Steps to Replacing Several Missing Teeth - Toledo Dentist
1. Beforehand – Dr. Hashim will examine you completely and take X-Rays to make sure you are a viable candidate.
2. Installing the implants – This is normally done in a single session. A temporary bridge may be placed at the same time, so you can function normally almost immediately after leaving Dr. Hashim's office.
3. Attaching the bridge – Implants usually need a month or two to integrate with the jaw. Once they’ve ‘taken’, the permanent bridge can be fixed to the implants.
4. The beautiful result – The new bridge will handle all the pressure that your strong, natural back teeth did. You can now eat whatever you like.
