For a variety of reasons, you may suffer the loss of two or more consecutive teeth.
This may be gradual, where for several years you felt able to deal with just one missing tooth and chew reasonably well. However after losing another, you are now unable to chew on one side of the mouth and the other teeth are becoming overloaded and uncomfortable.
A previously functioning tooth-supported bridge that has failed could leave you with several teeth missing in a row. Or you may have suffered a ruinous trip, fall or accident causing several front teeth to be lost in one go.
What’s the Benefit of Implant Supported Bridges?
Most people do not want to use a removable denture and for larger spaces tooth supported bridges may not be suitable or sensible.
Whether your motivation is more cosmetic for the front teeth or functional for comfortable and even chewing on your back teeth, an implant supported fixed bridge may be the ideal solution for you.
Implant supported bridges look, feel and function like normal teeth. They are permanently fixed, do not need to be removed at night or interfere with speech and taste, and do not require the adjacent teeth to be treated for the fitting. This solution will restore even, balanced chewing and spread the forces evenly around your mouth, protecting your remaining teeth.
It is also reassuring that you do not need to have one implant per missing tooth. For example, three or four missing teeth can often be fitted to two implants at either end of the space to be restored.
Implant solutions are the most predictable long-term outcome with the highest success rates.
