Restore Your Smile With Multiple Dental Implants
We provide multiple dental services to help you get the beautiful and confident smile you’ve always desired.
What Are Multiple Dental Implants?
When missing teeth are not replaced, they can cause damage to the surrounding bone and tissues. A common solution to these is dentures and bridges. Yet, they become prone to snapping or loosening over time, which can be a concern.
Another ideal treatment to restore your smile is dental implants. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically inserted into the jawbone. They are made of titanium, which is safe for the human body. Implants integrate with the bone and serve as a solid foundation for the crowns.
There is no need for a dental implant to replace each tooth as multiple implants can now offer a new row of teeth.
Multiple implants are a good alternative to replace two to four missing teeth without the need for support from other teeth or for them to become loose.
Piara Waters Dental provides affordable multiple dental implants and crowns that resemble the look and function of natural teeth.
Benefits Of Multiple Dental Implants
Multiple implants provide various advantages over other dental restorations.
These provide patients with improved aesthetics, convenience, and functionality. Receiving multiple dental implants is the best way to improve your appearance. You will no longer have to worry about denture adhesives or loosening.
They are a safe solution
Biocompatible materials such as titanium are used by dentists. The body won't reject or infect the implant, so a patient is never at risk of infection or rejection. As a result, the implant stays firmly embedded in the bone. As soon as a multiple tooth implant is bonded, it becomes an anchor or foundation on which the dentist can install artificial teeth.
Multiple dental implants are simple to maintain. You would just need to brush and floss your teeth (especially around artificial teeth) daily, just as you would with real teeth. Moreover, you will never have to remove the implants to clean them. They function as natural teeth both day and night.
Of course, proper oral hygiene habits are a necessary and essential component of oral health maintenance. So, we recommend that you visit your dentist regularly for professional cleaning and monitoring of your implants.
They function just like your teeth
Since multiple implants are securely placed in the jawbone, teeth that are supported by them have the same force of chewing and biting just like natural teeth.
It preserves the jawbone
In the absence of a tooth, the bone begins to deteriorate.
The process of osseointegration allows the implant to become integrated with the jawbone. Once healed, they become more stable and strong underneath, which also allows the bone to continue simulating.
It preserves the adjacent teeth
Traditional bridges need support from the surrounding teeth by grinding down healthy teeth. Such preparation may cause more damage than restoring your smile. Multiple implants are placed in the jawbone without the need for support from other remaining teeth.
Better and long-lasting solution
Multiple tooth implants have good long-term results. The success rate could range between 95% and 98%. It is advisable to visit the dentist on a routine basis for dental cleanings. As a result, the implants will survive for a longer period. Furthermore, we recommend that you refrain from smoking in order to maintain the successful outcome and your oral health.

FAQ’s About Multiple Dental Implants
Multiple implants are a great solution for your missing teeth or an alternative to your dentures and traditional bridges. But, it is important to consider some factors to determine the success of the treatment and whether you are a suitable candidate for multiple implants.
- Several of your teeth are missing in a row.
- Healthy adults with fully developed jaws.
- Your bone tissue is sufficient to support the implants.
- There are no other dental issues like gum disease.
- There is no other underlying medical condition.
- For certain medical conditions, you will need the doctor’s prior approval before we proceed.
A healthy mouth and surrounding teeth are necessary for most dental restorations. This will prevent further damage or complications to the tooth when it is repaired.
Even if your jawbone has weakened, you may still be an ideal candidate for implants. In some cases, bone can be repaired as part of the implant process through dental grafting techniques.
Your bone will be better preserved since multiple tooth implants will replace your tooth roots, not just the crown. The implants will merge with your jawbone over time during osseointegration. In this way, bone loss is prevented because your body senses that your bone still simulates or supports teeth (which are your new artificial crowns and tooth roots)
You may be wondering about the alternatives to multiple implants. We recommend discussing your preferences and goals with the dentist to determine the best treatment plan for your missing teeth. Common alternative options to implants are the following:
- Full dentures
- Partial dentures
- Traditional dental bridges
- Mini implants
- Same-day dental implants
- Initial assessment
Your dentist will first perform a comprehensive evaluation to assess your jawbone’s condition and decide on the optimal dental implant treatment. This initial evaluation involves X-rays, impressions, and matching your teeth’s color to your implant.
Depending on your oral health, you may need to consult other dental professionals, such as periodontists, to assess how many teeth you wish to replace with implants.
You’ll also talk about your health issues and medications. Antibiotics may be required prior to surgery depending on your health or orthopedic implants.
- Implant placement and bone grafting
The dental team will ensure that the implant site is numb. Once the numbing agent takes effect, the dentist will make an incision and drill a hole in the jawbone. They will then place the titanium post or implant and then sew up the gums.
If your present jawbone is strong and thick enough, you may not require a dental bone graft or additional bone.
After the initial surgery, it will take several weeks for the healing process. The jawbone will grow around the implant, making it more stable and strong foundation.
- Abutment placement
The dentist will put an abutment on top of your implant once it has become sufficiently solid. This piece attaches the crown to your implant. The abutment must be tightened so that it remains in position during eating.
Because it extends beyond the gum line, the abutment can be inserted at the same time as the implant. It will be apparent when you smile, so you will need to consider how to conceal it. The dentist will place a healing cap on the abutment to prevent tissue and bone growth.
- Tooth replacement
Your dentist will create your artificial tooth or crown after your gums have healed. You can have a removable one, such as a denture or permanent implant.
Generally, there are three types dentists who may perform dental implant procedures. Oral surgeons, periodontists, and general dentists
You may experience some of the common discomforts associated with any type of oral surgery, if you have dental implant surgery in one session or multiple phases, such as:
- Swelling of the face or gums.
- Mild bruising of your skin and gums.
- Pain at the implant site.
- Minor bleeding.
You may need to eat soft foods after each stage of surgery to allow the surgical site to heal. Generally, your dentist will use self-dissolving sutures. If your stitches do not dissolve on their own, your dentist will remove them.
Additionally, your dentist will give you home care instructions to manage some side effects. If bleeding persists, contact the dental office right away.
Dental implants have become a common procedure in dentistry. Studies have reported a success rate of tooth implants of up to 90%-95%. However, like other medical procedures, the dental implant procedure involves some health risks. Although problems are rare and easily treated.
- Infection at the implant site
- Pain and numbness in your natural teeth, gums, and lips may indicate nerve damage.
- Potential damage to surrounding structures, including teeth or gums.
- If the implants are inserted in the upper jaw, they may extend into your sinus cavities, which may result in sinus problems.
Many factors can contribute to a dental implant’s failure, including a patient’s general health, the quality of post-procedure care, and the skills of the dentist.
Some other factors that can cause implant failure may include but are not limited to the following:
- Misalignment of the implant.
- Risk of infections.
- Poor assessment and impressions of the teeth, gums, and jawbone.
- Unsuccessful osseointegration or poor development of the implant and bone.
- Nerve damage.
- Body rejection or allergic reactions.
- Failure of the implant.
