Multiple Teeth Replacement
When you have more than one tooth, we can place two or more implants to support two or more teeth on a bridge. It is a common misconception that you need ‘one implant per tooth’, you don’t. For instance we can place 4 implants and support a full jaw arch of teeth.
If multiple implants are placed in an area, and they exhibit adequate primary stability after placement, they can be restored immediately with either a final or a temporary restoration. The choice between temporary and final restoration is typically based upon the esthetic needs of the patient, and existing and desirable soft tissue contours. Generally speaking, interims restorations are used in esthetically sensitive areas to further develop soft tissue contours, while final restorations can be used in areas in the back of the mouth, or for entire jaws. A thorough examination will determine if you are a candidate for teeth-in-an-hour, and which kind of prosthetic reconstruction is appropriate for you.
