There are a few different ways to address the loss of multiple teeth in one area of your mouth. A removable partial denture can replace some of your basic oral function. However, it will never be able to replicate the full strength of your original teeth.
Fortunately, recent advancements in dental restoration technology now make it possible to fully restore the missing teeth with a dental implant supported bridge.
Dr. Will Allen will start by examining the area to assess the existing bone structure in the area. If there are any issues with the underlying bone structure, he might recommend having a bone graft performed in advance of the dental implant treatment.
After any structural concerns have been addressed, Dr. Will Allen can install two titanium dental implants in a single appointment. You will need to be sedated for this appointment and a friend or family member will need to drive you home afterward.
Once Dr. Will Allen has inserted the dental implants and they fully integrate with the existing bone tissues, he can start the process of fitting you for a dental bridge. Once it has been cemented in place the implant supported dental bridge will fully replicate the strength and appearance of your original teeth.
