These phrases all refer to a basic stabilizing effect of locking 4 or more angled implants together at the time of placement in the jaw in a temporary fixed bridge or modified denture.
If you have few or no teeth, an existing denture you wish to get rid of, you are probably a candidate. In the past, bone grafting and long healing periods were needed to provide enough bone for implant supported fixed bridges. With 3D CT scans, and new techniques, we are often able to locate enough usable bone for implant placement.
When adequate bone is identified in certain areas, a surgeon-dentist-lab technician team can simultaneously place implants, and secure them with special parts to a pre-made or existing bridge or denture. In this way a patient can walk in with no teeth (or a removable denture) and walk out the same day with a fixed set of teeth.
The main disadvantage is
Your fixed bridge is customized just for you. There are several different configurations and combinations of implants and fixed bridges that will work. Much of the decision on which combination will work best is dependant on the location and amount of available bone as well as the patient’s esthetic and speech requirements.
In order to get started, you can schedule a free consultation with Dr. Neal to discuss your particular needs and he can give you an estimated fee range fro your situation. After this Dr. Neal can schedule the appropriate records needed to begin. You will meet with Dr. Neal and the surgeon to plan your transformation day.
After the placement of the implants and fixed bridge, you will have a few follow up appointments to observe proper healing and fit of the bridge.
At about 6 months, the implants will be evaluated for integration and placement of the final fixed bridge.
Many local dental offices offer this great service. These offices work closely with the local oral surgeon and dental lab to provide the same level of care as the larger centrally located implant clinic. In addition you have the advantage of a neighborhood dentist to maintain your new implant supported fixed bridge as well as all of your, and your family’s regular dental care.
