When the three or more teeth are missing, the only real replacement alternative is installing multiple teeth implants. They contain all teeth in one piece and is anchored on dental implants.
Multiple tooth implants provide several advantages over fixed bridges and removable partial dentures. In addition to looking and functioning like natural teeth, multiple tooth dental implants replace teeth without support from adjacent natural teeth. Other common treatments for the loss of several teeth, such as fixed bridges or removable partial dentures, are dependent on support from adjacent teeth.
Another big advantage is that multiple tooth dental implants don’t require the time-consuming maintenance associated with removable partial dentures, which should be removed and cleaned after eating and soaked overnight. Instead, multiple tooth dental implants need only be cared for with the same daily brushing and flossing routines that are recommended for natural teeth.
Course of Treatment
BEFORE THE PROCEDURE
Three teeth at 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.
INSTALLING THE IMPLANT
Implants used to support a bridge are placed and allowed to surrounding bone in the same manner as a single tooth implant. After the appropriate healing time, healing abutments are placed on each implant to allow contouring of the tissue.
ATTACHING THE NEW CROWN
When the implant is securely anchored in the bone, the healing abutments are removed and final abutments are attached to the implants. These function as the core of the replacement teeth that are attached directly to the implants.
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.
