Sometimes untreated tooth decay can afflict multiple teeth in one area of your mouth. If you forgo professional dental care, you could suffer multiple cases of tooth loss. In a situation like this, your ability to chew could be severely compromised. In time, you could also suffer other complications.
While a removable dental appliance like a partial denture can restore some of your basic oral function, it will never be able to replicate the full strength of your natural teeth. One of the more effective methods for restoring multiple teeth is to have dental implants mounted to a dental bridge.
Dr. Miles Mason will start by examining the area to assess your jaw structure and the relative health of your gums. If there are any issues with the underlying bone structure, he might recommend having a bone graft performed in advance of the dental implant treatment.
Once any structural concerns have been addressed, Dr. Miles Mason can install the dental implants in a single outpatient appointment. You will need to be sedated for your own comfort. Afterward, a friend or family member will need to drive you home.
Once Dr. Miles Mason has inserted the dental implants and they fully integrate with your living bone tissues, he can start the process of fitting you for a dental bridge. Once it has been cemented in place, your newly restored teeth will serve you for many years to come.
