Replacing a Single Missing Tooth using Dental Implants:


1: Before the procedure 
Our 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
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.
 
However, this alternative has two main disadvantages: continuous bone resorbtion in the edentulous area, and sacrificing healthy teeth on behalf of the bridge.
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 
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.
