If you’ve lost two or more consecutive teeth, We can fully restore your lost tooth structure and function, using a dental implant supported fixed bridge restoration.
We're here to answer your questions
A traditional fixed bridge fills the gap between healthy teeth and a missing tooth in between; the prosthetic tooth is assisted by dental crowns on either side, which are fitted over the neighbouring healthy teeth. This treatment needs your dentist to remove important material from your healthy teeth for the purpose to fit the crowns over them, and can generally be used to replace one or two missing teeth in a row. Unlike this, an implant-retained bridge obtains all of its support from dental implants. These implants work as replacement tooth roots and the support for your prosthetic teeth.
An implant supported fixed bridge is needed for those patients who have lost between two to four teeth in a row. According to the size and shape of missing teeth, we can replace a larger number of teeth with a single fixed bridge. In certain instances, we can also use several fixed bridge restorations to replace a full row of teeth. Though, these treatment plans are very aggressive, and they may not be ideal for every patient. For more advanced tooth loss, we normally suggest an implant supported denture.
Restoring both the roots and crowns of missing teeth, implant-retained restorations assure full stability without putting pressure around tooth structures for support. The stimulus offered by the implant posts maintains the optimal degree of healthy tooth and gum tissue. Once in place, implant bridges provide natural function for two decades or longer compared with traditional bridges that need to be replaced every five to ten years.
If you’ve lost two or more consecutive teeth, the South Coast Dentists can assist. We generally suggest dental implant-retained tooth replacement as they offer close to natural appearance and function. If you want replace two or more teeth in a row, we’ll provide an implant supported bridge.
