Replacing several teeth
If you have lost several teeth there are two solutions: separate crowns on dental implants or a bridge attached to several dental implants.
Some people loose teeth in the back or front of the mouth. This is typically caused by gum infection (periodontitis) or by teeth cracking due to previous fillings.
Between two and four dental implants are installed for a dental implant bridge. This solution does not affect your own teeth thus preserving your existing health teeth. The bridge will function for many years, regardless of the condition of your existing teeth.
Abutments are then attached to the dental implants. The next step is to fit your bridge; the new set of teeth is placed on the abutments.
The dental implant bridge is now in place and can withstand the strong chewing forces that occur in the back of the mouth. It feels and functions like natural teeth and means you can eat anything.
