Multiple Tooth Dental Implant
If you’re missing multiple adjacent teeth, the best way to replace them is with an implant-supported bridge. The basics of this procedure consists of two or more dental implants drilled into your jawbone at both ends of the jaw ridge with the missing teeth. Once this is done and the implants have integrated with your existing bone, your general dentist will have you fitted for a dental bridge, which is created with three or more porcelain or ceramic teeth.
Dental implant retained bridges are more effective than any type of other alternative, such as fixed tooth bridges or partial dentures. Fixed tooth-borne bridges necessitate the mutilation of adjacent teeth to accommodate the bridge. Partial dentures are removable appliances that can be ill-fitting and stimulate a gag reflex in some patients.
