Multiple Tooth Implants Agoura Hills

Happy, senior patient looking at himself in a mirror with multiple tooth implants at Artistic Smiles in Agoura Hills, CADaily, many people lose one or more teeth, either as children or as an adult.

While losing a tooth may seem cute for a child, it can be a worrisome problem for an adult.

Missing as little as one tooth can cause speech production issues, as well as stress about being able to eat, especially hard or chewy foods.

Moreover, losing teeth in the front of our mouth can alter our beautiful smile, making us self-conscious about our smile.

Thankfully, adults can replace missing teeth at Artistic Smiles with dental implants.

What Are Dental Implants?

Single-tooth implants are dental implants used to replace a whole tooth. They replace a tooth completely from its crown to its root.

The dental implant used is a tiny titanium or zirconium rod that is surgically positioned inside the jawbone.

This implant rod is made from biocompatible materials and does not cause any negative reactions in the human body.

The implant is left to heal in a process where the jawbone fuses around the implant and holds it securely. After it has healed, it will receive an abutment and a permanent artificial crown.

This completes a permanent single-tooth replacement.

Multiple Tooth Implants in Agoura Hills

Multiple tooth implants are similar to single-tooth dental implants, but instead of one implant, there are several.

Multiple teeth implants can be placed with individual crowns, a dental bridge, or with multiple crowns.

Individuals missing more than one tooth can choose single-tooth implants to replace each tooth separately or opt for multiple tooth implants.

The Procedure for Receiving a Dental Implant

Our professionals will assess and examine patients thoroughly to ensure that they are candidates for a dental implant.

We will examine their dental health as well as their medical records.

Some patients may require a preparatory procedure, such as tooth extraction to remove damaged or decayed teeth, or even a bone graft for patients who have lost significant jawbone density in the area of the missing teeth.

The dental implants are placed during a surgical procedure, which will be done under anesthesia to keep the patient comfortable and free of pain.

Our professionals will surgically cut open the gums, and place the implant into a hole that we will drill in your jawbone. After this procedure, you may be given a temporary crown to fill the space while you heal.

The healing period may take a couple of months, but it is highly dependent on each patient. Dental implants placed in the lower jaw tend to heal faster than those placed in the upper jaw.

Once it is healed, you will return to have the abutment fastened to the implant. This usually requires some minor procedure on the gums.

This will quickly heal in a couple of weeks.

During this period, your permanent crown will have been created with impressions and measurements taken from your mouth in the initial appointment.

This crown will be placed as soon as your gums have healed.

Dental Implant Options for Missing Teeth

In addition to single-tooth implants and multiple tooth implants, we provide implant-supported dentures, All on 4 - which place only four dental implants into the entire arch, and mini dental implants.

Mini dental implants are smaller than standard dental implants and are often used for those who may suffer from a weakened jawbone.

These implants do not require as much bone mass to be placed.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants have many benefits. Following the procedure, your new teeth are completely ready to use.

Dental implants are as durable and efficient as your natural teeth, and you may even forget you had any dental implants installed.

Dental implants are permanent and can last a lifetime. They restore your chewing power and give you a full smile once again!

Caring for your new dental implants is as easy as brushing and flossing your teeth regularly, and keeping up with scheduled dental appointments for exams and checkups.

Avoiding bad habits such as smoking or excessive alcohol consumption is necessary to avoid implant failure, as these habits greatly slow down the healing process.
