Multiple Missing Teeth - Newberry, SC
Multiple Teeth Missing?
Dentures and Bridges Are Solutions of the Past
Partial dentures were the primary method of replacing missing teeth for so many years that even today some people still believe dentures are their only option. Dentures and partials remain an acceptable and economical way to replace lost or soon-to-be lost teeth. They do have their limitations, however. They don’t provide fully reliable performance when you’re eating or speaking, for example. They can slip out of place, even with support from adhesives, making for embarrassing or frustrating situations. And that’s just a short-term concern. Because dentures don’t have roots or their artificial equivalent, they’re not only less stable, they can also allow the “unused” jawbone underneath to deteriorate, putting other teeth at risk of falling out. We provide dental implants in Newberry, SC to help you avoid these issues.
At Bela Family Dentistry, our team is extensively skilled and experienced in restoring smiles that look great, feel great, function normally, and preserve the health of the teeth and bone that make them possible. We achieve this with implant supported bridges, which add the advantage of dental implants—a secure attachment to the jawbone—to the equation. Conventional bridges often require you to have some of your healthy teeth partially filed down in order to fit over your gums. What’s more, upper dentures are usually secured by at least a portion of an artificial palate, resulting in the loss of some of the taste sensation and tactile experience of eating. Why lose anything when implant supported bridges can return all the function of your mouth and bring greater confidence?

The Implant Supported Bridge Process—Start to Finish
Begin with a Consultation
Continue with Dental Implant Placement
After anesthesia and supplemental procedures, we’ll surgically insert the durable implant posts into your jawbone. The number of posts varies, but we always use as few as possible to reduce the number of insertion sites while providing for optimal implant stability. We position the posts so as to give you the best fit while using the strongest area of bone and avoiding damage to the dental nerves. Our implants are made by renowned names like BioHorizons®, Nobel Biocare, and Straumann®. While you may not know these names, the important point to understand is that these are the top implant manufacturers. That means you know you’re getting the best quality. With placement completed, we can typically attach a temporary dental implant bridge in the same appointment to enable you to eat, speak, laugh, and smile without those unsightly gaps!
Finish with Restorations
