Fixed with dental bridges

A dental implant is used to fix broken teeth. It is made from titanium which is surgically positioned in jawbone beneath your gum line which allows the dentist to replace teeth or fix a bridge in the area. While the denture is removable, the implant is fixed in the mouth. The fixed bridges are screwed into the implant or cemented on it which can't be removed by the patient. While the dentures have plastic teeth in pink acrylic, fixed bridges have porcelain material which is fused inside the metal.

While the dentures have plastic teeth in pink acrylic, fixed bridges have porcelain material which is fused inside the metal.

If the patient misses a part of the gum, the dentist will fix it with pink coloured ceramic porcelain on your natural gum line. This won't make teeth look very long as well as square shaped.

The bridge which is supported by the implant is as good as a dental bridge, only that it gets support from implants instead of natural teeth. In a bridge with implant support, one implant is fixed in the jawbone for every missing tooth. After that, the crowns are attached to each other to form a single piece.

When is an implant bridge used?

It is used in cases where there are more teeth missing or in cases where the dentist will feel that the individual will put pressure on single implants which are not joint with each other. Grinding and clenching might put pressure on single implants, and it can increase of implant failure as they might loosen from bone. The bridge will decrease the pressure on individual implants and spread it on the entire bridge.

If implants are going to be placed immediate to the natural teeth, the teeth and gums need to be in good condition. If there is the absence of enough bone for the implant, a supporting bone will be built with bone augmentation followed by the implant procedure.

How to Care for Implant Fixed Bridge

The patient can clean the area between the bridge and the gum. The dentist will suggest a special floss and small delicate brush for soft cleaning. Apart from that, the bridge is just like natural teeth.
