Treatment Process for

Implant-supported Bridge

How are dental implants used to replace multiple teeth with a fixed bridge?

implant-bridge

When a few adjacent teeth are missing or badly damaged, multiple dental implants may be placed to support a dental bridge. 

This advantageous alternative avoids the hassle involved with the use of partial removable dentures. It makes the use of metallic clasps unnecessary, resulting in better esthetics, and causes no harm to adjacent teeth.

The result is a more convenient, fixed, esthetic solution that enhances quality of life while keeping your teeth healthy.

Minimally invasive implant surgery

Your dentist will perform an atraumatic keyhole implant surgery by using the 3D template. one or more dental implants will be placed and used for attaching to your new teeth.

How can technological advances benefit my implant placement?

Guided surgery provides the dentist with a custom, pre-planned digital 3D surgical template which guides the doctor during implant placement surgery to the desired drilling angle and depth.

Having everything digitally-planned ahead of surgery makes it possible to produce a provisional restoration which lets you leave the doctor’s office with a full smile immediately after implant placement. This saves you time in the dentist’s office and makes the procedure more accurate, safe, and convenient.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants replace missing roots, and can support dental restorations that look and feel just like your own. You will be able to eat and drink whatever you like without the inconveniences of removable dentures, partials or missing teeth.


On the other hand, in cases where no implant is placed, bone resorption may lead to ill-fitting dentures which don’t provide a comfortable or effective solution for the patient.

Are tooth implants right for me?

Chances are, if you have lost a tooth or teeth, tooth implants will be a great solution for you. However, for a very small percentage of individuals, they may not be appropriate. For instance, if you have inadequate bone tissue, cancer or diabetes, implants may not be the best solution. As always, it is best to discuss this with your dentist.
