Implant Supported Bridges (Fixed)
In cases there are multiple (>=3) teeth missing, common treatment options in order to maintain the appearance and to restore the function include removable partial denture, a long-span fixed bridge or implant supported bridge. Among these three options, removal partial denture can be bulky and uncomfortable and needs multiple adjustments and relines. Traditional fixed bridge supported by your natural teeth requires trimming of your adjacent teeth which will compromise the health of surrounding teeth and increase the risk of decay. And due to multiple teeth missing and the long span of the gap, your natural supporting teeth need to be strong and healthy enough to provide adequate support. As a result, a traditional fixed bridge might not always be the best solution and an implant-supported bridge can be a more conservative and suitable treatment option. This is especially the case where natural teeth are no longer present or are not healthy or strong enough to support a long-span bridge.
Benefits of Implant Supported Bridges
Implant prevent bone loss in the Jaw
Implants fuse to the living bone cells of the jaw and stimulate the jawbone, helping it maintain its density. This also prevents shrinkage of the jawbone.
Implants help to strengthen the remaining natural teeth
Using implants as anchors, the adjacent natural teeth can be preserved and remain fully intact. Dental implants may further protect your natural teeth by spreading the forces created during biting and chewing.
Implants restore your smile
An implant-supported bridge will fully restore your smile, providing the perfect amount of support for your cheeks and lips and restoring your facial dimensions, which keeps you looking younger.
Superior Strength and Stability
Implant-supported bridge restore your normal eating, talking, and smiling without worrying about your dental prosthetic becoming loose or falling out.
Implant-supported bridge is a treatment option that is often less expensive than replacing every missing tooth with an implant.
Process of Implant Supported Bridge
The first step is placing the implants into the jawbone. This step is vital as the dental implants must be optimally inserted at exactly the right angle and locations to ensure proper fitting of bridge later for perfect results. Over a period of three to six months, the implants fused into the jawbone to provide a solid anchor for the bridge. A flipper may be placed over this area to maintain appearance until the permanent bridge is placed.
The next step is to taking impression for the abutment selection and implant bridge fabrication.
Finally, customized made abutments and implant bridge are then fixed to the implants. Once the bridge is in place, it will blend into the rest of your smile for seamless treatment and full functionality.
