Frequently Asked Questions
About Multiple Dental Implants
about the treatment process? We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions
to help address any concerns you have.
Two implants can usually hold a maximum of 4 to 5 artificial teeth. This is because more teeth require more support. The force from biting and chewing is greater when more artificial teeth are in place. This can increase the stress on the implants.
Yes, two dental implants can be placed next to each other. However, this is only recommended if there is adequate space between them. If they are closer, there may not be enough room for healthy bone to grow and connect the implants firmly to your jaw.
The dentists at Mary River Dental will plan your dental implant treatment and placement carefully. We will place them in a safe and stable position.
Gums can grow around the actual implant, but this is not always the case. It will depend on individual factors. These include the condition of your gums and jawbone and how healthy they are. Another factor to consider is the presence of gum disease. Your gums may also recede over time, which can cause implants to become visible.
It is recommended for a single implant to support a maximum of three fake teeth. Placing more than these on a single implant could weaken and damage it. However, if you are missing several teeth in one area, your dentist may recommend placing multiple implants to support your replacement teeth.
Dental implants are usually charged per piece. So, the more you need, the higher your price will be. However, the benefits they offer typically outweigh the additional cost. They are a more stable and secure long-term tooth replacement option. This makes them an excellent investment for your dental health.
In addition, some health funds may cover some of the dental implant costs. Remember to contact your private health insurance to find out if you are eligible for this.
You will be given a local anaesthetic during the dental implant procedure to numb the treatment area. Because of this, most patients report feeling little to no discomfort during the surgery.
However, after the procedure, you may experience discomfort and swelling in your mouth for a few days. These can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications your dentist will prescribe. You can expect the symptoms to subside within a few days. Remember to get enough rest and follow post-treatment instructions for a comfortable recovery.
