Multiple Teeth Implants
When the three or more teeth 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.
Course of treatment
BEFORE THE PROCEDURE
Three teeth at back end of the mouth are missing. The only real replacement alternative is installing a fixed implant bridge. The bridge contains all teeth in one piece and is anchored on dental implants.
INSTALLING THE IMPLANT
Implants used to support a bridge are placed and allowed to surrounding bone in the same manner as a single tooth implant. After the appropriate healing time, healing abutments are placed on each implant to allow contouring of the tissue.
ATTACHING THE NEW BRIDGE
When the implant is securely anchored in the bone, the healing abutments are removed and final abutments are attached to the implants. These function as the core of the replacement teeth that are attached directly to the implants.
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.
