Dr. Doyle Freano offers dental implants for multiple teeth in his Lexington, KY dental office. These restorations provide long-term and highly effective results for patients missing multiple teeth. Multiple missing teeth can be replaced using several separate dental implants to replace individual teeth. Dr. Freano can also replace a whole row of teeth with implant-supported dentures, or with the use of a dental bridge supported with dental implants to replace consecutive missing teeth.
Implant-Supported Dental Bridges
A dental bridge is custom-made and literally “bridges the gap” between natural teeth to restore both function and aesthetics to your smile. Traditionally, a dental bridge can be removable or fixed. Fixed bridges are attached to adjacent teeth using porcelain or metal. With both of these options, the long-term outcome is often less than desirable and may require replacement down the road. The loss of teeth impacts the jaw and bites over time.
Dentures have been the go-to solution for a full set of missing teeth for many years. When supported by implants, dentures provide a better result than removable dentures. Additionally, implants eliminate the need for glues, adhesives, soaks, or rinses and restore normal chewing function. Dental implants and dentures can now be used together to create a stable oral foundation that treats a whole set of missing teeth. With careful planning, Dr. Freano can use All-on-Four to help patients with compromised bone structure. More patients are able to receive implant-secured dentures and enjoy the benefits of a natural-looking and functioning smile.
Dental Implants For Multiple Missing Teeth
Dr. Freano will meet one-on-one with each dental implant patient for a consultation. He will perform a thorough dental health exam to see if multiple dental implants are the right choice for each patient. Dr. Freano is able to perform a majority of the procedures for dental implants at his Lexington, KY office. In other cases, Dr. Freano may work with a local oral surgeon to coordinate the surgical phase of treatment. Dr. Freano will work closely with the specialist when necessary to be sure everything is properly placed.
Once the dental implants are strategically, surgically placed, it will take about 3-6 months for the posts to fully heal and fuse with the jaw bone. Then, when the implants are fully healed, Dr. Freano will secure the custom-designed dental bridge or denture. Dental bridges and dentures secured by dental implants offer natural-looking and secure tooth replacement.
