One viable option for replacing multiple teeth that are missing, is to fit the mouth with an implant-retained fixed bridge. This helps to eliminate facial collapse, extreme difficulty when eating or speaking, and improved self-esteem that comes with having a fuller, more complete facial structure. Dental implants also have added benefits over dentures that cause pain if ill-fitted, such as eliminating the need for adhesives and preserving the remaining bone. They also work well for patients who clench or grind their teeth, allowing for reduced pressure spread across the entire bridge instead of individual bone implants. Some patients also consider the All-on-4 permanent teeth solution. For more information, visit our Implant Dentistry page.
