Dental Implant Bridge
The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult your dentist to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.
1: Before the procedure
Three teeth at back end of the mouth are missing. The bridge contains all teeth in one piece and is anchored on dental implants.
2: Installing the implants
First, the implants are installed. This is normally done in a single session. If conventional implants are done, a healing abutment or cover screw is placed on and left about 2 months to integrate with the jawbone before the next step is taken. If immediate loaded implants can be done, 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.
3: Attaching the bridge
The final step is the making and placing of the bridge. The new tooth is installed for permanently.
4: End result
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.
