Can You Get Dental Implants If You Have No Teeth?

When it come to replacing missing teeth, there are several different treatment options to consider. However, if you have no teeth, your options may be limited due to bone loss. With advancements in technology, that may not be the case anymore.

The most common option for replacing a full set of teeth is dentures, but they are not the most effective and long-term solution. At TeethNow, we strive to provide our patients with the best treatment option possible, and we believe dental implants offer multiple advantages compared to other treatment options, especially dentures.

I Have No Teeth – What Are My Options?

One of the main concerns when it comes to dental implants is making sure the jaw bone density of the patient is strong enough and high enough to properly insert and support the dental implants. Having no teeth causes the jaw bone to weaken and diminish over time. At times, bone grafting may be needed in order have enough stability to support the dental implant. The comfort level of dental implants also makes them the natural choice for a full-mouth restoration.

Rather than having to deal with the hassle and discomfort of conventional dentures, people opt out for single tooth implant with a crown, dental implant-supported denture, or the All-on-4™ technique. Each of these options have do in fact replace missing teeth, however, each have their own advantages that make them the better solution.

Single Tooth Implant With Crown.

Single tooth implants can be used for patients who need to replace one or multiple teeth. The dental implant is surgically inserted into the jaw bone. The dental implant acts as the artificial root and anchors the replacement tooth, or crown. Once the implant is integrated with the bone, a crown is then attached to the implant and replaces the missing space left by the missing tooth. With this option you can have your teeth individually replaced so they will appear to be growing out of your gum, making them look more like natural teeth. This option usually requires eight or more dental implants.

In order for this procedure to be successful, the patient must have a strong enough jaw bone to support the implant as well as healthy surrounding gum tissue and teeth. If the jaw bone is not dense enough, bone grafting may be required.

All-on-4™ Fixed Bridge.

The All-on-4™ treatment is an advanced, minimally invasive solution for replacing teeth. The treatment is a full-arch restoration with the use of only four dental implants, two of which are inserted at a 45 degree angle in the posterior of the jaw. By inserting the implants at angle, we are able to utilize the available bone, avoiding the need of any bone grafting. This helps preserve the bone and soft tissue.

With this technique, patients can receive a fully-functioning, brand new smile in a shorter procedure time. Compared to natural teeth, this procedure improves functionality to 90%. They allow you to eat the foods you want comfortably and you are able to clean the fixed implant bridge as if they were natural teeth.

Dental Implant Supported Dentures.

There are numerous advantages that dental implants provide. Other than looking and functioning like natural teeth, implant supported dentures are designed to be a long-lasting solution. They are much more and stable compared to conventional dentures because they are fixed to the jaw bone.

The most beneficial advantage of implant supported full dentures is that the bonded bridge is supported by implants rather than the surrounding teeth. When utilizing conventional dentures, over time, recession of the jaw bone occurs which can lead to a collapsed smile. The integration with the jaw bone helps keep the jaw bone healthy and intact, providing constant support for the dental implants.

Mini Dental Implants

What Are Mini Dental Implants

Mini dental implants are the most innovative dental implant type. Though they are smaller than the traditional dental implant, they are just as strong and effective. Mini dental implants carry out the same function as traditional dental implants, providing patients with an alternative option for tooth/teeth replacement.
Starting from the time they were first implemented, mini implants have gained a large amount of attention. In addition, they are frequently inquired about. Their small size and narrow structure makes them a high demand and highly appealing smile restoration option..p

Mini Dental Implants vs. Traditional Dental Implants

Both mini dental implants and traditional dental implants are made up of a titanium alloy material. Other than their similarity in material make-up, they differ in many ways. The mini dental implant measures 2.5 mm in diameter, whereas the traditional dental implant is approximately 5 mm in diameter.

The size of these implants make this option more cost effective and less invasive. Since the screw that is inserted into the jaw is much more narrow, no drilling is required. Upon evaluation at one of our three TeethNow locations, you will find out which treatment is best for you.

TeethNow Procedures Using Mini Dental Implants

After your consultation with your doctor, your assigned treatment plan coordinator will go over your treatment options, as well as your financial options. Your X-Ray and CT-Scan results will determine if you have a sufficient bone density to support your mini dental implants.

Tooth Loss – Effecting Millions Worldwide

As of 2018, studies confirm that nearly 40 million Americans are missing all of their teeth. The factors that contribute to missing teeth typically vary from person to person. Some of these factors may include dental decay, smoking, gum disease, poor oral hygiene, Periodontal Disease, and bone trauma.

From mild cases to severe cases, tooth loss disrupts daily functions and interferes with everyday life. In addition, tooth loss worsens with age. When someone is presented with tooth loss, they are dealt with a plethora of issues.  Pain, migraines, eating trouble, and low self-esteem may arise as a result of tooth loss. In severe cases, bone loss and facial disfiguration can and will occur.
