Dental Implants - Fixed bridge Treatment

Fixed Bridge Treatment

Replacing your missing teeth with a fixed bridge treatment option versus dental implant solutions will require permanent changes to adjacent teeth.

To create a fixed bridge to replace a single missing tooth, we must grind down adjacent healthy teeth to support a fixed bridge. This may compromise the life expectancy of the supporting teeth due to the permanent changes to the tooth structure.

Additionally, there are other risk factors such as bacterial access to the supporting teeth, which can lead to dental decay and gum disease, as well as possible oral bone and tissue loss.

Unlike a fixed bridge, replacing a single missing tooth with dental implants limits the compromise to the surrounding natural teeth.

Dental Implants Support More Than Just a Single Tooth

Implant Retained Denture

Implant retained dentures are secured in place onto two or more dental implants by attachments that connect to the implant. The attachments allow you to have control over when your teeth are removed for easy daily care.

Implant bar supported denture

Implant bar supported dentures are secured to a custom support bar with clip attachments placed in your replacement teeth. The attachments allow you to have control over when your teeth are removed for easy daily care.

Implant supported fixed dentures are replacement teeth secured in place by screws on top of the foundation provided by dental implants. This option is fixed and only your dentist has control over when your replacement teeth can be removed.

FAQs about Dental Implants

What are dental implants?
Dental implants are substitutes for the roots of missing teeth. They act as an anchor for a replacement tooth or crown or a set of replacement teeth. A dental implant is a highly specialized cylinder of titanium that is placed in the jaw bone under the gum. Being extremely biocompatible with the body, it has bone forming around it to fuse the implant to the bone. Once the implant is successfully placed, it is used to support a crown, bridge, or a complete or partial denture.

Am I a candidate for implants?
Implant patients are of all ages and implants may be the right choice for anyone missing one or more teeth due to injury, disease, or decay. They are especially practical for patients who can no longer wear removable dentures. We can determine if you are a candidate for dental implants after a careful evaluation of your dental and medical history.

Do I have enough bone?
It is important for a patient to have enough bone to support the implant. If you do not have enough bone, there are many safe and effective ways to correct bone deficiency. We will assess this and advise you if additional bone material is needed.

How long does treatment take?
Treatment time can vary depending on your needs. Each situation needs a separate evaluation; upon evaluation we will be able to give you an approximate timetable. The usual time period would be 3-6 months.

What are the costs involved?
With dental implants being placed routinely, the procedure is more affordable and less complicated than you think! The cost is no more than replacing a tooth with a bridge, only with greater benefits as the adjacent healthy teeth are spared.

Will my insurance provider cover any of the above costs?
Every insurance plan is different; however, in our experience, the cost of implant surgery, placement and bone grafting will most likely not be covered. What may be covered either fully or partly will most likely be the crown or denture.

What are the advantages of implants?
They do not get cavities! The implant behaves as your natural tooth does and improves your chewing efficiency and does not need adjacent teeth to be trimmed as you would need to in a bridge to replace a missing tooth in between existing teeth.

What are the disadvantages of implants?
They can get gum disease and need the same care that your natural teeth do with regular checkups and cleanings. The implant is placed surgically, so there are some of the risks of surgery such as bleeding, infection, bruising, numbness, etc.
