Replace Multiple Missing Teeth with Dental Implants
Multiple Tooth Replacement Dental Implants by Dr. David Richardson, Implant Dentist in Charleston SC, Certified by the American Board of Prosthodontics
Multiple Teeth Replacement Dental Implants:
Do you have multiple missing teeth?
Multiple dental implants are the best way to replace your missing teeth – no question about it. The reason is dental implants eliminate the need to prepare (grind down) the adjacent teeth, which is necessary with a traditional fixed bridge.
The preparation (grinding) procedure may lead to other problems such as a root canal. In long-span fixed bridges fracture of the natural tooth root may occur due to the physical stresses of chewing on the remaining teeth that the bridge sits upon.
Sometimes these root fractures lead to more tooth loss. When bridge abutment teeth decay (and they ultimately do) it often results in more tooth loss. Dental implants do not decay! The scientific data clearly shows that utilizing a dental implant results in the least chance of more tooth loss in this situation. If any doctor doesn’t give this option when a tooth is missing, it is a good idea to get a second opinion before you begin a domino effect of further tooth loss.
How Multiple-Teeth Replacement Dental Implants Work:
The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult Dr. Richardson to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.
Step 1: Before the Procedure
Three back teeth are missing. The only real fixed replacement alternative is installing an implant-supported fixed bridge. The bridge contains all teeth in one piece and is anchored on dental implants.
Step 2: Installing the Implants
First, the implants are placed. This is normally done in a single session. 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.
Step 3: Attaching the bridge
The implants need to integrate with the jawbone before the fixed bridge is fabricated. This is normally done 3 months after the implant placement. The time will vary, depending on the teeth affected and the esthetical demands.
Step 4: 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.
