Multiple Teeth Replacement

For patients seeking the replacement of one or more missing teeth contact our dental office  today to schedule a consultation.

SEVERAL TEETH MISSING


Having dental implants replacing your lost back teeth may give you  strength and stability. It will also preserve your jawbone and facial appearance.

Treatment:

After the initial examination, you can expect 4-5 additional visits until the final fixed bridge is permanently attached. It is normal to experience some minor bruising and swelling in the gum and soft tissue afterwards. Any discomfort is usually treated with an ordinary painkiller. You should expect to be able to work the next day.

COURSE OF TREATMENT

INSTALLING THE FIXED BRIDGE– STEP-BY-STEP

The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult your dentist to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.

1: Before the procedure
Three teeth at back end of the mouth are missing. A recommended replacement alternative is installing a fixed bridge. The bridge contains all teeth in one piece and is anchored on dental implants.
2: Installing the implant
First, the implants are installed. This is normally done in a single session. A temporary bridge may be placed at the same time, 
3: Attaching the bridge
The implants need to integrate with the jawbone before the permanent bridge is attached. This is normally done 1-2 months after the implant installation. The time will vary, depending on the teeth affected and the esthetical demands.
4: End result
The new bridge will help to get back part of the strength and stability that your  natural back teeth did. 

 

ALTERNATIVES TO FIXED BRIDGE

Removable partial denture
This alternative is often perceived as uncomfortable and a bit complicated to use.  This denture is made of plastic and metal, which affects its look. It is quite expensive to fabricate due to its many parts. However, the installation process is simple, and natural teeth are spared.
