How Many Implants Does It Take to Replace All Your Teeth?

How Many Implants Does It Take to Replace All Your Teeth?

Dental implants often emerge as the top recommendation for replacing multiple teeth due to their ability to offer a permanent and stable solution to replace teeth. It is important to understand how implants are necessary to help alleviate any uncertainties.

Contrary to popular belief, not every missing tooth requires its own implant. While a single implant can indeed replace one tooth, the actual requirement depends on the number and distribution of missing teeth.

For example, if you have three adjacent missing teeth, only two implants are typically needed to anchor a bridge (see Image). However, if the missing teeth are scattered, each one might necessitate its own implant.

Dispelling Misconceptions about Dental Implants

Exploring the All-On-4® Treatment Concept

For those missing an entire arch of teeth, the All-on-4® treatment offers a transformative solution. With this approach, a denture supported by as few as four implants and up to six implants can replace all teeth in an arch. After this procedure you will leave in with a temporary prosthesis that is screwed into the implants and thus it CANNOT be removed. This treatment is reserved for those with poorly fitting dentures or with multiple teeth that are unrestorable.

In certain scenarios, six implants per arch may be required, totaling twelve for a complete mouth reconstruction. The precise number is determined based on individual oral health during a consultation with an oral surgeon.
