The Same-Day implant system is designed to maximize the use of available bone. Its name is derived from the fact that it requires only four implants per dental arch. The Same-Day procedure has been widely researched and studies have shown that the Same-Day procedure provides as much support as multiple implant placements. An implant-supported bridge sits comfortably on four specifically placed implants. The results are less cost, less chair time, less healing, and a quicker smile. Most patients will have the entire procedure finished in one day.
Most people who learn that they will need several teeth removed are initially afraid of how their face will look. They are also unsure of what can be done to replace their missing teeth. Dentures stand out as the most well-known option, but many people find them to be uncomfortable. Dentures are also perceived as being needed by the elderly, so many younger people with missing teeth are not interested in feeling like they are older. There are several permanent options for multiple tooth replacement. You should consult with a periodontist to learn more about each one.
An implant-supported bridge is supported by implants and not by natural teeth. In most cases, when an implant-supported bridge is used, one implant is placed in the jawbone for each missing tooth. Then the crowns are connected to each other to form one piece. An implant-supported bridge reduces the pressure on the individual implants in the bone and spreads it across the entire bridge. If the implants will be placed next to natural teeth, the natural teeth and surrounding gums must be in good health.
