If you are missing multiple teeth, Dr. Amy Marckese-Braun in Indianapolis, IN offers several options for replacement including dental implants for multiple missing teeth. Dental implants provide long-term and highly effective results for patients missing multiple teeth. Multiple missing teeth can be replaced using several separate dental implants to replace individual teeth, or with the use of a bridge to replace consecutive missing teeth. Dental implants are the most natural-looking and innovative solution for replacing missing teeth.
Dr. Marckese-Braun will meet one-on-one with each dental implant patient. During your consultation, she will perform a thorough dental health exam to see if multiple dental implants are the right choice for you. Dr. Marckese-Braun is able to perform a majority of the procedures for dental implants in Indianapolis, IN at her dentist office. A small number of cases are referred to specialists to have the dental implants placed. In either situation, Dr. Marckese-Braun will coordinate the entire treatment plan and work closely with the specialist when necessary to be sure everything is properly placed.
Dental Implants For Multiple Missing Teeth
For several consecutive missing teeth, Dr. Marckese-Braun may recommend using a dental bridge supported with a dental implant. Two or more implant posts will be surgically implanted in the jaw. These posts will permanently secure the dental bridge restoration.
Dr. Marckese-Braun also offers dental implant dentures which provide a better result than removable dentures. Implant dentures are permanently attached to the jaw using as few as four dental implants. Dentures secured by dental implants eliminate the need for glues, adhesives, soaks or rinses and restores normal chewing function.
Once the dental implants are strategically, surgically placed, it will take about 3-6 months for the posts to fully heal and fuse with the jaw bone. Once fully healed, a custom designed dental bridge or dentures will be secured to the implants by Dr. Marckese-Braun in her Indianapolis, IN dentist office. With the use of modern technology, dental bridges can now be color matched to your natural smile for a perfect fit. Dental implant secured bridges and dentures offer natural looking and secure tooth replacement.
Patients who chose dental implants enjoy an improved sense of self-confidence and enjoy a better quality of life. The implants will also help to stimulate natural bone growth in the jaw and maintain the structure of your face.
