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.

Tooth Bridge versus Implant Bridge

There are advantages and considerations between a tooth bridge and implant-supported bridges.

For tooth bridges, one of its main benefits is the short treatment time. A tooth bridge can be competed within 2 to 3 visits in just days. Dental bridges are fixed, strong and easily maintaine. Its main downside is that it will need healthy adjacent natural teeth for achorage to hold your tooth bridges. The teeth to the missing gap will also need to be preped down tampering otherwise healthy teeth. Biting load is constantly applied onto the natural achorage teeth. Overtime, especially for long span bridges, can weaken and loosen these supporting achor teeth.

On the other hand, dental implant bridges can be done at any region without the need for anchorage supporting teeth. Dental bridges are placed over titanium implant posts that is strong and does not decay over time. Implant-supported bridges can take biting load pressure. It fixed, cared for and functions simliar to natural teeth. Its main downside is treatment timings can send across 2 months or more as the implant post needs to heal before the bridges are placed over.
