Patients have become fairly educated about the benefits that come with dental implants as an alternative to dental bridges, but many still wonder how many teeth you can replace with implants? In the early days of implant development, single tooth replacement was controversial, and full arch replacements were still on the horizon. Today, however, both of those are typical procedures. This means you can use implants to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth, with solutions for every tooth replacement need in between.
Full Mouth Implants
There are a few approaches to a full arch replacement, but the one that is quickly becoming the most popular is all-on-4® dental implant method. During this procedure, Dr. Nick Brand will position four titanium post within the jawbone so a complete denture set can be anchored to the set post. Utilizing the all on four technique will diminish the need for more complex pre-treatments like sinus augmentations, bone grafting, and other similar procedures associated with single implants.
Eat All Your Favorite Foods
Many patients pursuing traditional dentures worry about dietary restrictions because dentures are known to have issues with foods that are especially tough and damaging them can be expensive. With the all on four implants the artificial teeth used are strong, and the titanium anchors provide simulate the same jaw stimulation that the roots of the original teeth provide. This preserves the jawbone and gum tissue and simultaneously provides the strength needed to eat tough foods comfortably.
