Severe periodontal disease, dental trauma and untreated cavities can sometimes result in the loss of multiple teeth in one area of your mouth. Individuals struggling with this level of tooth loss typically experience decreased oral function as well as changes in the appearance of their mouth. If the missing teeth were located in the front of the mouth it could also affect clarity of speech
If you are missing multiple teeth, you should consider scheduling an appointment with a dentist like Dr. Jon Ackerman to explore your dental restoration options. After assessing the available oral structure in the area he might recommend an implant-supported dental bridge.
This dental restoration process calls for him to install a pair of titanium dental implants into the underlying bone structure. After the procedure the dental implants will gradually start to integrate with the surrounding bone tissues.
At this point Dr. Jon Ackerman will prepare two abutments capable of supporting a dental bridge which will replicate your missing teeth. Once it has been cemented the dental implant supported bridge will restore your essential oral function.
