Replacing multiple missing teeth with Dental Implants ensures incomparable strength and stability that would allow you to eat and speak with full confidence, just like having a complete set of healthy and natural teeth. Multiple-teeth Dental Implants also preserves the natural structure of your jaw bone, which is critical in maintaining your natural facial structure and preventing bone loss. Whether you want to replace a few missing or all of your teeth, Dental Implants will be able to restore and actually improve chewing and speech, and definitely provide a permanent natural appearance as well.
The first step is to replace the teeth’s roots by placing the implants directly into the jaw bone to properly initiate “Osseo-integration,” a process in which the bone fuses with a bio-compatible material, like the titanium implants. The number of implants to be placed depends on the number of replacement teeth that are to be placed along the gum. Osseointegration normally takes place between 3 to 6 months wherein the implant screws will remain covered and protected underneath the gums the whole time.
The next step involves the removal of the protection caps to expose the implant screws so that “abutments” can be properly attached to them. The abutments serve as an extension to the implant screws and connectors to the “dental crowns” at the same time. This completes the foundation on which your new set of teeth will be supported in place.
The third and final step in finalizing the procedure is the placement of the dental crowns or literally, your new set of teeth. With proper techniques your dentist will make sure that the dental crowns are of optimal size, shape, fit, and colour to perfectly blend with your existing natural teeth and facial characteristics.
