Multiple Single-Tooth Implant Restorations
A dental implant is another fixed option to replace a missing tooth. When multiple teeth are missing, individual implants can be used as single unit restorations to restore form, function and esthetics. Typically, the implants themselves are placed and allowed to heal for 3-6 months. After the native jaw bone has grown around and integrated with the implants, the replacement teeth can be fabricated and fit to the body of the implant.

Replacing Multiple Teeth
Replacing multiple teeth can be achieved using one of several therapeutic options: a conventional fixed bridge, multiple single-tooth implant restorations, a fixed implant supported bridge, a removable partial denture, or an implant-assisted removable partial denture.  Treatment options vary with individual needs.  Appropriate space, gum tissue, underlying bone and overall health are all important factors when discussing your options.
 
Conventional Fixed Bridge
When missing multiple teeth a fixed bridge is one option. A conventional fixed bridge or a fixed partial denture can be used if the surrounding teeth are healthy and the space is short. A fixed bridge utilizes the adjacent teeth on each end of the space to support the prosthesis. The maximum number of posterior teeth that can be safely replaced by a fixed bridge is three. A space created by the loss of four adjacent teeth, other than four anterior teeth, is typically restored with either a removable partial denture or an implant supported fixed bridge. Furthermore, tipped or angled teeth, or loose teeth may not be able to withstand the forces from a conventional fixed bridge.
