Dental Implants

  • Replacing Several Teeth With Implants

    In certain cases a bridge anchored to dental implants may be the only fixed solution for the replacement of missing teeth. Traditional partial dentures simply cannot offer the same stability or function, particularly for the teeth in the back of the mouth.

    Having dental implants replace your lost back teeth will give your new teeth unparalleled strength and stability, allowing you to eat what you want. The dental implants will also help preserve your jawbone and facial appearance.

    Benefits of a fixed bridge on implants:

    • The only fixed alternative for teeth in the back of the mouth
    • A stable, secure solution that lets you eat what you want
    • Preserves your facial appearance and helps prevent bone loss

    Installing The Fixed Bridge – Step-By-Step
    The course of treatment described here is one of several options available.

    • Before the procedure: Dr. Sirakian conducts a thorough evaluation and outlines a treatment plan to review with you. In this case, three teeth at the back end of the mouth will be replaced by a fixed bridge anchored firmly in place by dental implants. This restoration will contain all teeth in one piece.
    • Installing the implant: First, the implants are installed. This is normally done in a single session, at which time a temporary bridge may be placed, enabling you to eat and function like normal while waiting for the permanent bridge to be installed.
    • Attaching the bridge: The permanent bridge is attached after the implants are given time to integrate with the jawbone. This is normally done a few months after the implants are placed, but this can vary, depending on the teeth affected.
    • End result: The new bridge can withstand as much pressure as your natural back teeth did. Your stable and secure new teeth will be virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth and will allow you to eat what you want.

    Alternatives To A Fixed Bridge:

    Removable partial denture
    Patients often find removable partial dentures uncomfortable and somewhat complicated to use. Function can’t be compared to that of a bridge. This denture is made of plastic and metal, which affects its appearance. A removable partial denture typically relies on clasps that hook on the natural teeth. This is both unattractive and in the long run damages the teeth involved.
