Benefits of a fixed bridge on Dental Implants Financial District
When all teeth are missing or in such condition that they need to be replaced, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the best permanent solution.
Before full arch dental implants, there were no fixed solution available for people who lost all their teeth. Today, it is possible to replace a full jaw with dental implants and a fixed bridge that results in a permanent, stable and high esthetic solution.
- Lets you eat and function like having natural teeth
- A solid, stable solution that will greatly improve your quality of life.
- Preserves your facial appearance and prevents bone loss
The treatment procedure and number of visits is largely dependent on the specific conditions. Most patients report that they were much more comfortable following the procedure than they had anticipated.
COURSE OF TREATMENT
INSTALLING THE FIXED BRIDGE– STEP-BY-STEP
The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult your San Francisco implant dentist Dr. Chris Rodriguez to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.
1: Before the procedure
The dentist determines what needs to be done and prepares both himself and the patient for the coming treatment procedure.
2: Installing the implants
The first step is installing dental implants to replace the lost tooth roots. In this case, five implants are used. Temporary teeth are attached that enable you to eat and function like normal while waiting for the permanent bridge to be installed.
3: Attaching the bridge
The final bridge is securely installed on top of the implants.
4: End result
Your new teeth should be hard to differentiate from natural teeth – both for you and others. People who have had traditional dentures before getting a fixed bridge often describe this as a joyfully overwhelming and positive experience.
