Dental implants can be used to replace multiple missing teeth if planned properly. Depending on various factors of each individual patient, implants can be used to replace each missing tooth individually or using a couple implants to replace multiple missing teeth via an implant bridge. The more teeth someone is missing, the greater the need for proper pre-treatment planning. This is crucial for those seeking treatment from a fully trained implant dentist in order to achieve long term success and to minimize possible post implant therapy prosthetic complications.
