Multiple Teeth Replacement


Benefits with fixed bridge on implants:
In this case, when replacing three teeth in the far back of the mouth, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the only fixed alternative. Traditional dentures can't offer the same stability or function.

Having dental implants replacing your lost back teeth will give you  new, unparalleled strength and stability that allows you to eat what you want. It will also preserve your jawbone and facial appearance.

  • The only fixed alternative in this situation.
  • A stable, secure solution that lets you eat what you want
  • Preserves your facial appearance and prevents bone loss

After the initial examination, you can expect 4-5 additional visits until the final fixed bridge is permanently attached. It is normal to experience some minor bruising and swelling in the gum and soft tissue afterwards. Any discomfort is usually treated with an ordinary painkiller. You should expect to be able to work the next day.

The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult your dentist to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.

1: Before the procedure
Three teeth at back end of the mouth are missing. The only real replacement alternative is installing a fixed bridge. The bridge contains all teeth in one piece and is anchored on dental implants.
2: Installing the implant
First, the implants are installed. This is normally done in a single session. A temporary bridge may be placed at the same time, making it possible for you to function like normal almost immediately after leaving the dentist.

3: Attaching the bridge
The implants need to integrate with the jawbone before the permanent bridge is attached. This is normally done 1-2 months after the implant installation. The time will vary, depending on the teeth affected and the esthetical demands.
4: End result
The new bridge will handle all the pressure that your strong, natural back teeth did. You will have a stable and secure solution that allows you to eat what you want.



  Removable partial denture
This alternative is often perceived as uncomfortable and a bit complicated to use. Function can’t be compared to that of a bridge. This denture is made of plastic and metal, which affects its look. It is quite expensive to fabricate due to its many parts. However, the installation process is simple, and natural teeth are spared.

I have received regular dental care and cleaning all my life. I was very surprised to learn that I had moderate periodontal disease mostly due to crowded teeth. After thorough evaluation and explanation by Dr.
FitzPatrick, I decided that LANAP treatment was right for me.
The procedure was only mildly uncomfortable with no bleeding and no need for any kind of pain medication afterward. Since the treatment was completed in only two sessions, it did not cause any disruption to my daily routine.
Now, two and one-half years later I continue my periodontal therapy and am very satisfied with my LANAP outcome.
I highly recommend Dr. Fitzpatrick and his staff to anyone who needs periodontal treatment.

"It has now been about nine months since my implant work was completed, and it is well past time to thank you for your magnificent performance. I have not had a single problem with either the functioning or the appearance of my 'new mouth'.

While it obviously was not a 'walk in the park' to get the job completed, you exerted every effort to keep the discomfort to a minimum-and you were successful. Your professionalism is of the highest quality in all respects.

It has been the first summer in several years that I have been able to savor and enjoy corn on the cob and thick steaks. What a joy! Initially, I had my doubts that it would be worth all the expense, but now that the arduous work is behind me, the results prove that it was. I am immensely grateful to you and my restoarative dentist, and I would be pleased to recommend your services to anyone who is contemplating similar work."

"I had been dealing with periodontal disease for a number of years, having had minor surgical procedures. When my dentist recommended that I needed extensive periodontal surgery, I was ready. I had been aware of the LANAP treatment and I am happy I did it. Dr. FitzPatrick explained everything. I had the procedure and follow-up visits and the results were great. I would reccomend the LANAP to anyone who needs periodontal treatments."
