Replacing Several Teeth in a Row
Sometimes two or more teeth in a row have been lost, or have broken down and need to be extracted and replaced. Dr. Malin is an accomplished expert in dental implant treatment. He offers several options for replacing several missing teeth in a row with premium-quality implants and highly durable and aesthetic new teeth.
Options for Replacing Several Teeth in a Row
When two teeth in a row are missing, Dr. Malin places an implant for each missing tooth and tops each one with an individual crown.
When three or more teeth are missing, Dr. Malin can also place an implant and crown for each individual tooth. Or, he can use two implants to stably support a dental bridge. He can tell you which option he recommends for you after a full exam and evaluation.
Top-Quality Materials for Maximum Aesthetics and Durability
Dr. Malin manufactures his own patented, high-quality implants. They have an exceptional ability to integrate (fuse) with the jawbone and maintain the bone and gum tissue levels around the implant over time.
He will fabricate your replacement teeth out of zirconia, an extremely durable and lifelike ceramic, and will add layers of porcelain over them to achieve a translucent, natural look. Zirconia is the strongest dental ceramic available. It is extremely resistant to chipping, cracking or breaking.
Cutting-Edge Technology for Stable and Consistent Results
Dr. Malin uses advanced 3D diagnostics, computer-guided planning and minimally invasive procedures to make your implant treatment precise, efficient and comfortable. In most cases, he is able to extract broken-down teeth and place dental implants in the same visit.
Implant-Supported Bridges vs. Traditional Bridges
There are a number of reasons why tooth replacement using dental implants is advantageous compared to using a dental bridge.
Traditional dental bridges require grinding down the adjacent natural teeth so the bridge can be cemented in place. This considerably weakens those teeth and leaves them vulnerable to fracture, decay and infection over time. Traditional bridges can also become unstable when they consist of a large number of connected crowns, as they do not have enough anchoring support to stand up easily to the biting and chewing forces that bear down on them.
Dental implants require no grinding down of adjacent teeth and can handle a long span of connected replacement teeth by simply placing more implants for support. Implant-supported bridges are therefore much more stable than traditional dental bridges. The chewing pressure on the dental implants also gives the stimulation needed to maintain the bone volume in your jaw; something that traditional bridges do not provide.
