Multiple Missing Teeth

Restore Missing Teeth without Dentures

The Permanent Alternative

Are you missing several teeth in a row? Depending on where these missing teeth are in your mouth, you could be suffering from functional or esthetic issues—or both. Don’t let multiple tooth loss keep you from eating comfortably or feeling confident in your smile! Choose dental implants, the permanent alternative to removable partial dentures or damaging dental bridges. These fixed dental implant bridges are the closest thing to having all your natural teeth in place and give you the ability to eat, talk, and smile with natural-looking teeth that won’t come loose or fall out. The general dentists at Bela Family Dentistry have received extensive training in dental implants and are here to help with personalized treatment that restores function and esthetics to your smile. You don’t have to choose removable appliances or dental bridges. Get a beautiful, healthy smile back with dental implants for multiple missing teeth!

The Steps to a Dental Implant Bridge

Step 1: Personalized Consultation
We begin each of our dental implant treatments with a thorough evaluation and personalized consultation. We want to know about how your current missing teeth are affecting your life and your smile goals. This helps us tailor your treatment, but we’ll always be sure to provide you with the greatest functional and esthetic benefits. We may take 3D images of your mouth with cone beam CT technology to aid in treatment planning and help us determine if you’ll need bone grafting or other preliminary treatments. All the information we gather from your consultation and diagnostics is used to create a personalized surgical and restorative treatment plan.

Step 2: Implant Surgery
The biggest step of your implant treatment is the surgery to place your implants in your jawbone. Your comfort is our priority, so we’ll first be sure you are comfortable undergoing surgery and that you’re relaxed on the day of your appointment. We provide custom sedation to further create a comfortable experience. When you’re relaxed, we’ll complete your implant placement procedure. If you need bone grafting, these procedures can often be completed at the same time! Best of all, if we determine that the primary stability of your implants is high enough, we’ll attach a temporary bridge at this time. We only use industry-leading implant brands, including BioHorizons®, Nobel Biocare, and Straumann®, manufactured at the highest standard and level of quality. With your dental implants (and temporary bridge, if possible) in place, you’ll be able to go home the day of your surgery with a complete smile.

Step 3: Healing and Final Restoration
You’ll need between 4-6 months to fully heal after your surgery. The reason why dental implants provide permanent stability is due to how they fuse to your natural bone during healing. This “osseointegration” process ensures that your implant provides long-term strength and stability while giving your jawbone healthy stimulation as natural tooth roots do. When this healing phase is complete, you’ll return to one of our multiple offices to have your dental implants restored with a permanent dental bridge. This bridge is custom-made to fit your mouth and we’ll permanently attach it to your dental implants to restore full function. We’ll make any adjustments needed to ensure this final restoration is exactly to your liking and fits comfortably in your mouth. Now you can enjoy the esthetic and functional benefits that come from having a complete set of teeth once again!

Dental Implants Are within Your Reach

Implant supported bridges are the best way to get your smile back to normal after you’ve lost several teeth. They’ll also boost your self-confidence by restoring esthetics to your smile. For many patients, this level of transformation makes dental implant bridges well worth the higher initial cost!

We’re experienced in helping patients just like you afford dental implants and will work with your insurance to maximize any benefits you may have. We also partner with CareCredit third-party financing to provide low-interest loans with low monthly rates. Dental implant bridges are within your reach – and we’re here to help!
