Losing even a single tooth can cause your self-esteem to plummet, but several missing teeth can be detrimental to your oral health and quality of life. You don’t need to struggle with the complications of an incomplete smile. We can replace each missing tooth using results that look and feel natural. Besides traditional treatments, we also offer the latest innovations using dental implants to treat multiple missing teeth.
Two Consecutive Missing Teeth
Two missing teeth in a row can be replaced using a fixed bridge. Also known as a bridge and crowns, an impression of your mouth is taken to recreate the teeth you’ve lost. Dental crowns are used at either end to attach the bridge to your adjacent teeth. This is a convenient solution, but you’ll need to rely on healthy teeth for support.
As an alternative, you we can anchor your bridge to your jawbone using a dental implant to act as a new root. The preserves your remaining teeth to improve your oral health overall.
Three or More Consecutive Missing Teeth
A fixed bridge can also be used to replace three or more missing teeth in a row. With the right care, it can last for 5 to 10 years before needing to be replaced. If you want a more permanent solution, we can secure your bridge to your jawbone using a dental implant at either end.

Multiple Missing Teeth Throughout an Arch
You have several options to treat significant tooth loss, like a partial if you still have a few healthy teeth remaining. Prosthetics are attached to a gum-colored base and metal framework to fill the empty spaces. Although it’s effective, it will always have its limitations. As an alternative, we can use a combination of single unit implants and implant-retained bridges to rebuild your smile.
Patients who have lost all their teeth in one or both arches can benefit from a traditional denture, which is held to your gum tissue using suction or an adhesive. Despite new innovations, conventional dentures will never truly feel completely natural. Instead, you can enjoy the support and stability of an implant-supported denture. 4 to 10 dental implants anchor it to your jawbone, so you’ll never need to worry about any slipping or irritation again.
