Multiple Tooth Replacement – Evansville, WI
Stabilize Your Bridge with Dental Implants
Every tooth is essential for a healthy, functional smile. Losing even one can create many complications but several missing teeth can be devastating to your oral health and your quality of life. Thankfully, you don’t need to live with the insecurities of an incomplete smile. Our office offers the latest solutions to fill the space of multiple missing teeth. Besides traditional treatments, we also offer the latest innovations using dental implants.
Two Consecutive Missing Teeth
Traditionally, two missing teeth in a row are replaced using a fixed bridge. Your dentist takes an impression of the mouth to create the portions of the teeth visible above the gum line. The bridge is held in place by bonding dental crowns to the adjacent teeth. Although this is effective, you will need to permanently alter healthy teeth.
As an alternative, you can use a dental implant to serve as a new tooth root while also anchoring your bridge to your jawbone. Since it doesn’t rely on healthy teeth for support, it preserves your natural smile.
Three or More Consecutive Missing Teeth
A bridge and crowns can also be used to fill the space of several missing teeth in a row. They are made of all-ceramic material to look and feel natural, but a fixed bridge will always have its limitations. An implant-supported bridge resolves those disadvantages.
A dental implant is used at either end to support the bridge. This provides unmatched support and stability, so you can enjoy your favorite foods again.
Multiple Missing Teeth Throughout an Arch
If you’ve lost many teeth throughout an arch, there are several ways to replace your missing teeth, like a partial or denture. A partial consists of prosthetic teeth, a gum-colored base, and a metal framework to fill the empty spaces. A full arch of missing teeth can be treated with a traditional denture, which is held to your gum tissue using suction or an adhesive. Although both methods have been used for decades, there are other options using dental implants.
Single unit posts and implant-supported bridges can rebuild an incomplete smile if you still have a couple of healthy teeth left. Your restorations are customized to match your natural teeth to blend in seamlessly when you smile.
You can also use 4 to 10 implant posts to anchor your denture to your jawbone. You’ll never need to worry about any slipping or irritation to provide a close replica of your natural smile.
