Multiple Teeth

AAID_Fig6_colorReplacing multiple teeth using dental implants with individual crowns or with an implant-supported fixed bridge gives your teeth a level of fit, feel and functionality that is not possible with other treatment options. The process is often completed over multiple visits:

  • Consultation and planning, including initial exam, imaging of your teeth, questions about your dental and medical history, and discussion of your treatment options.
  • Placement of the dental implants that will be used to support your replacement teeth. Temporary teeth can be placed while the dental implant integrates with your natural bone to form a strong foundation for your replacement teeth. Most people return to work the next day, and any discomfort can typically be treated with commonly used pain medication.
  • Placement of the abutments, or a small extension that will help connect your replacement teeth, on top of each implant, if needed.
  • Placement of a fixed, implant-supported bridge, or custom-made replacement teeth (crowns).
