Replace multiple missing teeth.
Dr. Alger and your dentist may use dental implants to provide a strong foundation for replacing a row of missing teeth.
How are dental implants used to replace several missing teeth?
In the event that a patient is missing three or more teeth, dental implants may be used to support a bridge. Using multiple implants to replace the roots of missing teeth, an implant-supported bridge is a free standing solution to replace lost teeth.
What are the benefits of multiple tooth implants?
Using dental implants to replace a series of missing teeth has several advantages. These benefits include:
- Looks, feels and functions like natural teeth
- Helps to preserve bone by replacing tooth roots
- Does not rely on adjacent teeth for support
- Increases stability and comfort
- Restores natural chewing capacity
Following implant placement, a patient will be advised in proper care for their implant-supported bridges. Routine visits to the dentist, brushing and flossing are vital habits to develop to ensure the long-term success of a patient’s treatment.
