Loss of teeth in the back of the mouth, often due to gum infection (periodontitis) or cracked teeth from previous fillings, can lead to bone loss and misalignment of teeth and the jaw. Rapid closure of a gap involving multiple teeth is crucial, not only for functional reasons but also from a medical perspective.

The number of implants used is determined by individual circumstances. Implant-borne bridges offer a significant advantage as they eliminate the need to grind healthy neighbouring teeth, ensuring a preserving and effective solution for your oral health.

Options for Replacing Several Missing Teeth

When it comes to replacing several missing teeth, there are a few options available. Dental implants, fixed dental bridges, and removable partial dentures are all common solutions that your dentist may recommend.

Each option has its benefits and considerations, so it’s important to discuss with your dentist which choice is best for you.

Dental implants

Dental implants are a long-lasting solution for replacing missing teeth. They involve placing titanium posts into the jawbone, which act as sturdy anchors for artificial teeth. This helps prevent jaw bone loss and maintain facial structure.

Dental implant surgery is often successful, with over 95% of cases resulting in healthy implants that can last a lifetime.

Implants are beneficial as they do not rely on neighbouring teeth for support like dental bridges do. Additionally, they look and function like natural teeth, allowing individuals to eat and speak comfortably without worry.

With dental implants, individuals can confidently smile and maintain good oral hygiene without concerns about removable dentures or potential discomfort from fixed bridges.

Choosing dental implants involves careful consideration but offers numerous advantages compared to other tooth replacement options.

Fixed dental bridge

Moving from dental implants to fixed dental bridges, it’s essential to understand another option for replacing multiple missing teeth. A fixed dental bridge consists of artificial teeth that are anchored in place by crowns attached to the neighbouring natural teeth.

These bridges provide a stable and permanent solution for restoring your smile and functionality.

Fixed dental bridges help prevent bone loss in the jaw, improve chewing ability, and speech clarity, and maintain facial structure due to their stability. This prosthetic option offers an effective way to address several missing teeth while enhancing confidence and oral health.

Removable partial dentures

Removable partial dentures are a tooth replacement option for individuals with multiple missing teeth. These prosthetics can improve speaking and eating abilities, prevent shifting of remaining teeth, and restore confidence.

They are custom-made to fit securely in the mouth, providing comfort and a natural-looking aesthetic. However, it’s important to note that removable partial dentures may require periodic adjustments as the jawbone changes over time due to missing teeth.
