Multiple Tooth Dental Implants – Fort Worth, TX
Rebuild a Beautiful Smile with Dental Implants
No one ever expects to lose a tooth, but an incomplete smile is a reality for many Americans. If you’ve lost two or more teeth, Dr. Givan has the solutions you need to fill the empty spaces. As an alternative to traditional treatments, our office offers the latest options using dental implants. You can enjoy the next best thing to your natural smile using an implant-supported bridge or denture.
Two Consecutive Missing Teeth
A fixed bridge is the most traditional treatment to replace two missing teeth in a row. The surfaces of the lost teeth are recreated from all ceramic material. It’s held in place by bonding dental crowns over abutment teeth. Although it’s effective, it requires you to permanently alter healthy teeth.
An implant-retained bridge allows you to preserve your natural smile. An implant post is inserted into your jaw to serve as a new root and anchors your bridge to your bone. It doesn’t rely on any natural teeth for support.
Three or More Consecutive Missing Teeth
A fixed bridge can also be used to replace 3 or more consecutive missing teeth, but you can also stabilize your bridge with a dental implant at either end. This preserves your jawbone to provide your remaining natural teeth with the support they need to stay in place. You’ll invest in a healthy smile using a long-term solution.
Multiple Missing Teeth Throughout an Arch
Significant tooth loss is traditionally treated with a partial or denture. A partial holds prosthetic teeth in a gum-colored base that has a metal framework, which allows it to clip onto your remaining teeth to support it. As an alternative, a combination of single unit implants and implant-retained bridges can rebuild your smile.
An entire arch of missing teeth can be replaced with a denture that uses suction or an adhesive to hold it in place. Although they’ve undergone several improvements, conventional dentures will always have their limitations. You can permanently eliminate slipping and irritation by stabilizing your denture with 4 to 10 dental implant posts. You’ll enjoy unmatched stability to speak, chew, and smile confidently.
