Multiple Tooth Replacement
Do you have several teeth missing?
Benefits with fixed dental bridge on tooth implants:
In the case of multiple missing teeth in the back of the mouth, a fixed dental bridge anchored to tooth implants is the only true fixed alternative. Traditional dentures can’t offer the same stability or function.
Having tooth implants replacing your lost back teeth will give you new, unparalleled strength and stability that allows you to eat what you want and function normally. It will also preserve your jawbone and facial structure, preserving a more youthful appearance.
Where multiple teeth are missing, a dental bridge secured by tooth implants is:
- The only fixed alternative in this situation
- A stable, secure solution that lets you eat what you want
- The way to prevent bone loss and preserve your facial appearance
The dental implants procedure normally includes 4-5 additional visits after the initial examination until the final fixed dental bridge is permanently attached. You may experience minimal discomfort the day of your actual teeth implants procedure. You can expect to return to work or normal activity the very next day.
Dental Bridge Treatment
The Steps Of The Teeth Implants Procedure With A Dental Bridge
At New Image Dental Implant Center in Cherry Creek, we provide a specialized treatment plan that is designed specifically for each patient’s situation. What we describe here is one of several options available and can be generally explained. Through an initial complimentary consultation in our Denver office, we can better determine and explain the teeth implants procedure that is specific to you.
The first step is a consultation with a tooth implants dentist at New Image Dental Implant Center in Denver. In this example case, three teeth at the end of the jaw are missing. The only real, permanent replacement alternative is installing a fixed dental bridge. The dental bridge contains all three teeth in one piece and is anchored to tooth implants.
First, the tooth implants are placed, normally during just one appointment. A temporary dental bridge may be placed at the same time, making it possible for you to function like normal almost immediately after leaving our Cherry Creek office.
The tooth implants need to integrate with the jawbone before the permanent dental bridge is attached. This is normally done 1-2 months after the tooth implants have been placed. The time will vary, depending on the teeth affected and the esthetical demands.
Since it is secured by tooth implants, the new dental bridge will handle all the pressure that your strong, natural back teeth once did. You will have a stable and secure solution that looks natural and allows you to eat what you want and function normally.
ALTERNATIVES TO A DENTAL BRIDGE ON TOOTH IMPLANTS
Removable partial denture
A removable partial denture is often uncomfortable and a bit complicated to use. In addition, there is loss of function with a removable partial denture compared to that of natural teeth or a fixed dental bridge on tooth implants. The denture is made of plastic and metal.
Removable partials do not stop bone loss and shrinkage of the face, which will affect both your appearance and your mouth function. It can be expensive to fabricate due to its many parts. However, the installation process is simple.
If you live or work in the Denver and Boulder metro area and are missing several teeth or are currently dissatisfied with your removable partial denture, the New Image Dental Implant Center in Cherry Creek can help.
