Multiple Tooth Replacement – Boston, MA
Fixed Dental Bridges & Partial Dentures
If you’ve lost several teeth in a row or throughout your smile line, the dentist and dentistry team at the Boston Smile Center can help you put the smile back on your face. We offer a variety of tooth replacement options to renew your oral health following the loss of one or more consecutive and nonconsecutive missing teeth. This includes traditional fixed bridges and partial dentures as well as dental implant supported bridges and partial dentures. To learn about what your best restoration option may be, you should call to schedule a tooth replacement consultation appointment with our team. We’ll help you to review your restoration options and plan for the ideal solution to meet your needs.
What are the Tooth Replacement Options?
To replace several lost teeth, we offer both implant-retained and traditional tooth replacement options. Below, we’ve outlined some of the most commonly used solutions, but we can help you find the ideal solution during your tooth replacement consultation.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
Traditionally, we use dental crown and bridge restorations to replace one or a few missing teeth in a row. These restorations connect dental crowns to either side of a replacement tooth or teeth. Then, the dental crowns attach to surrounding healthy teeth, supporting the restoration.
To replace two or more teeth in a row, a dental implant supported fixed bridge may be the best option. The replacement teeth are fused together, but rather than attaching to surrounding teeth, they are anchored to two dental implant posts on either side.
A partial denture is used to fill the gaps in your smile. A gum-colored base material is used to support any number of replacement teeth. Then, clasps attach the partial denture to the remaining healthy teeth, recreating your flawless smile.
Implant-Supported Partial Dentures
Implant-retained partial dentures will look much like the traditional options, but rather than attaching to surrounding teeth, they are supported by between two and four dental implants.
How do I Determine which Implant Solution is Right for Me?
During a tooth replacement consultation, we will review each of your traditional and dental implant supported tooth replacement options. In order to ensure you receive the best possible treatment solution, we’ll walk you through every step of the restoration process, scheduling, costs, and more. We are your partners in developing the ideal tooth replacement plan.
Does Replacing Multiple Teeth Impact the Cost?
Like any other dental restoration plan, the number of damaged or lost teeth that need to be repaired will impact the overall cost of your treatment plan. In many cases, manufacturers offer discounted pricing for multiple dental implants, which is beneficial for those patients who need two or more implant posts to support their restorations. Additionally, the costs of surgical placement of these implants will remain relatively stagnant as long as the implants are placed on the same day. During your tooth replacement planning appointment, we will walk you through every step of your implant bridge or partial denture placement plan. Our knowledgeable team members will process and file insurance claims to maximize any available coverage, and when necessary, we can work with third party financiers to offer low or no interest payment plans.
