A multiple tooth implant vs. alternative solutions
The three most commonly recommended replacement solutions for multiple missing teeth are multiple tooth implants, fixed bridges, and removable partial dentures. Each offers unique benefits, and one may be preferable depending on the patient’s goals and treatment preferences. However, a multiple tooth implant is generally more durable, feels more natural, and requires less maintenance than dentures and a fixed bridge. However, the treatment process is more extensive, and they can cost more than the alternative teeth replacement solutions.
When a multiple tooth implant may be right for you
A multiple tooth implant may be ideal for a patient missing multiple teeth or severely damaged teeth in the same quadrant of the mouth. In this case, two implants can be placed on each side of the section of missing teeth. The dental bridge is then attached. The multiple tooth implant process is longer than with alternative solutions and requires a minimally invasive surgical procedure to place the dental implants in the jaw.
