Two Consecutive Missing Teeth

Replacing any missing parts of your smile is important, but if you have 2 lost teeth consecutively, it’s incredibly hard to eat and speak regularly. Thankfully, we can anchor a custom-made dental bridge with dental implants to literally “bridge” the gap in your smile. The results are a strong, beautiful, and functional set of teeth.

Three or More Consecutive Missing Teeth

Traditional dental bridges consist of 2 dental crowns with prosthetic teeth attached in between them. The dental crowns are used as supports for the bridge. However, if you’re missing 3 or more teeth, we will recommend implants instead of crowns. With a dental implant placed on either side of the gap in your smile, we can restore the visible portion of your teeth while also creating firm supports and stimulating the jawbone.

You may be wondering if you can still enjoy the benefits of dental implants if you’re missing teeth nonconsecutively. Because every case is different it’s hard to make a precise estimate without examining your smile first. However, one of the reasons we offer dental implants is because they can be used to replace various patterns of tooth loss. To see if this treatment is right for you, contact our office today!

Benefits of Implant-Retained Bridges

We combine dental bridges with dental implants because they can offer our patients these unique benefits:

  • Bone health: Dental implants stimulate the jawbone to prevent deterioration after tooth loss.
  • Strength: Eat all your favorite foods and enjoy full biting force thanks to dental implants.
  • Longevity: Dental implants themselves can last for a lifetime with proper care, and they can even make your bridge last longer.
  • Dental health: Supported by implants, there is no need to remove healthy dental structure to accommodate dental crowns for stability.
