Dental Bridges

implant bridge Glen EllynMany patients object to having “something removable” in their mouths. The most common complaints are about the bulky feeling of the tooth clasps holding the partial denture in place, food getting beneath the partial denture, or the appearance of the tooth clasps when the smile. Here is the method we use when we substitute dental bridges for a partial denture.


  1. Before the procedure: Three teeth towards the back of the lower jaw are missing. The only realistic replacement plan is installing a fixed bridge. The dental bridges contain all the teeth in one piece and will be anchored to dental implants.
  2. Installing the implants: The first task is to install the implants prior to dental bridges. This is normally completed in a single session. Sometimes a temporary bridge can be made soon after the implants are placed.
  3. Attaching the implant dental bridges: The implants must be given time to integrate with the jawbone before the permanent dental bridges are attached. This is normally done 3 to 4 months after the dental implant installation. The time varies depending on the bone quality and esthetic concerns.
  4. End result: partial denturesThe new bridge will handle all the pressure that your strong, natural back teeth did. You will have a stable, secure solution that enables eating whatever you want. Removable partial denture. This alternative is often perceived as uncomfortable and a bit complicated to use. Function can’t be compared to that of a bridge. This denture is made of metal and plastic, which affects its look. Partial dentures are less expensive, but may compromise the health of the teeth where they are clasped.
