Fixed Bridge

dentalimplant7To fix a conventional bridge, the neighboring teeth have to be ground. The new bridge can be anchored or cemented firmly to the posts produced in this way.

Advantages:

  • It is not necessary to carry out a surgical operation.

Disadvantages:

  • The healthy neighboring teeth have to be ground so vital tooth substance is lost forever.
  • Ground teeth can die because of the severe damage.
  • The major stress that has to be borne by the ground neighboring teeth (posts) during chewing can lead to their premature loss.
  • Caries can develop in the ground post teeth that carry the bridge.
  • Bone atrophy can occur because of the lack of stress on the bone between the posts.
