Benefits with fixed bridge on implants:
In this case, when replacing three teeth in the far back of the mouth, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the only fixed alternative. Traditional dentures can't offer the same stability or function.
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.
INSTALLING THE FIXED BRIDGE– STEP-BY-STEP
The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult your dentist to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.
In all my years (60), until I began seeing Dr. Karen Strickland several years ago, I have never been at ease or satisfied with a dentist. Dr. Karen and her staff have taken the fear out of being in the dentist chair and replaced it with having a caring and fun exchange. Plus, I am extremely satisfied with the results. I can count on getting the best work on my teeth. When I move back to Mississippi, I will drive the extra miles to see her, it is worth it!
