Missing teeth is a problem that people face for different reasons. It can be from tooth decay, a serious sporting accident, case of severe gum disease or other oral health impacts. If left untreated it can lead to more serious oral health problems, have trouble when eating your favourite solid foods and can start to feel self-conscious when smiling.
So if you have a missing tooth or teeth that you know will need be removed soon or you’re currently wearing an uncomfortable partial denture, consider dental implants to replace your multiple missing teeth.
What is a Multiple Teeth Implant Bridge?
A multiple teeth implant bridge is a fixed dental solution designed to replace multiple missing or decaying teeth.
A multiple teeth implant bridge or prosthesis is made up of three parts, the implant fixtures, the small titanium screws that are inserted into the jawbone, below the gum line, that acts as an artificial tooth root anchoring your new implant supported bridge in place; the middle connections are called the abutments, which is the part that connects the implanted titanium screws to the new bridge; the bridge being your new artificial teeth. An implant bridge is the ideal solution if you’ve lost or are losing two or more of your natural teeth.
The implant bridge is designed to mimic the natural contours, shape and form of the natural teeth. The implant bridge is fixed meaning it cannot be removed from your mouth, as opposed to traditional partial dentures which are removable.
The fixed implant bridge is a preferred long-term treatment option over other alternatives like traditional removable dentures or tooth-supported bridges to replace your missing teeth. We aim to deliver high quality, natural tooth aesthetics to our Aria Dental patients. The implant solution offers the most natural looking, feeling and functioning result.

Multiple Teeth Implants Perth, Bridge Procedure
INITIAL CONSULT & DIAGNOSTICS
After a clear and informative discussion with Aria Dental’s specialist Prosthodontist, we require diagnostic records to be able to accurately create your implant treatment plan. This involves taking multiple impressions (either moulds or digital scans) of your teeth to construct a study model for our specialty dental laboratory to design your new implant. We will also take intra-oral and extra-oral x-rays, CT cone beam scans and take numerous clinical photographs. These records are essential for the planning phase and to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for you.
This first procedure involves Aria Dental’s specialist Prosthodontist removing the decayed or unwanted teeth. The dental implants (tiny titanium screws) are then placed into the jawbone, in a process known as immediate implant placements. The surgery is completed with any necessary bone and tissue grafting repair. A precise impression of your jawline is then taken to design your bridge/new teeth. In some instances, this may be done immediately and fitted on the same day. Normally an temporary ‘suck-down’ essix retainer or temporary bridge is fitted over the implant fixtures (so you go home with replacement teeth) and the final process is completed later.
FINAL IMPLANT SUPPORT BRIDGE
After a period of healing and the design has been completed by our expert laboratory technicians (who ensure everything is correct based on your aesthetic requirements, personality and facial characteristics), one of our Aria Dental implant experienced dentists will secure your definitive (final) implant support bridge to the implant abutments permanently. We will take a final number of clinical photographs and you will be ready to go and show off your brand-new smile!

Frequently asked questions
Do I need an implant for every missing tooth?
Am I a suitable candidate for dental implants?
Most adults can have multiple teeth implants Perth, providing your jaw has finished growing and you are in good health. Ideally, you should not smoke, be free of periodontal disease and not have medical conditions such as diabetes and osteoporosis.
If you are missing one, several or all your teeth, you may be a candidate for implants. You’ll need to have adequate bone in your jaw for implants, so if you’ve been missing teeth for many years, some of the bone may have resorbed. If this has happened, you may require a bone graft or sinus lift before your implant procedure.
