Multiple Teeth Replacement

SEVERAL TEETH MISSING

Benefits with fixed bridge on implants:
When replacing three teeth in the far back of the mouth, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the only fixed alternative. Traditional dentures cannot offer the same stability or function.
 

Replacing your lost back teeth with dental implants will give you new, unparalleled strength and stability that will allow you to eat what you like. It will also preserve your jawbone and facial appearance.

  • The only fixed alternative in this situation
  • A stable, secure solution that allows you eat what you like
  • Preserves your facial appearance and prevents bone loss

Treatment:
After the initial examination, you can expect four to five additional visits until your final fixed bridge is permanently attached. It is normal to experience some minor bruising and swelling of the gums and soft tissues afterwards. Any discomfort is usually treated with an ordinary painkiller. You should expect to be able to work the next day.

COURSE OF TREATMENT

INSTALLING THE FIXED BRIDGE – STEP-BY-STEP

The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult your dentist to find the best solution for you given your specific condition.

     
1: Before the procedure
In this case, three teeth at the back end of the mouth are missing. The only real replacement alternative is to install a fixed bridge. The bridge contains all the teeth on one piece and is anchored on dental implants.
  2: Installing the implant
First, the implants are installed. This is normally done in a single session. A temporary bridge may be placed at the same time, which will make it possible for you to function like normal almost immediately after leaving the dentist.
     
3: Attaching the bridge
The implants need to integrate with the jawbone before the permanent bridge is attached. This is normally done one to two months after the implant installation. The time will vary depending on the teeth affected and the esthetic demands.
  4: End result
The new bridge will be able to handle the same amount of pressure that your strong, natural back teeth did. You will have a stable and secure solution that allows you to eat what you like.


 

ALTERNATIVES TO FIXED BRIDGE

  Removable partial denture
This alternative is often perceived as uncomfortable and a bit complicated to use. Its function cannot be compared to that of a bridge. This denture is made of plastic and metal, which also affects its look. It is quite expensive to fabricate due to its many parts. However, the installation process is simple, and natural teeth are spared.
