Fixed Bridge to Implant Teeth
The procedure for implant supported fixed bridge takes more time than a single implant. Most cases you will have multiple implants placed into your jaw. It will take about 2 to 6 months for the implants to bond to form an anchor for your bridge. You will have to anticipate about 8-10 office visits. The amount of visits all depends on each case and specific conditions. You will be wearing temporary teeth while the implants are healing. The second part of this procedure is necessary to uncover the implants and attach extensions. These steps allow a foundation for the new teeth to be placed. With some cases you can get a one-step implant and will not have to do step 2. With this implant you will be getting new teeth that will be attached by tightening down on the implant. Most patients have reported that the procedure was much more comfortable than they had thought it would be.
A fixed bridge on implants is a great permanent solution. The bridge is completely customized to each patient’s needs and situation. This implant supported bridge is non removable from the mouth by the patient. It is also palateless which means nothing will be covering the roof of your mouth.
