Replacing all teeth in the upper and lower jaw
Dental bridges have become a common and fast growing alternative to wearing full dentures.
As with every implant option, a comprehensive evaluation is needed to determine an accurate diagnosis. Cambridge City Dental Implants plans and coordinates each treatment before it begins.
There are three types of full arch dental bridges including:
Fixed bridge — An implant supported bridge procedure is similar to those described for single or multiple dental implants.
- Full arch fixed hybrid implant bridge — Four or more implants are strategically placed along the jaw depending on the bone volume. The implants may be immediately loaded enabling chewing forces within 72 hours. A temporary fixed denture is set in place to allow function, appearance and healing to be observed over three months.
Following osseointegration, the temporary bridge is then replaced with a permanent fixed denture. Patients are able to taste and feel temperature better, as the fixed denture doesn’t obscure the mouth palate. Having replaced both teeth and gums, the hybrid denture is considered an advanced option.
This procedure requires an experienced dentist, implant surgeon and technicians and is commonly promoted as “all-on-four dental implants,” “smile in a day” or “same day smile”.
- Implant overdenture — A full arch detachable denture fits onto attachments which are anchored to the implants. The overdenture snaps into place onto various dental attachments to provide maximum retention and increased chewing ability.
Four implants are typically placed on the upper arch and 2-4 implants on the lower arch. Attachments may include either a ball, locator or bar for the denture to snap onto. To ensure thorough cleaning of the implant overdenture and its supporting structure they need to be removable. Made for comfort and to look natural, an implant overdenture is cheaper than a fixed option.
