You probably never expected to lose multiple teeth, but that’s a reality you face each day. Whether from trauma, decay, or infection, your incomplete smile compromises your quality of life. Not to mention, it’s easy to feel embarrassed by your appearance. You don’t need to live with the empty spaces. We have the solutions you need to fill the place of several missing teeth. Besides the traditional solution, we can also rebuild your smile with a dental implant bridge in Manchester. We’ll help you restore your smile back to its previous state using the latest innovations in dentistry.
A bridge and crowns are the most conventional option to replace two missing teeth in a row. We take an impression of your mouth to recreate the teeth you’ve lost. The restoration is held in place by reshaping your adjacent teeth to bond dental crowns over them. This is a convenient solution to replace the portions of your teeth visible above the gum line, but you will need to permanently alter healthy teeth. As an alternative, a dental implant can be used to anchor your bridge to your jawbone. It doesn’t rely on healthy teeth for support, allowing you to preserve your natural smile.
Several missing teeth in a row can also be treated with a fixed bridge. Although it’s effective, it will always have its limitations. You can enjoy the next best thing to your real teeth by using a dental implant at either end to support it. The implant posts act as new tooth roots, so your jawbone will fuse to them. Your new teeth will closely look and feel natural to improve your confidence and your quality of life.
Traditionally, several missing teeth throughout an arch are treated with a partial denture.

Your dentist in Manchester can use a combination of single unit implants and implant-supported bridges to restore your smile.
Dental implants will serve as new tooth roots, allowing you to enjoy several benefits not possible with traditional solutions, such as:
