Fixed implant bridges

Dental implant is best known for replacement of single missing tooth. However they can also be used to replace multiple missing teeth by placing multiple implants that are connected by bridges subsequently, referred to as fixed implant bridges. Replacing multiple teeth by fixed implant bridges is advantageous as it preserves the remaining bone thus maintaining facial form and functionality. In conventional bridges, adjacent teeth are reduced in size to provide support and accommodate bridge placed over it . However in fixed implant bridges, this isn’t the case thereby saving adjacent teeth.
