Replacing Multiple Teeth with Dental Implants in 60544

When several neighboring teeth are missing, an implant-supported bridge is the optimal treatment option for replacing them. An implant bridge consists of three major aspects, the dental implant, abutments, and the dental bridge. A traditional dental implant bridge consists of an artificial tooth connected to two crowns on both sides that are placed on two neighboring dental implants that hold the bridge in place. A dental implant bridge may be used to replace three or more missing teeth.

When multiple neighboring teeth are missing, the bone will begin to resorb and shrink at a rapid pace. The surrounding teeth will begin to shift and move into the open space. The remaining teeth begin to overcompensate for the lost teeth and they too risk being lost.
