Fixed Bridge Over Implants

In the situation when all teeth are missing, or all teeth are at the point that they need to be replaced, the best permanent solution is a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants.

Before dental implants were developed, there was no fixed solution available for people who had lost all of their teeth.  Today, it is possible to replace a full jaw with dental implants and a fixed bridge that results in a permanent solution that is stable and aesthetically attractive.

Benefits of a fixed bridge and dental implant in Mexico include:

  • Ability to eat and function like you have normal teeth.
  • Solution that is solid and stable that will last throughout your lifetime.
  • Preservation of facial appearance and the prevention of bone loss.

Treatment: The treatment procedure and the number of visits required will depend on the patient and the specific conditions of the dental implant in Mexico.  Typically, somewhere from eight to ten visits are sufficient to have a fixed bridge installed.  Most patients who have had a dental implant in Mexico of this type report that they were much more comfortable after the procedure than they had anticipated being.

INSTALLING THE FIXED BRIDGE – STEP BY STEP

 There are several options available for the course of this treatment for dental work in Mexico.  The one described below is just an example of one option that is available, but for a more specific treatment plan you should consult your dentist at Dental Implant Cancun to find out what is best for you and your specific situation.

1. Before The Procedure

Our Mexico Dentist will determine exactly what needs to be done and will prepare both himself and the patient for the upcoming treatment and procedure.

2. Installing The Implants

The first step in this procedure is to install dental implants to replace the lost tooth roots.  For the purposes of this case, five implants are used.  Temporary teeth are then attached that allow you to eat and function normally while you are waiting for your permanent bridge to be installed.  We may also choose to use a temporary denture, depending on the case.  Once you have been seen clinically, you will get more specific details about this step.

3. Attaching The Bridge

Depending on the specific case for dental implant, this will be done immediately or at another appointment.  The final bridge is securely installed on top of the implants.  With a full jaw replacement such as this, it normally takes 2-3 visits to have the bridge completely attached to the implants.

4. End Result

Once your new teeth are placed, it will be hard to tell the difference between them and your natural teeth, both for you and others.  Those who previously had dentures and opted for this procedure have been surprisingly overwhelmed with the positive results.  Many patients are thrilled that they no longer have to struggle with the messy glue that is used for dentures after a dental implant in Mexico.

 

What Are The Advantages Of Getting A Dental Implant Instead Of A Dental Bridge?

Mexican Dentists

Undergoing a single dental implant procedure has several different advantages over other types of tooth replacement options. Not only does a single dental implant in Mexico look more like a natural tooth, but it also doesn’t sacrifice the health of any adjacent teeth. A tooth-supported fixed bridge is another common treatment for a lost tooth, but it sacrifices the health of adjacent teeth because they must be ground down in order to support the bridge.

Another advantage of a single dental implant is that it preserves the jawbone better because it replaces the root of your natural tooth. A dental bridge on the other hand doesn’t replace the root and as a result some of the jawbone begins to deteriorate. A dental implant in Mexico is able to integrate into your jawbone and help keep it strong and healthy. A single implant is also easier to care for and is more aesthetically-pleasing than a bridge. The cement in dental bridges can wash out, which allows bacteria into the space beneath the bridge and affects the health of the anchor teeth.
