You’ve heard that dental implants are a great way to restore a missing tooth because they look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth.

But what if you’re missing more than one tooth? You should consider investing in multiple teeth implants in El Segundo. Multiple implants can help you eat and speak comfortably – and give you a beautiful smile.

Why Should I Invest in Multiple Teeth Implants in El Segundo?

Missing teeth throw off the alignment of your teeth and jaw joints. If this isn’t addressed, it can have a tremendous impact on your oral health and overall health.

  • Oral health: When you lose a tooth, the jawbone doesn’t have anything to anchor to, which can cause bone recession. The bone around the adjacent teeth can start to recede as well, leading to deeper gum pockets, a higher risk of periodontal disease, and even tooth loss. Additionally, the remaining teeth shift to fill in the empty spaces, resulting in excess bite pressure on specific teeth. Eventually, these teeth can crack or break. TMJ disorder is also common.
  • General health: If you have TMJ disorder or sore teeth due to the excess pressure they’re enduring, eating can be challenging. Not having a complete set of teeth can reduce the ability to chew. Digestion begins in the mouth. If you’re unable to chew your food thoroughly, it can impact the rest of your digestion and how many nutrients you absorb.

Besides contributing to better oral and overall health, multiple teeth implants can correct speech issues (like a lisp) resulting from missing teeth.

How Does a Dentist Restore Multiple Missing Teeth?

Your El Segundo dentist will consider your needs, then determine whether you will benefit from single implants, multiple teeth implants or a multiple implant-supported bridge.

Multiple-Teeth Implants

Single implants replace each missing tooth. You can floss between each dental implant just as you would between your natural teeth in this scenario.

The implants are made of three parts:

  • The post/screw (the part in the jawbone)
  • The abutment (the connection between the implanted post and your restoration)
  • A crown (it fits over the abutment and looks like a natural tooth)

Multiple Implant-Supported Bridge

A fixed dental bridge might be ideal if you can’t afford to replace each missing tooth with an individual implant. It might also be an option for aesthetic reasons.

For example, if you’re missing three teeth, your El Segundo dentist can place two implants, leaving a space between them. Then, they can fabricate a bridge made of two crowns and a pontic (fake tooth) fused together. The crowns fit on top of the implant abutments and support the fake tooth in the middle.
