Fixed Implant Bridges at Nova Implant Centre

A fixed implant-supported denture, also known as a fixed implant bridge, is a realistic set of artificial teeth that are securely anchored to dental implants to replace all of your teeth, complete with prosthetic gum tissue. Unlike removable dentures, a fixed bridge is screwed to the implants and cannot be taken out. The bridge can be made from materials such as acrylic, porcelain, or zirconia, and does not touch the roof of your mouth.

The attachment of a fixed bridge to dental implants has numerous benefits. It removes the need to take out your denture, stops bone loss, and keeps your facial features intact. For many people, it is a dependable, long-term treatment that will last a lifetime. The highest grade of implant treatment is ensured by our specialists’ ability to precisely insert the tooth replacements and prepare the jaw for dental implants.

Fixed Implant Bridge Candidates

Who Can get a Fixed Implant-Supported Bridge?

This type of dental bridge is particularly well-suited for patients who have recently lost most or all of their teeth. These patients typically have a substantial amount of jawbone, making them strong candidates for a fixed implant-supported bridge.

The most suitable candidates for this type of bridge should have healthy gum tissue and jawbone in the area of the gap. Additionally, they should be in good overall health and able to tolerate the oral surgery required for the placement of the dental implants. Patients should be aware that it will take them a few months to recover after surgery before the implants can support the bridge. Patients must have realistic expectations about their recovery.

What Our Happy Patients Have To Say

Healthy Teeth and Bones

Preventing Bone Resorption

When natural teeth are lost, the jawbone will start to resorb or break down unless replaced with dental implants. This process can cause a sunken-in or withdrawn appearance of the face as the jawbone is no longer stimulated by the natural roots of the teeth. However, implant-supported dental bridges can prevent this resorption and help patients achieve a fuller, more youthful appearance.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Answers to
Same-Day Denture FAQs

The main difference between Same-Day dentures and conventional dentures is that Same-Day dentures are only meant to be a temporary solution for missing teeth. 

Same-Day dentures, otherwise referred to as “Immediate dentures” are placed in your mouth the same day as your teeth are extracted. They will serve as a temporary set of dentures until the healing process is complete and you can then wear your permanent dentures.

Immediate dentures should be kept in for 24-48 hours after your tooth extraction surgery, without taking them out. Taking your Same-Day dentures out during this period can make it difficult to put them back in due to the swelling.

After the initial 48 hour period, you should continue to wear your dentures but you’ll be able to remove them for cleaning and to give your gums a rest.

The time it takes to make a set of temporary dentures varies from one dental clinic to the next. However, it will typically take a week or two to create your Immediate denture at most clinic. This may involve several trips to the dentist while they’re being made.

Since they are made before your tooth extraction procedure, your Same-Day dentures will be ready to go when you get your teeth out.

 

It’s important to note that Same-Day dentures aren’t necessary, however, they do make the tooth extraction process much simpler.

If you’re only getting a few teeth extracted, your dentist might not recommend Immediate dentures. However, if you’re doing a full extraction, your dentist will likely suggest Same-Day dentures. If you have a strong gag-reflex, Same-Day dentures might not be right for you.

Same-Day dentures, or Immediate dentures are designed to only be temporary. They are typically worn for a maximum of 6-8 months until the arrival of a permanent denture.

It’s important to note that your temporary dentures will likely need to be relined throughout the healing process to make your denture more comfortable. Although it’s a temporary solution, Same-Day dentures can last just as long as conventional or permanent dentures – we don’t advise on long-term use of Same-Day dentures.

The main benefit of getting Same-Day dentures is that they’re quick and convenient. Immediate dentures  protect your gum tissues and also help control bleeding.

One of the biggest reasons patients opt for getting Same-Day dentures is to avoid walking around in public with no teeth. A set of Immediate dentures will help you keep the function of your teeth to eat, speak, and smile confidently while you’re waiting for your permanent dentures.
