When do I need an dental implant bridge?
If you have several missing teeth together in one row, dental implant bridges may be done to replace the missing teeth more economically. The implant posts act as new achorage tooth roots with a porcelain bridge fitted.
Types of dental implant bridges
Dental implant bridges may be done
- Several missing teeth together
- Full edentulous jaw
Several missing teeth
All missing teeth
The number of dental implant posts to number of crowns within your dental bridge will depend on the number of missing teeth, jaw bone condition in each area, your dental implant positioning (anterior or posterior area) that affects biting load pressure of teeth.
Your implantologist will normally have a panoramic x-ray film or CT Scan take take a look at your bone condition in determining which region of you bone is good to hold implant posts. If there is insufficient height, width or density of bone, bone grafts may be recommended to enable the implant post to be securely embedded into your jaw one.
Bone on your front anterior area normally has more volume and density when compared to posterior regions where boneloss commonly occurs. If there are 4 front missing teeth, 2 implants with a bridge of 4-unit crowns may be possible. If the 4 missing gaps are the posterior area, 3 implants with a bridge of 4-unit crowns is usually recommended instead. The difference is that biting load pressure and force impact at the posterior area tends to be larger then the front.
