Single and Multiple Tooth Replacement with Dental Implants

Lincoln Multiple Tooth Replacement
Without a doubt, dental implants provide the most durable, stable, and realistic method of replacing missing teeth available in modern dentistry. They are also the most versatile method, allowing for the replacement of a single tooth, multiple consecutive or non-consecutive missing teeth, or even every tooth in the mouth. In fact, at the cosmetic dentistry practice of Dr. Andrew R. Glenn in Lincoln, multiple tooth replacement cases that other implant dentists might consider too complex are welcomed.

You don’t have to live with the aesthetic, functional, and health consequences of missing teeth. With dental implants, you can have a second chance at a beautiful smile and outstanding oral health.

Replacing a Single Tooth

If you are missing a single tooth, there are multiple replacement options available to you, including a traditional fixed bridge that is attached to the natural teeth adjacent to the gap. However, dental implants offer the significant advantage of replacing your missing tooth with a strong, natural-looking dental crown that does not rely on healthy teeth for support. Dr. Glenn can place a single dental implant - a titanium post that integrates with the jawbone to act as an artificial tooth root - in the site once occupied by the missing tooth. Once the implant and the bone have fused together, Dr. Glenn tops the implant with a custom-crafted crown, completing the smile and restoring full function to the mouth.

Replacing Multiple Missing Teeth

In cases in which multiple consecutive teeth are missing, Dr. Glenn can place two or more implants to secure a dental bridge. Dental bridges are composed of up to three replacement teeth secured on either end by dental crowns. By attaching these crowns to dental implants, the gap in the mouth will be filled - without having to file down natural teeth to accommodate the crowns.

Replacing a Full Upper or Lower Arch of Teeth

Dental implants provide a far superior alternative to traditional removable dentures to patients who are missing most or all of the teeth on their upper arch, lower arch, or both arches. Unlike removable dentures, implant-supported dentures cannot shift or slip out of place, which eliminates the problems many denture wearers have with chewing, biting, and speaking. Imagine being able to eat, speak, smile, and laugh with ease and confidence once again. With implant-supported dentures, this dream can become a reality.

Oral Health Benefits of Dental Implants

Whether you are replacing a single tooth or every tooth in your mouth, dental implants offer a host of oral health benefits that other tooth restorations simply cannot match. Among these benefits, implant-supported restorations:

  • Prevent natural teeth adjacent to a gap from drifting toward the open space and shifting out of their optimal positions
  • Halt the degradation of the jawbone and periodontal tissues that is inevitable with tooth loss
  • Restore strength and integrity to the bite, potentially alleviating TMJ and orthodontic problems
  • Reduce the risk of the infection and inflammation of delicate oral tissues that comes with tooth loss
