If you are missing several adjacent teeth, you cannot smile, chew or speak freely. You can replace the missing teeth with implants for… each tooth or have them replaced with an implant bridge. An implant bridge, which is made up of dental implants, abutments, and the dental bridge is a more affordable option.The jawbone at the gap where adjacent teeth are missing tends to shrink at a fast rate. Consequently, the surrounding teeth will slowly start shifting towards the open space causing many gaps between the teeth. The teeth on the upper or lower jaw, depending on the position of the missing teeth, will overgrow to compensate for the lost teeth and they become vulnerable to getting lost.
