Implants as a Replacement for Several Teeth

If you lack multiple teeth, implant-supported bridges can replace them. Dental implants replace your lost natural teeth and some roots.

A great option for multiple missing teeth. As a permanent solution, you will be able to chew comfortably again.

What are the advantages of implant-supported bridges over fixed bridges or removable partial dentures?

Dental implants offer several advantages over other denture options. Implant-supported bridges not only look like natural teeth and also work like them, but also replace the teeth without the support of neighboring natural teeth. Other universal treatments for the loss of multiple teeth, such as fixed bridges or removable partial dentures, rely on the support of adjacent teeth.

Since implant-supported fixed bridges and dentures replace some of your tooth roots, your bone is also better protected. At regular dentures, the bone that previously surrounded the roots of the teeth begins to dissolve. Dental implants integrate into your jawbone and help keep the bone healthy and intact.

In the long run, implants are aesthetically pleasing, operative, and serene. Gums and bones may move away around a fixed bridge or demountable incomplete prosthesis and leave a clear glitch. The loss of bone tissue related to regular dentures leads to a reduction in the jawbone and the appearance of a sunken, bad-looking smile. The cement with which bridges are attached can be washed out so that bacteria can attack the teeth that anchor the bridge. In addition, removable prostheses in the mouth can slip and limit the ability to eat certain foods.

 

 

How Are The Implants Used?

Implants are initially placed in the jaw that look like screws or cylinders. Over the next two to three months, the implants and the bones can grow together and thus form the anchorage for your artificial teeth. During this time, a provisional denture can be worn over the implant sites.

A second step of the procedure is often required to expose the implants and apply extensions. These provisional healing caps, along with various fasteners that can be used to attach multiple crowns to the implants, form the foundation on which your new teeth will stand. After this procedure, your gums must heal for a few weeks.

There are some implant systems ( premature ) where this second step is not necessary. These systems use an implant to which the extension piece is already attached. Your periodontologist will advise you which system is best for you.

Depending on the number of implants placed, the connecting device that will hold your new teeth can be screwed onto the implant, or it is attached to a bridge or a round ball anchor, on which a prosthesis snaps in and out.

Finally, full bridges or full dentures are made for you, which are attached to small metal posts, the so-called abutments, or connecting elements. After some time, you will be sure of your smile and your ability to chew and speak.

Each case is different, and some of these steps can be combined if the conditions
