Multi-Dental Implants:

Multiple Teeth Replacement

Multiple teeth surrounded by healthy teeth have unique demands. The challenge is to replace your now missing teeth for both appearance and function, without harming your remaining teeth or gum tissue.

In the case of replacing three teeth in the back of the mouth, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the only fixed alternative. Traditional dentures can't offer the same stability or function.

Having dental implants replacing your lost back teeth will give you new, unparalleled strength and stability that allows you to eat what you want. It will also preserve your jawbone and facial appearance.

The Treatment Sequence:

Step1-Before the procedure - Three teeth at the back end of the mouth are missing. The only real replacement alternative is installing a fixed implant bridge. The bridge contains all teeth in one piece and is anchored on dental implants..

 

Step2-Placement of implants - First, the implants are placed. In some cases, a temporary bridge may be placed at the same time, making it possible for you to function like normal almost immediately after leaving the dentist. This depends on quality of bone.
 


Step3-Attaching the bridge - The implants need to integrate with the jawbone before the permanent bridge is attached. This is normally done 3-6 months after implant placement. The time will vary, depending on the teeth involved and the cosmetic demands.

 

Step4-End result - The new bridge will handle all the pressure that your strong, natural back teeth did. You will have a stable and secure solution that allows you to eat what you want.



 

Alternatives to Fixed Bridge:

Removable partial denture - This alternative is often perceived as uncomfortable and a bit complicated to use. Function can't be compared to that of a bridge. This denture is made of plastic and metal, which affects its look.  With no anchorage to back teeth, patients have to adjust to movement of the teeth when they speak or chew. Food often gets under the partial, causing discomfort or "sore spots".  However, the installation process is simple, and natural teeth are spared.
