If you are missing all your teeth and are in such a situation that they need to be replaced, then a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the best permanent solution. Before dental implants, there weren’t any fixed solution available for people who lost all their teeth. But now, even a full jaw replacement is possible with dental implants and a fixed bridge, which could be a permanent, stable, and highly aesthetic solution.
What is the procedure of getting fixed implant bridges?
The treatment procedure and number of visits also depend on the specific situations that the patients are in. At first, the dentist determines what is to be done, and then the dentist discusses and prepares the patient for the upcoming treatment procedure. The first step involved in the process includes installing dental implants to replace the lost tooth roots. Usually, five implants are used, and also temporary teeth are attached. This will enable you to eat and function just like natural teeth while waiting for the permanent bridge to be installed.
After that, the final bridge is securely attached to the top of the implants. It would probably take two-three visits to get the bridge completely installed with a full jaw replacement. It would be hard for anyone to tell that you’ve got new teeth as they look so natural for you and others as well. There are many patients who claim that following the procedure, they felt much more comfortable than they had expected. The dentist will examine and find out the best solution for you, according to your condition. People who have got traditional dentures before getting a fixed bridge often describe this experience as a very positive one.
