Procedures using multiple Implants
Fixed Bridges of ceramic crowns, placed over dental Implants:
You don’t have to have an individual implant for each tooth, when you are replacing multiple teeth that are adjacent. We can make fixed bridges. So, for three missing teeth, rather than 3 implants, we would use 2 implants, and make a porcelain bridge of 3 crowns to mount on the two implants. For a full arch of teeth, with 8 dental implants, we can place 4 three tooth fixed bridges For a full arch, this would save you about $3000.
Implants placed to support dentures:
We can make a special denture that mounts on 4 dental implants. The denture will snap on, and can be easily removed for cleaning. For upper teeth, the denture will not need to have a piece that covers the pallet, because it is not held up by suction, but is held up by the dental implants.
