NUMEROUS ADVANTAGES ASSOCIATED WITH FIXED BRIDGE ON IMPLANTS

Each year, millions of people suffer from the loss of teeth. Not only does this detrimentally impact the appearance, but, it takes a toll on the oral health of the individual.

This is especially true if the lost teeth are those that are located in the back of the mouth.

In order to successfully overcome the obstacles posed by missing teeth, a fixed bridge anchored directly to a dental implant is the most productive resolution.

In fact, it is considered to be the only fixed treatment option due to the fact that traditional dentures fail to offer the same level of stability and functionality.

  • Dental implants offer strength, stability, and functionality that is completely unparalleled
  • Additionally, they aid in preserving your facial appearance
  • Implants offer help in improving the health of the mouth

Treatment Outline

When opting for a fixed bridge on dental implant to replace multiple missing teeth, you must initiate the treatment with a comprehensive examination.

This will help us determine the best course of action for your needs and will also help us create a customized dental plan.

The total treatment time usually covers the span of up to 5 office visits.

While there may be pain, inflammation, and bruising, most patients are able to experience relief with a basic pain medication and resume normal activities within a day’s time

Course of Treatment

Installing the Fixed Bridge– Step-By-Step

The following briefly explains the treatment outline:

1. Examination

The dental professional will initiate the process with a thorough dental examination.

Additionally, x-rays will be taken of the area to be treated to ensure that the proper preparations are taken to achieve success in the placement of the ceramic dental implant.

2: Implant Installation

At the onset of the treatment process, many patients are provided with a temporary tooth.

The purpose and intent of this tooth is to ensure that the patient will have a fully functional device in place to ensure the ability to chew and communicate effectively.

3: Ensuring Proper Attachment

Once the ceramic dental implant is in place, it is permanent. The dentist will evaluate the treatment to ensure proper attachment and to make certain no other complications are arising.

Once it has been determined that the implant has taken for the single tooth replacement, the treatment will be complete.

4: Final Result

Once treatments have ceased, the implant should resemble and act like your natural tooth.

At this point, you should continue your normal dental hygiene regimen. This will aid in ensuring that the implant remains stable and that your oral health is optimized.

Fixed Bridge Alternatives

Removable Partial Denture

There is one alternative to a fixed bridge; that is, the removable partial denture. Unfortunately, this option is often deemed to be challenging and results in discomfort among patients.

This structure is composed of only plastic and thin metal. As a result, its overall level of functionality is negatively impacted. Furthermore, the partial denture does not look and feel as much like natural teeth as the multiple teeth replacement of a fixed on bridge and dental implants.
