Double Tooth Implant

Double Tooth Implant
The successful ability to place a tooth implant to replace a missing tooth is based on the condition of your gums and jawbone. With careful placement, one implant can be used to support and stabilize more than one crown.
The Benefits of a Dental Tooth Implant
A dental implant for multiple teeth provides some advantages over a fixed bridge or removable partial dentures. The implant will look and function like natural teeth, and multiple tooth dental implants can replace teeth without any support from the adjacent natural teeth. The fixed bridge or removable partial dentures are both dependent on support from adjacent teeth.
Multiple tooth dental implants do not require the time-consuming maintenance as do removable partial dentures, which should be removed, cleaned, and soaked overnight. Multiple tooth dental implants need only be cared for with the same daily oral hygiene that is recommended for your natural teeth.
Since multiple tooth dental implants will replace tooth roots, your jawbone will remain healthy. The dental implant integrates with your jawbone, functioning as a root, keeping the jawbone healthy and your natural smile intact.
In summary, multiple tooth dental implants are more natural-looking, functional, durable, and comfortable than a fixed bridge or removable partial denture.
Reasons to Choose a Dental Implant
Before you decide on a dental implant, you should consult at length with your dentist. Some health issues may need to be addressed before your dental implant procedure can begin. These include:
* Jawbone Density- If you do not have adequate bone mass in your jaw to properly support an implant, a bone graft can help improve bone integrity and provide the needed density for your implant.
* Gum disease- Your dentist can help manage any problems with your gums to allow for a successful implant procedure.
* Overall health issues- If you have any health issues that may compromise your ability to heal, which might mean you are not a viable candidate for implants.
The Dental Implant Process
There are three components to an implant-supported double tooth bridge:
* The dental implant, which look like a tiny screw that is surgically placed into your jawbone.
* The prosthetic, crown, or artificial tooth, which looks and functions a like healthy, natural tooth.
* The abutment or extension that is inserted into the implant to reach the gumline surface to connect to the crowns.
The first step of the procedure is to surgically place the tiny titanium post into your jawbone. The site is sutured closed and allowed to heal, fuse and bond to the bone.
During the following months, the implant or implants and the bone will be allowed to bond and fuse together to create an anchor to function like a tooth root. Next the implant or implants are uncovered, and the abutment or extension are attached. Finally, the bridge is designed and created to replicate your natural teeth and will be attached to the abutment or abutments. In a very brief time, you will experience a restored confidence in your smile and your ability to chew and speak normally.
