If all of your teeth are missing or need to be replaced, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the solution.
As an alternative to wearing a full denture, multiple implants can be placed across your jawbone to provide support for a fixed bridge. If your natural teeth are no longer working the way they used, or if they’re missing altogether, a full-arch dental implant solution may be right for you.
If you are struggling with bad teeth, unsightly partials, or poor-fitting dentures, you can now have a fixed dental implant system that will improve your smile and ability to chew.
The number of implants necessary for a full-arch fixed bridge will vary depending on the anatomy of your jaw, your opposing teeth, the number of teeth you want placed, and the type of bridge you want to use. Dr. HagShenas will evaluate your current situation and discuss the best approach with you so as to restore you back to good oral health.
Installing the Dental Implants
The first step is to install the dental implants that will replace the missing tooth roots. Temporary teeth are attached to the dental implants so you will be able to eat and function normally while waiting for the permanent bridge to be placed.
Attaching the bridge
Dr. HagShenas will install the the final bridge on top of the implants, and with a full jaw replacement like this, it normally takes 2-3 visits to have the bridge completely attached.
Replacing your dentures or your missing and failing teeth with a full-arch supported bridge, will give you the quality of life you’ve been craving. Because your new dental implants are similar to your natural root structure, your teeth will act and feel like your real teeth.
