Multiple Teeth Replacement with Dental Implants

Several Teeth Missing

Benefits with fixed bridge on implants:

In this case, when replacing three teeth in the far 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 help preserve your jawbone and facial appearance.

  • The only fixed alternative in this situation.
  • A stable, secure solution that lets you eat what you want
  • Preserves your facial appearance and prevents bone loss

Treatment

After the initial examination at Periodontal Associates, you can expect 4-5 additional visits until the final fixed bridge is permanently attached. Any discomfort is usually treated with an ordinary analgesic. You should expect to be able to work the next day.

Installing the fixed bridge step-by-step:

The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult your periodontist to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.

1: Before the procedure

2: Installing the implant

3: Attaching the bridge

4: End result

1: Before the procedure

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

2: Installing the implant

First, the implants are placed in the mouth. This is normally done in a single session with local anesthetic. 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.

3: Attaching the bridge

The implants need to fuse with the jawbone before the permanent bridge is attached. This is normally done 3 months after the implant installation. The time will vary, depending on the teeth affected and the aesthetic demands.

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. Implants cannot get cavities and are resistant to gum disease.

    Had a graft done by Dr Verseman (probably misspelled) He was understanding and compassionate. The graft was successful and the after care was great. I just started doing regular cleanings here and am happy to be cleaned by Alison. Thanks Guys!!!

    I highly recommend Dr. Heller and everyone associated with Periodontal Associates. From the moment I walked in, through the entire several month process of receiving a dental implant, I was made to feel totally comfortable. As a somewhat nervous patient, this was so important to me! Every step of the process was explained to me and my questions were welcomed and answered. Dr. Heller is very personable, extremely competent, and thoughtful. I’m so grateful that I was referred to him, and I’m very happy with my implant.

    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....

    I've been seen by Dr Beckmann since he joined the practice. I know he and his staff truly care about their patients and their dental health. Very...
