Multiple Teeth Replacement

Multiple Teeth Replacement

Explained by a Dental Implant Dentist in San Diego

Are you missing several teeth? Whether your tooth loss was the result of natural tooth decay, gum disease or injury, you are probably missing having a complete set of healthy teeth. Having all of your teeth goes beyond allowing you to speak clearly and enjoy the foods you love; it has a lot to do with one's personal image and confidence. When we have several missing teeth, it's hard for other people not to notice and it can lead to discomfort when smiling and meeting new people.

If you have several missing teeth, it's important for you to know that there are solutions available that can give you back your beautiful smile. Missing teeth may be replaced with multiple single-tooth implant restorations. If you are missing multiple teeth due to trauma or because of gum disease or tooth decay, dental implants are an excellent solution. Dental implants are ideal because they prevent the need to alter your existing healthy teeth and they have the look and feel of natural teeth.

Replacing Missing Teeth with a Fixed Bridge: Step By Step

#1: Before the Procedure: If you are missing multiple teeth, the only real alternative will be a fixed bridge.

#2: Installing the Implant: The implants and a temporary bridge are installed, usually at the same time.

#3: Attaching the Bridge: The permanent bridge is usually attached 1 to 2 months after your implants are installed.

#4: The Final Result: The new bridge will function like natural teeth, allowing you to eat what you want.

As we age, we cannot ignore the fact that our teeth are prone to the natural process of deterioration. Even when we adapt to a healthy diet and exercise regimen, after years of use, teeth can get worn down, chipped or cracked. Even if you were diligent about your home care regimen and getting your semi-annual cleanings, you can lose teeth as you grow older. Replacing missing teeth is not only important for your overall health, but it can make a dramatic difference in the way you look and feel.
