SEVERAL TEETH MISSING

The ability to comfortably chew, enjoy and digest your food can be hampered when multiple teeth are missing. A great fixed alternative in a situation such as this is implant treatment.  With this in mind, the two solutions available include individual, separate crowns on dental implants or a bridge attached to two or more dental implants.  Neither of these options requires grinding down adjacent teeth or utilizing clasps to hold a removable partial denture in place.  Having dental implants replacing your lost back teeth will give you new, unparalleled strength and stability that allows you to eat what you want. They also help preserve your jawbone and facial appearance.

Benefits of replacing several missing teeth with implant supported crowns:

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

COURSE OF TREATMENT

INSTALLING THE FIXED BRIDGE– STEP-BY-STEP

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

 

1: Before the procedure

The dentist makes a first examination and takes one or more x-rays of the area to prepare for the procedure.

2: Installing the implants

The implants are installed. At this time, a temporary bridge or a provisional (temporary) appliance is provided.  The implants will need a few months to integrate with the jawbone before the next step is taken.


3: Attaching the new teeth

The final step is the placement of the permanent ceramic teeth.

4: End result

You will have a stable and secure solution that allows you to eat what you want.
