If you need to replace multiple teeth in the back of the mouth, a bridge anchored to dental implants is the only fixed alternative.

Having dental implants replacing your lost back teeth gives you new, unparalleled strength and stability that allows you to eat what you want. It also preserves your jawbone and facial appearance.

The new bridge will handle all the pressure that your strong, natural back teeth did. You will have a stable and secure solution that allows you to eat what you want.

REASONS FOR AN IMPLANT
ANCHORED BRIDGE:

  • The only fixed alternative in this situation.
  • A stable, secure solution that lets you eat what you want
  • Preserves your facial appearance and prevents bone loss

HOW IT’S DONE:

Installing a fixed bridge takes a number of visits after the initial examination.

First, the implants are installed. This is normally done in a single session. A temporary bridge may be placed at the same time, making it possible for you to function like normal almost immediately after leaving the dentist.

The implants need to integrate with the jawbone before the permanent bridge is attached. This is normally done 1-2 months after the implant installation. The time will vary, depending on the teeth affected and the esthetical demands.

It is normal to experience some minor bruising and swelling in the gum and soft tissue afterwards. Any discomfort is usually treated with an ordinary painkiller. You should expect to be able to work the next day.

ALTERNATIVES TO FIXED BRIDGE:

REMOVABLE PARTIAL DENTURE

This alternative is often perceived as uncomfortable and a bit complicated to use. Function can’t be compared to that of a bridge. This denture is made of plastic and metal, which affects its look. It is quite expensive to fabricate due to its many parts. However, the installation process is simple, and natural teeth are spared.
