Adding a Fixed Bridge onto Implants, Replacing Multiple Teeth
Having dental implants replacing your lost back teeth will give you new, unparalleled strength and stability that allows you to eat what you want. It will also preserve your jawbone and facial appearance.
After the initial examination, you can expect 4-5 additional visits until the final fixed bridge is permanently attached. It is normal to experience some minor bruising and swelling in the gum and soft tissue afterwards. Any discomfort is usually treated with an ordinary painkiller. You should expect to be able to work the next day.
Alternatives to a Fixed Bridge
Removable partial dentures
Removable partial dentures are an alternative to the procedure described above. This alternative is often perceived as uncomfortable and a bit complicated to use. This denture is made of plastic and metal, which affects its look. It is quite expensive to fabricate due to its many parts. However, the installation process is simple, and natural teeth are spared.
