If all upper or lower teeth are missing, multiple dental implants may be used to support a denture. Due to bone loss, traditional dentures may become loose and unstable over time. Dental implant supported dentures maintain bone* so dentures remain stable in your mouth.
Benefits of fixed bridge on implants
In this case, when replacing three teeth in the far back of the mouth, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the only alternative. Traditional dentures can’t offer the same stability or function.
Having dental implants replacing your lost back teeth will give you new, unparalleled strength and stability that allows you to eat what you want. It will also preserve your jawbone and facial appearance.
• 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.
After the initial examination, you can expect 4-5 additional visits until the final fixed bridge is permanently attached. 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.
