An implant-supported bridge is similar to a regular dental bridge, but it is supported by implants and not by natural teeth.
This treatment is used when the patient suffers from the loss of more than one tooth, causing functional and aesthetic problems. This treatment replaces the old and uncomfortable removable prosthesis, replacing the teeth with a fixed solution.
Thanks to this method, it is not necessary to place one implant per missing tooth, this way we use fewer implants to place a bridge and crowns are connected to each other and form one piece.
An implant is a truncated cone of titanium that, accompanied by a porcelain crown, once placed, replaces the root of the lost tooth, functioning like a natural one, in appearance and in resistance.
The dentist will decide, based on your specific situation, to use either a cement-retained crown or a screw-retained crown which will be attached to the single-unit implant head.
Immediate loading implants are characterized by the immediate placement of a provisional dental prosthesis on an implant, which leads to more comfort and aesthetics rehabilitation for the patient from the same day of the implant, without compromising the primary stability during the time of osseointegration.
They are prostheses or ceramic crowns placed on top of one or more implants. This is recommended in those cases where patients suffer partial or total absence of teeth (edentulous).
Fixed prostheses or dental bridges are fixed prosthetic devices that the dentist cements over your natural teeth to cover a damaged tooth.
It is an innovative ceramic with very satisfactory aesthetic results, that provides strength and superior resistance to other types of materials.
The zirconium pieces are made by ceramic on the outside and zirconium on the inside, which offers a very high resistance. Its white color makes its aesthetics perfect because you will never see the metal line, characteristic to porcelain metal crowns.
