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
2: Installing the implant
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.
