Implant Retained Bridges
Dealing with a loss of multiple teeth related to trauma, an infection or decay can be a stressful and challenging situation. One solution for this issue would be to have dental implants installed. To keep these secure, you may need to have an implant retained bridge placed as well.
What is an Implant Retained Bridge?
Dental implants are a very common way to replace a broken or missing tooth. If you have multiple replacement teeth, you may need to have something to bridge them all together to keep them secure. An implant retained bridge will fuse these teeth together by creating a bridge with healthy teeth.
Why do you need an Implant Retained Bridge?
There are many situations when you will need to have an implant retained bridge put in. If you have multiple implants in your mouth already, the bridge could be a great way to improve the overall structure.
What makes you a good candidate for an Implant Retained Bridge?
Anyone that has multiple dental implants in their mouth should consider getting an implant retained bridge. A dentist and oral surgeon will determine if you are a good candidate for this, or if there are other solutions that could be better. If you do not have any healthy teeth to fuse the bridge, you may need to find another solution.
What happens during the procedure for an implant retained bridge?
Normally, you will receive an implant retained bridge after the implants are put in. The bridge will then be put in place if the implants need to be properly secured. The process of adding a bridge will require a measurement for the bridge and then a fitting.
