Need to Replace Multiple Missing Teeth?
Dental implants, in recent years, have become a widely used alternative to bridges and dentures. The convenience of care, natural appearance, and permanence realized by patients have contributed to the popularity of the dental implant procedure. In many cases, dental implants can be used to successfully replace a tooth or teeth with far less change in lifestyle for a patient than other dental restoration alternatives.
Replacing Missing Teeth with a Bridge Supported by Dental Implants
When using dental implants in the support structure for a bridge, titanium posts are placed strategically as anchors at any point in the undesired space. Abutments are attached to these posts and a group of joined crowns are used to form the bridge. The crowns that lie in support sites will fit onto the teeth implants. In between the implants, in the remaining space, the crowns not attached to posts are designed to maintain the appearance of natural teeth and their position, preventing other teeth from shifting.
For those patients requiring a full set of arches, it is possible to support dentures with dental implants in upper or lower jaws, also known as implant dentures. There are many options available for patients who have suffered the loss of single, multiple, or all of their teeth.
