DENTAL IMPLANT BRIDGE - CANCUN
Implant Bridges are used when a patient has larger edentulous spaces (Bigger gaps of missing teeth) So instead of replacing each Individual tooth with a single Implant, with a correct diagnosis the doctors can determine the correct amount of Implants needed and where they need to be distributed, considering the biomechanics and biting forces as well as occlusion.
This option may offer a patient the chance to have a fixed implant bridge of 3 teeth using only 2 Dental implants. The fixed bridge is self supporting and will be permanently attached to the jawbone and ceases the need to change, alter any natural teeth remaining.
With a fixed bridge or removable partial denture, the bone that previously surrounded the tooth root may begin to resorb (deteriorate). Dental implants integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact.
In the long term, implants are esthetic, functional and comfortable. Gums and bone can recede around a fixed bridge or removable partial denture, leaving a visible defect. Resorbed bone beneath bridges or removable partial dentures can lead to a collapsed, unattractive smile. The cement holding bridges in place can wash out, allowing bacteria to decay teeth that anchor the bridge. In addition, removable partial dentures can move around in the mouth and reduce your ability to eat certain foods.
Dental Implant Bridge - Visits
A Dental Implant Bridge performed in Cancun will require a recent CT Scan -
The after a clinical evaluation and assessment of the Imagery the dental specialist will propose their recommendations based on their findings.
Dental implant bridge treatment durations vary on a case by case basis.
In simple cases (with the dental CT scan showing good bone quantity), there are 2 or 4 appointments over a 4-5 month period.
In more complex cases, where bone grafting is required, a 6-8 month period is required.
In some cases (when there is good bone quantity / quality), it may be possible to extract a teeth and place the implants in the same appointment – this is called an immediate loaded bridge. Otherwise, a 6 week to 4 month healing period is needed before the implants are placed.
