Replacing Multiple Teeth

Replacing Multiple Teeth

Replacing multiple missing teeth requires detailed collaboration between surgeon and restorative dentist. First, the proper diagnostic images are needed, and this is typically done with our in-house Cone Beam Scanner. Multiple missing teeth may be include 2 or more teeth that are next to one another, or even the complete replacement of all upper or lower teeth. For those patients who currently wear dentures and are dissatisfied, there are multiple options that be can offered which range in complexity and cost.

Examples of situations where a patient is missing multiple teeth

The first example shows a patient missing several teeth on the lower right side. The first option to replace these missing teeth is a removable partial denture, which rests on the other teeth and needs to be removed at night.
