Fixed Bridge On Dental Implants
The first step to replacing a full arch of teeth is a consultation with Dr. Hurst at NuSmyle Dental in Logan, Utah. Through the consultation, he can determine what needs to be done and prepare both himself and you as the patient for the coming treatment procedure.
Next is installing dental implants to replace the lost tooth roots. In this case, five dental implants are used. Temporary teeth are attached that enable you to eat and function like normal while waiting for the permanent fixed bridge to be installed
Once the dental implants have completely healed and fused with the jaw bone, the permanent fixed bridge is securely installed on top of the dental implants. Your new teeth should be hard to tell from natural teeth – both for you and others. People who have had traditional dentures before getting a fixed bridge often describe this as an overwhelming and very positive experience.
All Teeth Missing
Before dental implants, there were no fixed solutions available for people who lost all their teeth. Many settled for dentures that stayed on the gums with adhesive. But denture patients found that dentures caused almost as many problems as they solved. With the advances in implant dentistry, it is now possible to replace a full set of teeth with dental implants and a fixed bridge that results in a permanent, stable, beautiful, natural looking solution.
