Multiple Teeth Replacement with Dental Implants
San Antonio, TX

When you lose a tooth due to injury or decay, it can be devastating. People place great importance on the way their smile looks to others and Americans spend millions of dollars on cosmetic surgery and whitening treatments and products every year just to improve the way their teeth look.

While it can be overwhelming for an adult to lose a tooth, here at Excellent Dental Specialists we have options available for patients who need one or more teeth replaced.

What are Dental Implants?

Contrary to what you may have heard, dental implants have been around for centuries and have been used successfully to replace teeth for decades. The first thing people with missing teeth may think about is dentures, and while that is a popular option, there is something better, dental implants.

Dental implants are a replacement for the root of a tooth and look and feel like your natural teeth. More importantly, implanting teeth is the only way you can preserve and, in many cases, regenerate your bone, which is critical. There are three parts to a dental implant:
•  The dental implant or screw that bonds with the natural bone in the jaw
•  The connector or abutment placed on top to hold the crown
•  The custom-made crown

We also offer a solution if you don’t have enough jawbone for a conventional. However, if you are interested in improving your jawbone so it can support dental implants, we offer bone augmentation, sinus lift, and ridge expansion treatments.

Multiple Dental Implants

Whether you need one or multiple dental implants for teeth replacement, the process is very similar. Once we determine this surgery is the course of action, we will develop a personalized treatment plan to fit your specific needs. If you decide to get all your teeth replaced by dental implants, your recovery could last up to 12-weeks. We will also take an impression of your teeth and make a model of your bite, so your new teeth fit your mouth.

Advantages of Dental Implants

If you have several missing teeth and have used a denture in the past, you may have lost bone mass. One of the most significant benefits of getting dental implants is that the bone can regenerate. Other reasons to consider getting implants are:
•  Self-confidence is restored because you get your smile back
•  Dental implants look, function, and feel like natural teeth
•  With proper care, implants will last you many years
•  Your speech will improve if you were using dentures that fit poorly
•  Your oral health will improve

We want to do everything we can, so our patients are confident in their smile, and for those with missing teeth it can be difficult not to be self-conscious. Moreover, missing teeth can lead to bone loss which requires additional and more expensive treatments.

Dental implants are becoming more and more popular as a tooth replacement treatment, and the surgery enjoys a very high rate of success at Excellent Dental Specialists. If you have any questions, about dental implants or are feeling discomfort due to missing teeth, please call us today at (210) 598-8933.
