Your Guide to Understanding and Choosing the Best Tooth Replacement Option at Smart Smile Dentistry

Your gateway to a radiant smile

A dental implant is replacement tooth root, as firm as a healthy natural root, or even better. It is made from an alloy of a very strong and well-known metal titanium alloy which possesses some very useful and special properties. The implant is screwed into your jaw bone directly, where the jaw bone naturally and willingly grows into the surface of the implant. You will read more about it in a subsequent paragraph. On top of this metallic screw is an abutment on which is placed a very natural looking artificial tooth. Perhaps, the best thing about dental implants is that multiple artificial teeth can be supported on a single implant.


You must be wondering as to why implant supported artificial teeth are so strong and durable? This is due to fact that titanium alloy promotes bone formation around the implant. In this way, the dental implant becomes firmly retentive within the jaw bone. This phenomenon is known as osseo-integration. What happens during this process is that bone cells tend to grow into the surface of the metal over a period of months. The implant surface thus acquires a very natural continuity with the jawbone adding to the strength provided by the threaded structure. Being a natural process it takes place gradually, and may take three to six months depending on the health of the host bone, and the overall health of the patient. Loss of a tooth is an unfortunate situation, but not an uncommon one. According to an estimate, about 180 million Americans are missing at least one tooth. So, don’t worry, you’re not alone! We have good news for you! at Smart Smile Dentistry in Gainesville, we offer multiple tooth replacement options to our esteemed patients, so that they can get back their smile and perform oral functions without difficulty.
Our patients choose implant-supported bridges and partials for a number of reasons. A traditional dental bridge is held in place by attaching crowns to neighboring teeth, but some patients either do not have structurally sound abutment, teeth or would rather not alter healthy teeth for this procedure. Dental implants will replace both your lost natural teeth and some of the roots. Removable partials are held in place with special clasps that attach to surrounding teeth and can cause tooth damage as well. However, when bridges and partials are supported by dental implants, they stand alone and do not harm your remaining natural teeth.
Dental implants can be costly, more costly than any of the alternatives for multiple teeth implants. Surely, you want to know how many implants are required in your own case. The good news for you is that you do not need one implant for every tooth you want to replace. The number of implants required for all necessary teeth on one jaw can be four, six, or eight, depending on the health factors. The term ‘all-on-four’ is quite popular term meaning that teeth of a jaw are supported on just four implants. Of course, the exact number of dental implants in your case will depend on various factors like the results of your oral examination, your requirements, and your budget and aesthetic priorities. Let’s take a look at some of the options available at Smart Smile Dentistry for replacing more than one tooth.

At Smart Smile Dentistry, we offer various options for replacing multiple teeth, tailored to your specific needs:

  • Fixed Partial Bridges: Ideal for replacing two or more adjacent teeth, these bridges are supported by implants for stability.
  • Fixed Complete Bridges: For full jaw restoration, we offer complete bridges supported by 4, 6, or 8 implants, providing unparalleled support and retention.
  • Implant-Supported Removable Overdentures: Enjoy the convenience of removable dentures anchored by implants, equipped with precision attachments to prevent movement during speech or eating.
Certainly! The procedure for multiple tooth dental implant replacement is similar to that for a single tooth but involves more strategic planning:
  1. Assessment and Planning: After determining you’re a good candidate, our dentist will create a detailed treatment plan using radiography and computer software to ensure optimal implant placement.
  2. Implant Placement: Using local anesthesia, the dentist places small titanium cylinders (implants) into the jawbone. These implants serve as the foundation for your new teeth.
  3. Osseointegration: After the implants are placed, a crucial phase called osseointegration begins, where the jawbone heals around the implants, securing them firmly. This process can take six weeks or more.
  4. Prosthesis Attachment: Once osseointegration is complete, prosthetic teeth are attached to the implants. An implant bridge is used for adjacent missing teeth, providing a permanent solution. Alternatively, partial dentures can be used, which may be anchored to the implants with special bars or attachments and can be removable.
Throughout the process, our team at Smart Smile Dentistry ensures that each step is executed with precision, providing you with a functional and aesthetically pleasing replacement for multiple missing teeth.
