Two Implants Replace Three Teeth

When three consecutive teeth are missing, replacing them with implants presents a few options. One solution would be to place three individual implants with three individual crowns. Another more economical solution can be to use two implants to support three teeth in the form of a bridge. The picture below shows exactly this solution, two implants on either side of a fake tooth. Although this restoration requires a bit more maintenance than individual teeth, esthetically and functionally the result can be excellent.
