Multiple Teeth ImplantsA full set of teeth enhances chewing efficiency and maintains facial structure. When one or more teeth go missing, functionality and facial balance is lost. The loss of a group of teeth dramatically effects speech, smile and confidence. Dental implants have become the gold standard for restoring missing teeth compared treatments like dentures and dental bridges.
What Are Multiple Teeth Implants?
Multiple teeth implants consists of three different components. The dental implant itself is the screw that anchors itself into the bone and provides support to the ‘tooth’ when you chew. The second component is called the ‘abutment’ and that is an intermediary part that joins the ‘tooth’ to the dental implant screw. The third component is what you see and use – and that is the dental implant crown or the ‘tooth’.
Steps To Completing Your Multiple Teeth Implant Journey
After an initial consult, we will gather further information to allow us to diagnose and treat the missing tooth appropriately. We may require moulds to be taken to assess the bite as well as other diagnostic records such as x-rays to assess bone availability. Planning to this degree means we will have the most appropriate implant ready to go!
This visit is where the dental implant screw is placed with precision into the jaw bone. If you require a tooth extraction, it is possible to have this done during your implant placement. This will save you having to undergo two seperate surgeries. Your dentist will discuss the sedation and anxiolysis options available to you. Every care will be taken to ensure you have the most pleasant experience.
The last phase of the treatment process is to fill the implant with a set of ‘teeth’. An impression/mould will be taken of the implant to capture its location in your mouth, carefully considering neighbouring teeth. This will allow us to expertly craft teeth to refill the missing space. After a healing period of 3 – 6 months, the dental implants are ready to use.
The Cost of Multiple Teeth Implants
The cost of a set of three teeth on two dental implants starts at $9,500. This is a package pricing that includes the dental implant screws, the implant abutments and the implant crowns. Please do note that the price may vary for each specific case as there are specific factors and clinical conditions that will play a part in the reconstruction of missing teeth. For example, some patients may require a bone graft or complete sedation services.

When a tooth is extracted, a significant amount of bone is resorbed as a result of the extraction. The majority of this resorption happens in the first three months and often results in a sunken/hollowing appearance post treatment.
In the past, surgeons would harvest bone from another part of the body (such as the hip) to do a bone graft for a dental implant procedure. Recent advancements have considerably changed this for the better.
