Multiple Implants for Missing Teeth

Patients, who have lost more than one tooth, often resort to wearing partial dentures.

Treating Multiple Missing Teeth

Common issues associated with this include oral discomfort and increased difficulty in eating or speaking. If you wear dentures, did you know that you might be restricted to softer foods for the rest of your life? Loose dentures not only impact your overall quality of life but can also lead to serious oral health issues and complications, with consequences extending to physiological and psychological issues.

As experts in restorative and implant dentistry, Egham Dental Care recommends dental implants as a solution to return the mouth to a healthier state and enhance function. To explore all available options, contact us at 01784 472444

Advances in Dentistry

Dental implants offer a seamless replacement for multiple missing teeth, utilising implants to connect teeth. The robust titanium implant screws can support a bridge spanning up to four teeth in a row. This procedure is a durable, long-lasting solution requiring minimal maintenance, as highlighted in the All-on-Four technique. Depending on jawbone mass, implants can be placed on the same day or over a few months. See the benefits of implants that replicate the look, feel, and function of natural teeth, with a short healing period for the titanium screw to fuse with the jawbone. Click here for costs

Implant-Supported Crown

Single dental implants supporting individual crowns are recommended for missing teeth in different parts of the mouth, preserving neighbouring teeth from excessive forces. This method is suitable when adjacent teeth are unsuitable or weakened for traditional dental bridges.


Implant-Supported Dentures: A Stable Solution

When the jaw lacks natural teeth, opting for dentures may seem like the only choice. However, the ongoing loss of bone can lead to a common issue – loose dentures.

This instability leads to discomfort, with dentures causing sore spots and awkward instances where they may shift or drop during speech or chewing.

Traditional dentures rely on the gums, remaining teeth, and facial muscles for stability. While effective initially, they may become less predictable and more unstable over time. Click here for the differences between dentures and implants

Many patients move from dentures to implants, seeking relief from the problems posed by the effects of tooth loss. Explore the advantages of this life changing solution. Learn More


Advanced Solutions: Implant-Supported Bridges

For those with multiple missing teeth adjacent to each other, an implant-retained bridge is an excellent solution.

Implant-supported bridges become the preferred option when the natural teeth neighbouring the gap lack the strength required for supporting a traditional dental bridge.

By utilizing two or more implants, a bridge can be securely anchored, providing stability and support for multiple artificial teeth.

Crafted from a metal alloy framework combined with porcelain or composite resin, the bridge ensures a balance of strength and aesthetic appeal.

In a parallel treatment, the revolutionary all-on-4 technique comes into play when no natural teeth are present. This innovative approach involves fixing a fixed prosthesis onto four strategically positioned implants within the jawbone.

Opting for this treatment allows patients to enjoy the use of their new teeth soon after surgery, eliminating the need for an extended wait for osseointegration.

Implant Guide

Implants undergo colour matching and meticulous shaping to seamlessly harmonize with your natural teeth. Implant teeth are virtually indistinguishable from real teeth.

Long-Lasting Dental Implants

Once the implant integrates with your jawbone and surrounding tissues, the artificial titanium structure functions just like a natural root.

When we insert a titanium implant into the jawbone, it becomes an integral part of your oral structure.

This provides numerous health advantages, such as slowing or stopping bone loss, reinforcing the jawbone's structure, and diminishing the likelihood of gum disease due to better cleaning when compared to dentures.[Learn More.]


Longevity of Dental Implants

When appropriately cared for, dental implants boast a lifespan ranging from ten to twenty-five years or even longer.

Dental implants are beneficial for:

  • Tooth loss due to trauma, accidents, or injuries
  • Missing teeth resulting from gum disease or insufficient bone
