All Teeth Missing

Benefits of a fixed bridge on implants

Best Full-Arch Replacement in Dallas, TX

When all teeth are missing or in such condition that they need to be replaced, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the best permanent solution.

Before dental implants, there was no fixed solution available for people who lost all of their teeth. Today, it is possible to replace a full arch of teeth with dental implants and a fixed bridge that results in a permanent, stable and highly aesthetic solution.

  • Lets you eat and function like having natural teeth
  • A solid, stable solution that will serve you for life
  • Preserves your facial appearance and prevents bone loss 

Treatment:

The treatment procedure and number of visits is largely dependent on the specific conditions. But all in all, 8-10 visits should be enough to have a fixed bridge installed. Most patients report that they were much more comfortable following the procedure than they had anticipated.

Course of Treatment: Installing the Fixed Bridge – STEP-BY-STEP

The course of treatment described here is one of several options available. Consult your dentist to find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific condition.

1: Before the procedure

The dentist determines what needs to be done and prepares both himself and the patient for the coming treatment procedure.

2: Installing the implants

The first step is installing dental implants to replace the lost tooth roots. In this case, five implants are used. Temporary teeth are attached that enable you to eat and function like normal while waiting for the permanent bridge to be installed.

3: Attaching the bridge

The final bridge is securely installed on top of the implants. With a full jaw replacement like this, it normally takes 2-3 visits to have the bridge completely attached.

4: End result

Your new teeth should be hard to tell from natural – both for you and others. People who have had traditional dentures before getting a fixed bridge often describe this as an overwhelming and very positive experience.

Alternatives to a Fixed Bridge

Removable Overdenture

Removable Overdenture

An alternative to a fixed bridge is a removable overdenture, which is anchored on implants. The old-fashioned denture has many disadvantages and should be avoided if possible.

Removable, implant anchored overdenture

Removable, implant anchored overdenture

A removable full denture that is connected to either a ball or bar attachment, which in turn is anchored on two or more implants in the front part of the jaw. 

The implants help keep the denture in place and provide better function and comfort. Cost is usually the reason why this solution is chosen over a fixed bridge – although the end result can’t be compared.

Removable full denture

Removable full denture

A denture that is loosely placed on top of the gum to cover the lost teeth. This alternative has no real advantages – except for its low price and easy installation. 

The disadvantages are many: discomfort in eating, poor esthetics, affected speech, and sore gums from denture movement. Moreover, a full denture placed in the upper jaw severely reduces the sense of taste.

I highly recommend this dentist to anyone seeking quality, friendly, and honest treatment! My first appointment was postponed due to a staff member calling in sick, but it was totally worth the wait. Every staff member I interacted with, from the numerous phone calls leading up to my appointment to the final 'see you next time' I received upon leaving, was above any standard I had experienced prior. Overall, a great experience.

I became unsatisfied with my dentist in Cedar Hill and was looking for a new one. I was recommended her by my nutritionist and I was not disappointed. The hygienist was super friendly and transparent and I was also able to get an appointment for permanent retainers. I am 100 satisfied with the services.
