There are rare instances when a severe oral trauma, untreated tooth decay, or chronic gum disease problems cause the loss of multiple teeth. Not only can this significantly limit your oral function, it might also alter your appearance and the clarity of your speech.
In recent years dental restoration technology has advanced so that dental implants can now be used to support a dental bridge restoration.
The process starts with Dr. Jason Campbell examining the area to assess the health and integrity of the existing bone structure. If he has any concerns, he might recommend having a bone graft performed in advance of the dental implant restoration.
After any structural concerns have been addressed, Dr. Jason Campbell can install two titanium dental implants in a single outpatient oral surgery. This typically requires full sedation, so a friend or family member will need to drive you home afterward.
Once the dental implants have been installed they will gradually bond with the living done tissues. Then, Dr. Jason Campbell can prepare a pair or abutments capable of anchoring a dental bridge.
