeth, and you want to replace them with something more permanent than dentures.

Imagine having a complete set of replacement teeth that look natural and feel comfortable. Dental implants are placed in your mouth where the roots of your old teeth used to be, so they can support new crowns or bridges that are just like real teeth. Your new smile will be beautiful and natural-looking, so no one will even know you have dental implants.

If you are missing several teeth, multiple dental implants may be right for you. We don’t have to replace every single tooth with an implant if we use several implants strategically placed in different areas of the mouth. Multiple teeth implant dentistry can replace as few as two teeth or more. The choice is yours! Call us today at Smiles in Currambine for more information about how we can help you achieve a beautiful smile using multiple teeth implants.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Do you have questions about our dental services? We’re here to help! Check out the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions or browse through below for more information.

In addition to aesthetic reasons, there are other reasons why multiple missing teeth need to be replaced:

  • Each tooth works and functions in concert with the others. Missing several teeth can make it difficult for you to speak and eat. You may also develop other problems over time because of missing teeth. If you have trouble chewing your food, you may eat on one side of your mouth or eat more slowly. Your jaw and face muscles may be affected.
  • When you are missing multiple teeth, your mouth can shift, causing alterations to your facial characteristics. The extra space could potentially cause the remaining teeth to shift in order to compensate for the missing ones. Other issues can arise as a result, including dental sensitivity, trouble chewing, and teeth grinding.

In dental implant surgery, a metal post is used to replace the root of a tooth, usually made of titanium alloy, and the replacement of missing or damaged teeth with artificial teeth, usually porcelain crowns, that look and function like natural teeth. After being implanted, the metal post is linked to your jawbone. After that, the implant crown is held in position by an implant abutment attached to the titanium screw. The dental crown is often constructed of ceramic and resembles a natural tooth. Implants are designed to be a long-term tooth replacement option. Dental implants resemble natural teeth in appearance and feel, and they can be cared for in the same way.

Implants are usually made of titanium alloy. These implants are considered safe since titanium is a biocompatible material. This means the body readily accepts and works with titanium implants. As opposed to other metals, titanium lasts a long time, does not irritate your jaw or gums, and is absorbed by your bones as though it were a natural element. Moreover, the care of titanium implants is the same as that of natural teeth. Maintaining good oral hygiene will enable you to have a long-lasting dental implant.

If you are allergic or sensitive to metals, titanium dental implants are not recommended for you. Titanium implants are made of metals such as nickel, iron, lead, zinc, and copper. The good news is that there is an alternative to titanium implants. A zirconia implant, for instance, is nearly metal-free and biocompatible.

Dental implants, which are meant to blend in with your natural teeth, are a popular and successful technique to replace lost teeth. They’re a fantastic long-term solution for repairing your smile. Dental implants are constructed from titanium and other biocompatible materials. They are also permanent since they are engineered to merge with bone. Dental implants eliminate the possibility of your teeth falling out while speaking or eating. They do away with the embarrassment of removable dentures and the necessity for messy adhesives to keep them in place.

Furthermore, because surrounding teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your natural teeth are preserved, resulting in better long-term oral health. Each individual tooth implant also improves dental hygiene by allowing simpler access between teeth. Since dental implants are so durable, they will last for many years. Many implants can last a lifetime with proper care.

Bone grafts are used to restore bone density in areas of the jaw that have lost bone density or require additional support. The bone can be extracted from another part of the body and surgically joined to the jaw’s existing bone. It’s also possible to utilize a synthetic bone substitute. If your jawbone is too thin or soft, bone grafting may be required before dental implant surgery. With the help of a bone graft, an implant can be firmly fixed to the bone.

Bone grafting is not always necessary for multiple implants; however, it can improve the patient’s chances of a successful result if necessary. With advanced imaging technology, only your dentist can determine whether bone is lacking, resulting in the need for a bone graft. A thorough patient assessment is critical to determining the success rate and clinical outcomes for immediate surgical implant placement without bone grafting. Get a free consultation (*terms and conditions apply) at Smiles in Currambine to determine if bone grafting is necessary for you prior to getting multiple implants.

Several phases of tests and minor operations are involved in multiple dental implant treatments. Overall, the entire procedure can take anywhere from 3 to 9 months. Many dental specialists may be needed, including periodontists and oral surgeons. Depending on the situation, a local anaesthetic, intravenous sedation, or general anaesthesia may be used.

The method for placing several dental implants is mainly similar to that of inserting a single implant. The titanium post is surgically attached to the jawbone through an incision in the gum tissue. However, depending on the number and location of missing teeth, this process may be repeated several times. When all of the implant posts have been placed, protective caps are placed over the implant sites to protect the surrounding areas. As the implant fuses with the jawbone and the prosthetic restorations are attached, these protective caps keep the soft tissue in shape. The dental implants merge with the gums and bones over time, resembling the missing tooth roots.

Thanks to dental implants’ durability and long-lasting properties, you can enjoy them for many years to come. During your appointment at Smiles in Currambine, our dentists will provide advice on how best to care for your dental implants, such as special brushes or toothpaste. It is also essential to keep your mouth clean when you have implants to prevent infection. Smiles in Currambine offers professional cleaning services for dental implants to ensure their longevity. If your implant becomes loose or affects your bite, you should contact us as soon as possible.

The cost of dental implants varies according to how complex the case is and how many teeth need to be replaced. Feel free to contact Smiles in Currambine for a free consultation (*terms and conditions apply). Upon assessing your individual needs, our dentists will work with our treatment coordinator to determine the most affordable treatment for you. We offer flexible payment plans, and some of the treatment costs may be covered by your dental health insurance plan.
