SEVERAL TEETH REPLACEMENT

BEST OPTION FOR REPLACING SEVERAL MISSING TEETH

Dentures and implants in Tenerife

 

CAN DENTAL IMPLANTS BE USED TO REPLACE MORE THAN ONE TOOTH?

Dental implants can be used to replace several and even all the missing teeth. Depending on the condition of the existing teeth and overall bone support, the missing teeth can be replaced with either a removable dental implant supported denture or a fixed bridge anchored on dental implants. Implants provide needed stability for a complete denture, which enables the patient to look great and function with confidence. When several teeth are missing, dental implants can be used to place an implant supported crowns or bridgework. In these situations, the benefits of implant supported teeth are greatly increased.

DISVANTAGES OF REMOVABLE DENTURES

A removable partial denture actually accelerates the bone resorption process resulting in rapid bone deterioration. In addition, the clasps that hold the removable partial denture in place put extreme pressure on the adjacent natural teeth resulting in loosening of the teeth. Often the adjacent teeth are eventually lost due to the forces of chewing on the dentures. Many patients with removable partial dentures state they are not comfortable with them and often won't wear them. Implants can also be used to replace several teeth, eliminating the need to grind down healthy adjacent teeth to serve as posts for traditional Crown & Bridge therapy.


ADVANTAGES OF REPLACING SEVERAL TEETH WITH AN IMPLANT BRIDGEWORK

• They look, feel and function like natural teeth
• They are much more comfortable and stable than partial dentures
• Biting and chewing is restored like nature intended so you can eat properly
• They virtually stop bone deterioration and resorption
• The integrity of facial structures are maintained
• Adjacent teeth are not loosened or reduced to pegs
