If you have a tooth gap with three adjacent teeth missing and the general requirements for implantation (good condition, quantity and quality of bone material), the gap can be closed with a total of 3 implants and 3 implant-retained crowns.
Advantages are that adjacent teeth do not have to be ground down and the dentures are very stable, as they are all individually fastened to implants.
After examining and taking an X-ray or CT scan, the implantologist places the implants in the gaps between the teeth during a short operation. During the healing phase of about 3 months, the implants grow together with the jawbone. The dentist releases the implants, inserts the gingivaformer and selects the appropriate implant head. The dental technician takes impressions on the basis of which he makes the final crowns on the implants, which are then fastened to the implants with screws.
If you are missing 3 adjacent teeth and your jawbone meets the general requirements of implantation, the gap can be closed with 2 implants and an implant-supported 3-limb bridge.
The advantage is that adjacent teeth do not have to be ground down and it is cheaper than the dentures for 3 implants.
After the preliminary examination and planning, the oral surgeon inserts the implants into the jawbone. At the end of the healing phase, the gingiva formation and the impression taking follow, on the basis of which the dental technician makes the implant-supported bridge.
