Multiple Teeth Replacement – Merrimack, NH

Fill in the Gaps for a Complete Smile

Do you have multiple missing teeth? Filling in those gaps can benefit your confidence, protect your long-term oral and overall health, and let you enjoy all of your favorite foods with gusto. Several options are available for replacing lost teeth, all of which can be quite sturdy and aesthetically pleasing. However, traditional treatments replace only the visible portion of teeth, while dental implants in Merrimack replace the entire structure of missing pearly whites.

Non-Implant Tooth Replacement Options

Partial Denture
  • A crown and bridge, sometimes simply called a traditional bridge, is a simple prosthesis with two crowns that fit over the teeth that are adjacent to the open space. An artificial tooth (or teeth) gets suspended between them. A bridge may be constructed of metal or porcelain.
  • A partial denture is a single, removable prosthesis that can replace multiple teeth at different places throughout an arch. It is sort of like a puzzle piece that helps to complete a smile. It may need special metal clips or attachments to anchor it in place during eating and speaking.
  • A full denture replaces an entire arch of teeth. It rests on the gums and may be secured via natural suction or with the help of a mild denture adhesive. It may need periodic adjustments in order to continue to fit well.

The Dental Implant Process

Implant-Retained Denture

If you want to restore your smile in the best way possible, we recommend that you schedule a consultation to discover whether dental implants are right for you. The overall process may take several months and multiple appointments. It begins with a placement surgery, during which our team creates small incisions into the gums and uses a drill to make room in the bone for the implants. As you heal from the procedure, the implants will fuse to the jaw, creating the strongest base of support possible for your new teeth. Eventually, you will receive a custom-made, implant-supported bridge or denture to replace the visible portion of your missing teeth.

The Benefits of Implant-Retained Dental Prostheses

Implant-retained tooth replacement options offer several advantages over their traditional counterparts:

  • Because implants bond with the bone around them, they help to prevent the jaw from deteriorating.
  • There is never a risk that implants will slip out of place during eating or speaking.
  • Implants provide the strongest bite force out of all the tooth replacement options.
  • Implant-retained prostheses can look virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth.
  • Implants have the potential to last a lifetime, whereas alternative treatments may last for just 5 – 15 years.
  • It is easy to care for dental implants; there is usually no need to remove the artificial teeth in order to clean them.
