Multiple Dental Implants
Dr. Rever replaces teeth with a dental bridge or a denture that is held securely in place by dental implants. During your consultation, he will decide how many implants you need after an in-depth examination of your mouth, gums, and teeth. Most dental restorations are held in place with two, four, or more teeth implants.
Several consecutive missing teeth can be replaced with a dental bridge using at least two dental implants. Your dentist or oral surgeon will place the implant posts in the jaw bone on both sides of the void. Then, he will fabricate and secure a custom-made dental bridge to the implants.
Another option would be to replace each missing tooth with a separate implant-supported dental crown. However, that option is more invasive and may require more implants. An implant-supported bridge is a better solution versus a partial denture; since partials are typically not as reliable or as natural-looking. Learn more about dental crowns.
An entire row of missing teeth can be replaced with a denture using up to eight dental implants. Dr. Rever will map out where the implants should be placed along the arch during the planning phase. The implants will be placed in their pre-determined location during a surgical procedure while under general anesthetic.
Implant-supported dentures offer more benefits compared to traditional removable dentures. They will not slip around in the mouth or cause slurred speech. Many people have to constantly worry about them falling out. Dentures that are held in place with implants are more comfortable and offer a long-term solution for patients missing entire upper or lower rows of teeth. This type of restoration has helped many people live better lives, giving them more confidence in their smiles.
Implant-Supported Partial Denture
Dr. Rever can design a partial denture to replace a few missing teeth on an arch that are not consecutive. It is typically used if you still have healthy remaining teeth and just need to fill in the gaps. They are typically supported by two to four dental implants.
