Multiple Missing Teeth - Augusta, GA

Do You Have an Incomplete Smile?

You Don’t Have to Choose Dentures

In the past having several missing teeth meant you had to get a removable partial denture or a fixed dental bridge supported by other healthy teeth. Dentures are a common solution, but they can’t restore full oral function and they’re also predisposed to slippage. Bridges eliminate gaps left by missing teeth, but since they lack natural roots or implant posts, they can affect the health of neighboring teeth. Fortunately, today we have a better option that can both completely restore your dental function and also keep adjoining teeth and bone healthy. They absolutely look amazing, too! Introducing dental implants in Augusta, GA.

Implant supported bridges have over time become the solution of choice for patients who are missing numerous teeth. While standard bridges compel you to have adjacent teeth filed down, dental implant bridges are attached onto dental implant posts which are permanently implanted in your jawbone, making for a secure, reliable fit. These implants replace your natural tooth roots and don’t compromise adjacent teeth, letting you eat normally and protect your jaw. Within just one appointment, our accomplished, experienced team can insert your dental implants in Augusta, GA, crown them, and send you off with a remarkable, healthy smile. Bela Family Dentistry has changed the lives of innumerable patients who have dealt with multiple tooth loss. We can offer the same results to you with implant supported bridges.

Three Stages to Rebuild Your Complete Smile

Stage 1: Consultation
During a customized one-hour consultation we will talk about all of your options and establish if you’re eligible for an Augusta, GA dental implants solution. Every consultation includes an evaluation of your dental health and a determination of your individual smile goals. The majority of patients with multiple missing teeth do qualify for dental implants. In some situations, other treatments may be required before implants can be placed. With low-radiation CT scanning equipment, we’ll capture 3D images of your mouth that allow us to see exactly what’s going on beneath your gums and bone and create a treatment plan specifically for you. Some medical conditions can raise the likelihood of complications after dental implant placement, so we’ll take your medical history into account as well.

Stage 2: Implant Placement
When you arrive for your dental implant placement, we’ll start by making you comfortable with the proper level of sedation. This hinges on your degree of anxiety and the complexity of your case. Rest assured we offer many options to keep you pain-free such as IV sedation, which essentially allows you to sleep through your whole procedure! Before we begin placement, we’ll also perform any tooth extractions necessary to remove irreparably decayed teeth and any bone grafting to rebuild a deteriorated jawbone. We’re usually able to perform these the same day as your implant placement, depending upon the condition of your jaw. In some cases, the treatment site may need to heal for up to four months before we place your implants to deliver the desired results.

During placement, we will surgically introduce a small number of durable implant posts into your jawbone. During this procedure we take several factors into consideration, including the health of your bone, the location of your dental nerves, and the esthetics of your mouth. We use top-quality implants from major manufacturers in the industry and will choose the type based on your personalized goals and unique needs. After placement, we’re normally able to affix a temporary dental implant bridge before giving you some time to recuperate. In this instance, you’ll be able to leave our Augusta, GA office the very same day with fully working, beautiful temporary teeth that will empower you to enjoy a normal life again not long after!

Stage 3: Restoration
You will heal for up to six months with your provisional bridge before we place your personalized final bridge. During those months, your implants will gradually fuse with your jawbone forming a permanent bond. In the meantime, you’ll have a full smile, and be able to eat most types of food, speak without difficulty, and carry out other daily activities without embarrassment or concern. We’ll monitor the progress of your recovery from time to time to ensure it stays on track. When you’re entirely healed, we’ll have you come in so we can place your final implant supported bridge. This is comprised of detaching the temporary bridge and attaching the final bridge firmly to the implant posts. We’ll make sure it fits snuggly and securely, and that you’re pleased with how your teeth look before you leave.
