An Implant Bridge Can Restore Your Smile After Significant Tooth Loss

Posted .

If severe tooth decay, an accident, or a blow to the face has caused you to lose multiple teeth in one area of your mouth, Dr. Sam Markzar and our team are happy to help you review your restoration options. Depending on the extent of your tooth loss, our periodontist may recommend a dental implant bridge to restore multiple missing teeth.

The loss of multiple teeth can affect the original bone structure and cause it to deteriorate. In fact, we may recommend a bone graft if the bone structure has become too compromised, as we need to thicken the healthy bone structure so that the dental implants will remain secure.

Once your jaw structure is healthy, our periodontist will perform the surgical portion of the procedure. During this process, we will create narrow channels to the bone so that titanium abutments can be screwed into place.

After the biologically safe titanium implant has fused completely with the bone, our team will take an impression of the affected area and surrounding teeth so that we can begin the process of providing a custom-made dental bridge.

If you have lost multiple teeth or had several removed from a single area of your smile, you should call Beverly Hills Periodontal Arts and Implants at 310-360-7570 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Sam Markzar and explore your options for tooth restoration in Beverly Hills, California.
