Your teeth are important, not just for the obvious function of chewing and biting, but also for maintaining your self-esteem too. If you’ve lost teeth for whatever reason, especially around the front of the mouth, this can be a never-ending source of embarrassment. Fortunately, there’s a perfect solution that will restore both your smile and self-esteem – multiple implant bridges.
This ultra-realistic looking solution provides natural-looking results. Once in place, the implant will be virtually indistinguishable from your other teeth. Not only do these dental implants restore your image, but they also improve your ability to bite and chew. So, whether you’ve lost your teeth as a result of an accident or they’ve fallen out or been removed for another reason; you should consider a replacement implant.
Dental bridges of this nature comprise a titanium plate with small abutments to which crowns are attached. Once fitted in place, they remain secure, providing an incredibly realistic effect that will create the desired illusion.
Before any treatment can take place, you’ll first be invited along for a consultation. An in-depth examination will be carried out, and we’ll discuss any concerns and answer any questions you might have. A review of your dental history will be performed, x-rays taken, and moulds created of your teeth and gums. In some cases, a CT scan may be required to determine your suitability for multiple implant bridges.
Sometimes, we find that the patient’s jawbone is too soft or not thick enough to support dental implants. If this is the case, a bone graft will be performed to reinforce the jawbone. Please note that if we have to carry out a bone graft, it can take five months for the area to heal, delaying any further treatment.
If all goes to plan, you’ll be scheduled in for a treatment to fit your new implant. Prior to fitting multiple implant bridges, the roots of your missing teeth will be removed and replaced with a titanium plate by a trained periodontist or oral surgeon. A small incision will be made, and healing caps fitted to ensure that the gum heals correctly. Please note that it can take several months for the plate to fuse with the jawbone and fully heal.
The next step is to choose the most appropriate type of bridge implant to use. Depending on which option is selected, the treatment process and length will vary. Rest assured that this will be discussed with you in detail, so you know precisely what is occurring. The final step is to test the metal framework for any issues. If none are discovered and the fit is correct, the rest of the bridge will be completed.
The beauty of multiple implant bridges is that they are superior to partial dentures in terms of comfort and how secure they feel. They fuse with your jawbone, so they won’t slip or be yanked out while chewing. They also won’t make any noise due to slipping or cause damage to the bone or surrounding teeth. The materials we use also ensure that the implant won’t degrade over time. No wonder this treatment is so popular with our patients!
