Multiple Tooth Dental Implants

There are several benefits to replacing multiple missing teeth with a fixed bridge on implants. Under the circumstances of replacing three teeth in the far back of the mouth, a fixed bridge attached to dental implants is the only fixed option. Traditional dentures cannot provide the same function and stability.
Replacing your back teeth with dental implants allows patients to eat whatever they desire as they provide superb stability and strength. Moreover, patients’ facial and jawbone structure and appearance are conserved.

  • The sole fixed prothesis option for this condition
  • Ability to eat what normally with a stable, secure prothesis
  • Prevents bone loss and preserves facial structure

Multiple Tooth Dental Implant Treatment Process

Following the initial examination at Periodontal Associates, our Littleton / Aurora multiple tooth dental implant patients should allocate time for 4-5 additional visits until the final fixed bridge is permanently placed. After this appointment you should not experience discomfort and return to work the next day, If you do experience discomfort it will be treated immediately with an ordinary analgesic.

Step-by-step fixed bridge installation

Courses of treatment are dependent on the tooth and patient. Be sure to consult with our periodontist to determine which plan of action is best for you and your specific condition. The following treatment course is one of several options you may be presented

1: Before the procedure
2: Installing the implant
3: Attaching the bridge
4: End result
1: Before the procedure
In the back of your mouth three teeth are missing or need to be removed. The only permanent replacement option is placing a fixed bridge in that area. The fixed bridge is attached to dental implants and encompasses all the missing teeth in one piece.
2: Installing the implant
The first step is placing the dental implants in the mouth with local anesthetic in one appointment. A temporary bridge will also be placed in order for the patient to function normally immediately after the appointment.
3: Attaching the bridge
After approximately 3 months, the implants and jawbone will fuse together. This timeline may vary by patient, the teeth affected, and the aesthetic demands. Once the implants and the jawbone are fused the permanent bridge is placed.
4: End result
The new fixed bridge will function as natural back teeth and provide a stable and secure solution that allows you to eat what you want and manage all pressures associated. Gum disease and cavities will not occur where the implant bridge is placed.

Full Arch Replacement With Dental Implants

Another option is full arch replacement when all of the teeth in the upper and/or lower jaw are missing.

An implant-supported prosthesis is the most ideal route to comfortably replace the missing teeth if a patient is missing all their teeth or in a condition that they need to be removed and restored.

In the past there were no options available as a fixed prothesis solution. Fortunately, today our Aurora / Littleton multiple tooth dental implant experts are able to replace a full jaw with dental implants and a prosthesis that provides a permanent, firm and highly visually appealing result.

Full arch replacement with dental implants offers the following benefits:

  • Lets patients eat normally and function just like natural teeth
  • Are a solid, stable solution that are expected to last a lifetime
  • Preserve your facial appearance and aid in preventing further bone loss

Depending on the specific patient’s conditions the treatment procedures and number of appointments vary largely. Typically, 8-10 visits should be sufficient to have a full tooth replacement installed. The comfort level has been reported as much better than anticipated by several patients after the procedure is completed.

    I've had the best experience with this office. I have had some terrible experiences in the pass with different places. They made me feel comfortable and I couldn't have a better team to tend to all my dental needs. They take the time to really care by reaching out to check on you, and getting your emergency taken care asap even during a pandemic.

  • Hollie KarrHollie Karr

    Warm and very friendly environment. They take so much time to explain things and treat you as if you were one of their family members having a procedure done. Michelle the dental hygienist, Liz the technician, as well as Stephanie, Dr Beckman’s assistant go above and beyond to make you feel like you’re they’re only patient! Dr. Beckman and his team’s demeanor make you feel at ease and relaxed. Dr. Beckman always has a calm, patient, and very caring demeanor which very clearly trickles down to his staff! Thank you for all you do!

    Love the teamwork here! Talk about having fun while going to the dentist, yes it is true. You can have fun and get great work done. Whenever I need anything done the team from Periodontal Associates is there. I am thrilled to leave a review for this group of dentist. They are simply amazing

    I needed an implant on one of my rear molars, and Dr. Thousand and his team did the implant work at the Aurora office. I had to do the procedure with minimal sedation due to the fact that I had to drive myself back to work after the procedure. Despite this, there was minimal pain and discomfort, and everyone did an incredible job. He's very good about telling you what he's doing and is very detail-oriented. He is never dismissive and always takes time to answer questions.

    After everything healed up I went to my regular dentist to have the crown installed. After the crown placement I had a terrible headache and toothache for a week before my regular dentist would see me again to adjust the crown. However, even after she made some adjustments I was still in pain the next day.

    I didn’t know what else to do so I reached back out to Dr. Thousand for help even though he wasn’t responsible for the crown. Knowing that I was in acute pain they were able to get me in the same day at the Littleton office. Turns out there were some major defects on the crown that my dentist had overlooked that contributed to the acute pain, and would have likely resulted in infection down the road. Dr. Thousand spent almost an hour working with me and modifying the crown for temporary use so that I could have it placed back over the implant while a new crown is made.

