Replace a Span of Teeth with a Permanent Implant Bridge
Dental Implant bridges are typically spans of 2-6 teeth supported by two or three Tooth Implants. Implant Bridges are permanently fixed to Implants and they do not come in and out of the mouth like Dentures. Full Sedation Dentistry is available for this procedure in Rockville, Maryland.
Advantages of Tooth Implant Bridges vs Natural Teeth Bridges:
The most popular implant bridges are 3 and 4 teeth bridges that contain 2 Dental Implants and support spans of 3 or 4 implant teeth. Dental Implant Bridges look like teeth, have function similar to teeth and typically will last a lifetime. Implant Bridges DO NOT DECAY and this is a huge advantage over natural tooth bridges since bridged teeth are more difficult to clean than individual teeth. Decay and tooth rot is the primary cause of Bridge failure for Natural Tooth Bridges.
Dental Implant Bridges are made the same exact way as Bridges on natural teeth except the Bridge is supported by implants instead of Natural Teeth. Bridges at Natural Dentist Associates are typically made of Zirconia and Porcelain, do not contain any metals and are Tooth Colored throughout.
One Dental Implant can sometimes support Two Implant Teeth called an Implant Cantilever Bridge
2 teeth bridges are called cantilever bridges. In this case the Implant Dentist will place one Dental Implant that will support 2 teeth. The Implant will be placed in one of the two lost tooth sites, but never in the middle. A 4 teeth Dental Implant Bridge is done by placing 2 implants and a Bridge of 4 teeth. 5 and 6 teeth Bridges are best done with 3 dental implants. In many cases it is better to do multiple bridges such as 2 x 3 teeth bridges rather than 1 x 6 teeth bridges.
All on 4 implant procedure involves 4-6 dental implants and replaces a full upper or lower set of teeth with a full arch set of teeth or a full one piece implant bridge. All on 4 is much more affordable than placing a full mouth of individual implants and crowns.
