Occasionally, several teeth in a row are missing or failing. They can easily be replaced with an implant bridge, where a span of several prosthetic teeth is securely anchored to just two dental implants. The treatment is highly reliable and easy to tolerate. Patients can often leave the office with a new smile on the day of their treatment, avoiding the inconvenience and social stigma of missing multiple teeth.
Dental implants can be an ideal solution for single teeth replacement, multiple teeth replacement, or the entire set of teeth. Multiple tooth implants provide several advantages over fixed bridges and removable partial dentures. Like all dental implants, they look and function like your natural teeth. They are also independent of neighboring “natural” teeth, meaning they do not rely on them for support. Other common treatments for losing multiple teeth depend on adjacent teeth’ support. Another major advantage is that multiple-tooth dental implants don’t require time-consuming maintenance with removable dentures. Dentures must be removed and cleaned after eating and soaked overnight. Instead, multiple teeth dental implants require only the same daily brushing and flossing routines recommended for natural teeth.