    He didn’t need to do this since this wasn’t a mistake attributable to his office, but he and his team went above and beyond, and didn’t even charge me for the work. I had been in so much pain I could barely focus, and so this help meant so much to me because I could now function again. This was at the end of their day so I’m sure it meant a later day for everyone, but I can’t thank you all enough for giving me that relief. We’ll certainly be coming here for future dental issues, and referring Dr. Thousand and his team to friends.

    Professional, knowledgeable, friendly, on time visits. Superb work from the office team to Dr Heller & Erin. Thank You

  • Melissa H.Melissa H.

    Let's be honest here - there is nothing fun about having gum surgery. However, the staff and Dr. Heller were as good as it gets with regard to my treatment....

  • Bridget B.Bridget B.

    Wow, from the moment I walked in I felt welcome. Super nice people and caring. I am a chicken and do not like dentist anything. Doctor Heller explained...

  • Sara KluhsmanSara Kluhsman

    Dr. Thousand is pure genius! He fixed a failing implant & placed a new 1 as well. I will never go anywhere else. That man preforms miracles!

  • Karen Pelling LevineKaren Pelling Levine

    Dr. Doug Heller is one of three of the doctors that make up the driving force in my efforts to save my teeth and my overall health. What started out as one broken tooth led to the possibility of my losing all of my teeth to gum disease. Panicked, I reached for a second opinion and found Dr. Heller, along with my regular Dentist & Orthodontist. I am now the proud owner of only 5 implants, as opposed to full upper and lower implants OR full dentures. Though dental procedures are hardly fun, Dr. Heller and his staff have made it a smooth process, from financial to face-changing....I couldn't be happier. 😁 You be the judge. My profile pic, there on the left, is a fine example of their handiwork.
    Double Bonus: Doorbell just rang. Beautiful plant has just arrived to cheer me in my recovery....Thank you, Dr. Heller and your wonderful Staff!

    I was sent to Dr. Beckman on a referral from my dentist because of a slightly loose tooth. Dr. Beckman evaluated the situation and recommended a gum graft and bite adjustment. It is now six weeks since the procedure, and while the recovery was not painless, it was pretty much exactly as he said it would be. Upon evaluation earlier this week it was clear that the procedure was successful.

    Dr. Beckman and the staff were very nice, supportive and professional and I would highly recommend this practice to anyone needing this kind of help.

  • Tori Horton HamillTori Horton Hamill

    Dr Beckman performed a gum graft. I was nervous, but he explained everything clearly and thoroughly. The staff were very accommodating when I had to reschedule and they keep the schedule flowing on time so I was not sitting and waiting beyond the appointment time. The only downside was having to ask multiple times about the cost and what my calculated out of pocket would be. Would definitely recommend.

  • Ashley SingletaryAshley Singletary

    5 stars! Dr. Beckman and the entire office staff provide superior customer service and care. I recently had a gum graft performed and from the very first meeting I felt at ease. Dr. Beckman took his time explaining the procedure and patiently answered any questions I had. On the day of the procedure they go the extra mile to make sure you are comfortable- they use top of the line medical treatment for an effective procedure and speedy recovery. The team was very supportive and available through the entire process and even calls to check on you post procedure. I highly recommend Dr. Beckman and his team!

  • Doris BinderDoris Binder

    I needed to get some implants and Dr. Heller was recommended. Thankfully, he was absolutely wonderful. I wasn't sure what to expect, but he explained everything that needed be done and the procedure began. Now it's not an over night process, but the weeks after each step was a piece of cake. I am so happy with my implants. I had to have a tooth pulled a few weeks ago, and I don't know how he does it, but I had zero pain, no complications and I needed no pain Meds. The staff is so friendly and I highly recommend them.

    Dr. Beckman and the staff couldn't have been nicer or more professional. I highly recommend the practice to anyone in need of a periodontist.

    Dr. Beckman and the entire staff at Periodontal Associates are amazing! Dr. Beckman performed a gum graft procedure on me and to my surprise and relief I felt no pain. Not during the procedure or post op. The entire experience from consult through my last follow up appointment was topnotch.

  • Terry SandahlTerry Sandahl

    I have been a patient of first Dr. Versman and then Dr. Heller for over 20 years. This is an amazing periodontal group! I feel so comfortable having them take care of my needs~and there have been many! Dr. Heller is so easy going and I never feel like whatever he does will fail. They have a great support staff too! All their assistants are competent and friendly, and my hygienist Michelle is the best! Love these guys and wouldn't think of going anywhere else!

  • Holly DeLuise BodineHolly DeLuise Bodine

    I have some complicated dental issues but Dr. Heller and his team have handled them very well, and as painlessly as is possible. Dr. Heller explains things very thoroughly!
