Multiple Tooth Replacement

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 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, you can expect 4-5 additional visits until the final fixed bridge is permanently attached. It is normal to experience some minor bruising and swelling in the gum and soft tissue afterwards. Any discomfort is usually treated with an ordinary painkiller. You should expect to be able to work the next day.

COURSE OF TREATMENT

INSTALLING THE FIXED BRIDGE– STEP-BY-STEP

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

1: Before the procedure

Three teeth at back end of the mouth are missing. The only real 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 installed. This is normally done in a single session. 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 integrate with the jawbone before the permanent bridge is attached. This is normally done 1-2 months after the implant installation. The time will vary, depending on the teeth affected and the esthetical 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.

ALTERNATIVES TO FIXED BRIDGE

Removable partial denture

This alternative is often perceived as uncomfortable and a bit complicated to use. Function can’t be compared to that of a bridge. This denture is made of plastic and metal, which affects its look. It is quite expensive to fabricate due to its many parts. However, the installation process is simple, and natural teeth are spared.

I am so happy that I found Upland Dental Group. I had been struggling trying to find a dentist that had a pleasant staff, caring and professional... dentists and an all-around good place to come for exceptional dental work. I have found the staff at Upland Dental to be very caring, accommodating and diligent in making every experience a good one. Going to the dentist has always been something that I would put off for as long as I could, but at Upland Dental I appreciate the way that everything is explained and each procedure is performed in the most comfortable way possible. And the results have been amazing. Thank you all for taking good care of me!!read more
