Fixed Full Arch Bridges

In cases where there are no teeth present or all of the teeth are failing there are solutions available for being able to get rid of dentures entirely. This is a so-called full arch bridge. It can take a variety of forms but essentially it uses 4 or more implants to support a full arch of teeth on one prosthesis (or if more implants are used then multiple smaller bridges can be used instead). These implants support the bridge entirely and so there is no pressure on the soft gums that can get irritated by dentures resting on them. Denture sore spots can become a thing of the past. These prostheses give the confidence and function of natural fixed back to you and can only be inserted or removed by a trained clinician.

Here's how it works:

In some cases, patients may be told that they are not suitable for dental implants because they have reduced bone density in their upper jaw. Luckily, thanks to advances in implant dentistry these patients may now benefit from a type of implant that provides an excellent alternative, zygomatic implants.

Zygomatic implants are used to provide support for implant bridgework where there has been a substantial amount of bone lost from the upper jaw and standard dental implants cannot be used on their own to support a bridge.

Zygomatic implants are longer than ordinary implants, placed inside the bulk of bone that forms the cheekbone.

For most procedures two zygomatic implants are used, along with a number of standard implants. This state-of-the-art treatment involves 3D scanning and the use of advanced treatment software that maps out the surgery on a computer for maximum safety and accuracy.
