Implant Bridge

Thursday, November 5th, 2009

dimplantseminarfinal_Page_004_Image_0003An implant bridge is an excellent option for patients missing 3 or more teeth in series. Ideally, it is more mechanically advantageous to have one implant per implant crown. But an implant bridge can restore 3-4 implant crowns splinted in series over 2 or more implants. It is best not to restore implant bridges beyond the ratio of 2 implant crowns to 1 implant.  Three units to 2 fixtures is an acceptable ratio, but 1 unit to 1 fixture is the most mechanically favorable.
