Dental implants are a permanent, attractive and effective solution for people who have suffered multiple tooth losses due to decay, trauma or periodontal disease. Implants are natural-looking, durable and comfortable, making them an ideal option for restoring your smile and oral functioning.
Implants are permanently anchored in the jawbone and provide a stable support for artificial teeth. Unlike dentures, dental implants do not click or slip and will not fall out or move while eating, speaking or participating in activities. This increased security and comfort is one of the reasons that dental implants are the preferred solution for the replacement of several missing teeth.
Dental Implant Patient Testimonial for Multiple Teeth Replacement
Bridges, once the primary method for multi-tooth replacement, are inferior to dental implants because they are supported by the adjacent teeth. To place a bridge, the patient’s healthy teeth must be ground down and capped to support the bridge, which spans the space left by missing teeth. Grinding down the teeth weakens them, which can create more dental problems in the future. Dental implants are inserted without damaging the adjacent teeth and can actually improve oral hygiene because they allow for easier access between the teeth.
“I had 2 other opinions on dental implants before coming to Winterset, and after my consult with Dr. Agarwal, I knew I had found the right dentist for me. He is a true professional in every sense of the word, and I could not be happier with the end result. Thank you. ”
– Winterset Patient
Some gaps left by missing teeth are too large to be spanned by a bridge, but dental implants can be used to replace multiple teeth, no matter how large the gap. Bridges are also less durable than implants, which can last a lifetime with proper care.
Dentures are another approach to replacing multiple teeth, but are not as functional or cosmetically pleasing as dental implants. Removable dentures can slip and move within the mouth, causing discomfort, embarrassment and impaired functioning. Dental implants are securely anchored within the mouth, making it easy to eat, speak and smile with confidence.
Durable, comfortable, natural-looking dental implants can restore your appearance and functioning without damaging your other teeth. For these reasons, dental implants are the ideal solution for multiple missing teeth.
