Multiple missing teeth can really put a damper on your life. Whether your missing teeth are adjacent or not, we can make your smile complete again with dental implants.
If you find yourself thinking about the gap in your teeth constantly, it’s time you fill it. Our experienced implant dentists can make it easy for you to get a secure and beautiful smile again.
Multiple single dental implants in different parts of your mouth can be used to replace teeth you lost. You’ll simply undergo multiple single dental implant procedures.
Implant-supported bridges are an option for adjacent missing teeth and they’re more secure than traditional bridges or partial dentures. Traditional bridges require two of your natural teeth to be prepared for crowns and often have wires. Partial dentures are fully removable, so they’re not secured to your mouth in any way.
Our permanent multiple tooth replacement option uses a dental implant to create a solid bond with your jawbone, ensuring your bridge won’t come out. That means no worrying about what you can and can’t eat or about taking it out for cleaning.
The first step of your implant procedure is to have a consultation with one of our implant dentists. At your consultation, your doctor will conduct an examination as well as take x-rays of your mouth and jaw to ensure dental implants are the best solution for you.
If your dentist determines that dental implants are a good fit, you can begin the process. If you require a supplemental procedure, your dentist will let you know.
The first part of the dental implant that’s placed is the fixture. Made of titanium, the fixture will integrate with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration.
You’ll have to spend some months healing and letting your bone tissue do the work, but after your fixture is secure you can come back to receive the rest of your implant. Your beautiful new color-matched teeth will fit right in with your smile.
