Multiple Dental Implants

Replacing multiple missing teeth with dental implants can make a huge difference to your self-esteem and confidence. This advanced treatment is at the cutting edge of restorative dentistry – an area in which we help make the difference for our patients. Dental implant treatment offers a long-term solution to missing teeth and we’ve carried out many successful multiple tooth implants here at Shine Dental Care in Mansfield.

Missing teeth can cause several problems for your dental health. The first is that your existing teeth will move and adjust to compensate for the teeth that are no longer there. This has an effect on your natural bite and can make brushing more difficult leaving you more vulnerable to oral infection. Over time, the bone that surrounded the tooth root deteriorates making your jawbone less strong and dense. Dental implants give a wonderful opportunity to address these issues while restoring your smile.*

If you have enough healthy jawbone, it’s possible to replace single missing teeth with single implants. You may have several missing teeth in a row – but it’s good to know that you won’t need to have an implant for each missing tooth. Instead, we’ll use a bridge made up of several carefully-crafted crowns connected together to effectively conceal the gap. Whatever your situation, you can be certain that tooth implants will have no negative impact on your remaining natural teeth.

Your bespoke treatment plan will depend on how many teeth are missing/failing, their locations, whether or not they are next to each other and jawbone volume. Many of the basic details are the same as single implants in that the implant consists of an artificial tooth root, which is inserted into the jawbone just like the root of a real tooth. After 3 to 4 months when the implant has fused with surrounding bone, a crown (for a single missing tooth) or bridge (for several teeth missing in a row) will be attached. The crowns or bridge will be matched to your natural teeth. You can read more here.

Prices are based on your individual needs and will be provided after your initial consultation. Our prices are clear and transparent, you’ll know exactly what to expect and when. We also provide a range of payment options to help spread the costs.

A brief guide to the multiple dental implant procedure

Our treatment plans are tailored to each of our patients, but the following guidelines give a general idea of procedure sequence and schedule:

Stage 1 – Planning

To help ensure the very best results for our patients, each case needs to be carefully planned. This may include:

  • A CBCT bone scan and radiographs (X-rays) to fully assess your teeth and supporting bone structure
  • Diagnostic wax-up, study models and surgical guide for further assessment and to help us show you the final result we’re hoping to achieve
  • Photography for treatment assessment, planning and recording
Stage 2 – Preparing the implant site

Before placing the implant, we may need to remove failing teeth. If this is the case, the tooth would be extracted and allowed to heal for a period of 8 to 12 weeks.

It may also be beneficial to perform a socket preservation procedure. This involves placing a bone substitute material into the socket to create as much bone as possible in which to place the implant. We may use a temporary crown when we remove teeth to help maintain your smile.

Stage 3 – Implant placement

Usually this takes place 8 to 12 weeks after a tooth has been extracted. The procedure takes up to 2 hours and is performed under local anaesthetic to keep you comfortable throughout.

Stage 4 – Crown/ bridge/ denture placement

We usually wait a period of 8 to 16 weeks for the implant(s) to fully integrate into the surrounding bone. At this point, we can place the final crown or bridge.

The benefits of dental implants

Frequently Asked Questions

About multiple dental implants at Shine Dental Care, Mansfield

  1. What is a dental implant?

    A dental implant consists of an artificial tooth root and man-made replacement tooth. The root is placed beneath the gum line and into the jawbone so that artificial teeth or bridges can be affixed to it.

    They can replace single or multiple teeth (and even a full set of teeth).

  2. Will I be suitable for dental implants?

    At Shine Dental Care, we fully assess your needs and listen to your concerns to offer all possible treatment options. We’re also very honest about what to expect and potential results. If you have diabetes, high blood pressure, osteoporosis or are a smoker, dental implants may not be right for you. We’ll talk this through in detail during your consultation.

  3. How long does the treatment take?

    This will depend on several factors including how many teeth are being replaced, if any failing teeth need to be removed and the strength of your jawbone. We will provide a timeline as soon as we’ve assessed all of these factors.

  4. Is the surgery painful?

    The implant procedure is carried out under local anaesthetic to keep you comfortable throughout.

  5. How long do dental implants last?

    Dental implants can last for many years (even a lifetime) if you care for them properly. They are a genuine long-term solution to missing teeth.

  6. How do I care for dental implants?

    Brush twice a day and floss once a day as you would your natural teeth. It’s also essential to attend all follow-up, check-up and hygiene appointments.
