The Best Way to Replace Several Teeth

Non-Implant Tooth Replacement Options

It’s important to consider all your different options if you want to fill in the gaps in your grin. Restorations that don’t involve implants include:

  • Crown and Bridge: This is typically used to replace one to three missing teeth in a row. The bridge is made of two crowns that hold the prosthetic tooth or teeth between them; by cementing the crowns onto the healthy teeth adjacent to the gap, your smile can be repaired without invasive surgery.
  • Partial Dentures: If there are several teeth missing in different parts of your mouth, you can consider partial dentures. Partials are attached to the teeth with a metal clip or clasp and fits into your smile much like a puzzle piece.
  • Full Dentures: We use full dentures when an entire row of teeth is gone. The prosthetic teeth rest on a flexible, gum-colored base that stays attached to your real gums through natural suction or denture adhesive.

The Dental Implant Process

Partial Dentures

It takes multiple visits spread out over several months to get dental implants. First, we’ll need to take X-rays of your mouth to figure out the ideal placement for your implant posts. (In some cases, such as when getting implant-retained full dentures, remaining teeth in the arch will need to be extracted first.) Depending on the density of your jawbone and your overall oral health, we might need to plan for bone grafts and other additional treatments.

During implant surgery, we’ll make small incisions in your gums and insert however many implant posts are needed to support the type of dental prosthetic that we’ve selected. Once your mouth has healed and the implants are strong enough, your implant will be topped with a crown, bridge, or denture.
