Patients missing multiple teeth can benefit from replacing them with dental implants. Depending on the location of the missing teeth, single implants or an implant-supported bridge can be used to replace missing teeth successfully. Multiple tooth implants provide patients with long-term oral health benefits. Missing teeth can compromise the integrity of your smile and should be replaced as soon as possible.

FAQ: Multiple Teeth Implants
Can I have multiple teeth replaced with dental implants?
Yes. Depending on where your missing teeth are, dental implants can be used singularly or to retain a bridge. Dental implants are the most natural and comfortable way to replace multiple missing teeth. Dr. Harper provides personalized treatment planning to determine which implant procedure will best benefit the patient.
How long does it take to recover from a dental implant surgery?
Typically it takes about 2-3 months to heal from the surgical placement of the dental implants fully. During this time, the dental implant will fuse with the bone creating a durable and lasting bond with the jaw bone. Most patients will be fitted with a temporary restoration while their implant heals. Once the implant has stabilized, Dr. Harper will custom design a final restoration for a natural and beautiful aesthetic outcome.
How long will my dental implant secured bridge last?
Dental implant secured dental restorations can last for many years with good oral hygiene. Dr. Harper recommends that patients with dental implants visit the dentist at least twice a year. Twice daily brushing and flossing are also essential for keeping your implant healthy and stable.
