Replacing Multiple Teeth with an Implants
If you are missing several teeth, implant supported crowns and bridges can replace them with ease. Implant supported bridges are permanently fixed in your mouth and will not move around, unlike removable partial dentures which can be a nuisance. Dental implants look and function like natural teeth without needing the support of neighboring teeth. Because dental implants replace the root of the natural tooth, they stimulate the jawbone long-term and help prevent bone loss. This helps to keep both the bone and gum tissue from collapsing, which can lead to an unattractive smile. In addition, you cannot get a cavity on an implant and will never need a root canal on an implant.
Replacing all Teeth with Implants
It is possible to replace all of your teeth with dental implants, and bypass the need for dentures altogether. If you have lost all of your teeth, you’re not alone – approximately 42% of Americans over the age of 65 are missing all of their natural teeth.
Dental implants can replace all of your teeth with implant-supported crowns and bridges, or implant supported dentures.
In many cases, our offices in Vancouver and Coquitlam may be able to provide you with a full set of teeth in one day of treatment. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and the roots.
Because dental implants replace the root of the natural tooth, they stimulated the jawbone long-term and help prevent bone loss and premature aging. Dental implants increase stability and chewing power. Implant-supported dentures enhance your ability to speak and smile with confidence, though in many cases, dental implant can completely eliminate the need for dentures.
