Bridge

An implant supported bridge, or implant supported fixed denture, is the replacement of multiple teeth in one span with implants and a fixed prosthesis.

The Benefits

Implant supported bridge can be placed in areas of the mouth where a conventional bridge would not be possible, such as long spans of missing teeth, or missing teeth towards the back of the jaw, with no posterior tooth remaining to act as an abutment.

In these situations, without implants, your only option would be a removable denture.

Implant supported bridges support themselves, and do not rely on, or compromise adjacent teeth. The have very good survival rates, and can restore function to an area of the mouth that would otherwise have been under-utilised.

The Process

Our professional team of dentists will discuss all your treatment options, pros, cons, risks and costs to help you reach your decision. A dentist then takes measurements of your teeth with dental impressions, and your occlusion with facebow measurements. This allows our dentist to recreate an exact model of your jaws and their relationship. Along with a 3D scan, our dentist collates all the information in order to plan your optimal implant treatment.

Implant surgery is carried out under local anaesthetic and sterile surgical conditions. After the implant is placed, your will receive some stiches to help the healing, and instructions on how to care for the site. Medicines will also be prescribed to aid the healing, and for pain relief.

Our dentist will review your implant site 10 days later, to check on the healing, and remove the stiches.

The implant will fuse to the bone in a process called osseointegration which takes an average of 3 months. For most patients you will now be ready for the prosthetic phase.

We work closely with our lab partners to fabricate your bridge. When it is ready, all aspects of the fit are checked, with minor adjustments if necessary.

You will receive instructions in how to care for your new implants and bridgework.

You will be reviewed frequently initially, with the intervals increasing until your implant reviews can take place as part of your regular dental check-up. Maintenance of all your teeth including the implant supported ones, remains vital as always.

Implants have an excellent survival rate, however a small percentage do experience complications, lifestyle factors among many other things can affect the success of your implant treatment. We will be with you every step of the way, and should complications occur, we will work with you to find a solution.

The Cost

Implant treatment is complex and multi-phased. The choice of implant system among other factors will have a significant impact on price. We would encourage you to meet with our dentist for a consultation, and discussion of your particular needs and treatment costs.

Implant Supported Bridge

An implant supported bridge, or implant supported fixed denture, is the replacement of multiple teeth in one span with implants and a fixed prosthesis.

 

Implant Supported Single Crown

When you’re missing a single tooth, you have the option of a conventional bridge. Alternatively we can place an implant supported crown. In situations where the adjacent teeth are pristine, or conversely unsuitable to act as bridge abutments, the implant supported crown is an ideal solution.

Removeable Denture

Conventional removable dentures rely on the underlying jaw bone for support. But overtime, the gum and bone shrinks and it becomes increasingly difficult to create a satisfactorily retentive denture.
