Complete Dentistry for All Ages offers dental implants to replace multiple missing teeth in our Lexington, KY, dental office. These restorations provide long-term and highly effective results for patients missing many teeth. Dr. Morgan Chambers can replace many missing teeth using several separate dental implants to replace individual teeth.
Or we can use a multiple tooth dental implant. Dr. Chambers can also replace a whole row of teeth with implant-supported dentures. She will use a dental bridge supported with dental implants to replace consecutive missing teeth.
Dental implants also have many other applications. For example, dental implants can replace missing teeth after a jawbone graft for patients with a weak jaw. In some cases, dental implants may be a more appropriate option than traditional dental crowns or removable partial dentures.
Implant-Supported Dental Bridges
Our dental office creates custom dental bridges that literally “bridge the gap” between natural teeth. Our custom dental prosthetics restore both function and aesthetics to your mouth. Traditionally, a dental bridge can be removable or permanent.
The dentist permanently attaches fixed bridges to adjacent teeth using porcelain or metal. With both of these options, the long-term outcome is often less than desirable and may require replacement down the road. The loss of teeth impacts the jaw and bite pattern over time.
Implant-supported dental bridges are more modern than traditional dental bridges since they’re resistant to infection and decay. Our dentist can quickly install them. They’re also more stable than traditional bridges since they anchor to your jawbone instead of your gums.
Dentures are the go-to solution for a full set of missing teeth. When deciding on a type of denture, consider the quality of life that you want. If you’d like to continue eating and drinking without pain, you’ll want an option that’s comfortable to wear. You’ll also need a denture that fits your mouth well since you’ll need to wear it for the rest of your life.
Traditional dentures are a great option if you’d like to change your appearance without pain. They’ll allow you to rid yourself of old teeth without suffering from tooth loss. The only downside is that you’ll need to routinely purchase denture care products to maintain them, and remove them every night.
On the other hand, Implant-supported dentures provide a better result than removable dentures. Additionally, dental implants eliminate the need for glues, adhesives, soaks, or rinses. Implant-supported dentures restore normal chewing function without the need for extra care and removing them for maintenance.
Our implant-supported dentures create a stable oral foundation that replaces a whole set of missing teeth. With careful planning, Dr. Chambers can use All-on-Four Implants to help patients with compromised bone structure. Our patients can receive implant-secured dentures and enjoy the benefits of a natural-looking and functioning mouth.
Dental Implants For Multiple Missing Teeth in Lexington
Dr. Chambers will meet one-on-one with each dental implant patient for a consultation. She will perform a thorough dental health exam to see if multiple dental implants are the right choice for each patient. Dr. Chambers is able to perform a majority of the procedures for dental implants at her Lexington dental office.
In severe cases, Dr. Chambers will work with a local oral surgeon to coordinate the surgical phase of treatment. Dr. Chambers will work closely with our dental implant specialist when necessary to make sure everything works properly.
After we strategically place the dental implants, it will take about 3 to 6 months for your mouth to heal. The posts will fully fuse with the jaw bone. Then, when your mouth fully heals, Dr. Chambers will secure the custom-designed dental bridge or denture. Implant-supported bridges and dentures offer natural-looking and secure tooth replacement results.
