Dental implants in Jacksonville provide long-term and highly effective results for patients missing multiple teeth. Multiple missing teeth can be replaced using several separate dental implants to replace individual teeth. When more than one tooth is lost or missing, multiple dental implants can provide an effective replacement with durable results.
Dr. Alexander in Jacksonville, FL offers several dental implant treatment options. Dental implants offer patients who are missing multiple teeth a stable and healthy oral foundation for a lifetime of beautiful smiles. With an almost 98% success rate, dental implants offer a permanent and secure missing teeth treatment option.
Types of Dental Implants for Multiple Missing Teeth
The type of dental implant procedure you receive will depend on the number and location of your missing teeth as well as your overall oral health. Dr. Alexander will schedule a consultation with you at his Jacksonville FL dentist office to determine which type of dental implant is best for you. He will then develop a personalized treatment plan for the patient tailored to their cosmetic goals, dental health concerns, and budget.
If you are missing several consecutive teeth, then a dental implant-supported dental bridge is the best treatment option. A dental bridge is traditionally secured using prepared adjacent teeth, essentially damaging healthy teeth. With the use of dental implants, a dental bridge can be permanently secured in place which helps to preserve the healthy adjacent teeth. Implants provide more structural support for the jaw and bite and need less maintenance.
Dental Implants For Multiple Missing Teeth
For several consecutive missing teeth, Dr. Alexander may recommend using a dental bridge supported with a dental implant. Two or more posts will be surgically implanted into the jaw. These posts will permanently secure the dental bridge restoration. The implants will also help to stimulate natural bone growth in the jaw and maintain the structure of your face.
Tooth implants take about 3-6 months for the posts to fully heal and fuse with the jaw bone. Once fully healed, a custom-designed dental bridge will be secured to the implants by Dr. Alexander. With the use of modern technology, dental bridges can now be color-matched to your natural smile for a perfect fit. Implant-secured bridges offer natural-looking and secure tooth replacement.

If you are missing an entire row of teeth, either on top or bottom, then implant-supported dentures are recommended. Denture implants can be supported by as few as four strategically placed dental implants. While this procedure does require a greater initial investment compared to dentures alone, implant dentures offer the best long-term benefits.
Dentures alone do not support the structure of the jaw bone and patients may experience gradual bone loss and deterioration of the structure of the jaw. Implant-supported dentures also help to maintain the bone structure in the face. While there is a greater investment initially, implant-supported dentures provide superior long-term benefits. Denture implants also allow patients to enjoy a diet without restrictions.
