Zirconium Implant Bridges
Zirconium Implant Bridge
Patient StoryWhen you’re missing several teeth, you have the option of replacing them with a partial denture, implant supported crowns or implant supported bridges.
Two or three implants can be placed adjacent to each other to retain multiple crowns. An implant supported bridge is a structure similar to a traditional dental bridge with the exception that it is supported by implants rather than natural teeth. Often there will be an implant for each tooth that is replaced and the crowns may be attached to each other for greater pressure distribution and stability. It is generally accepted that two implants can hold a three tooth bridge, three implants can hold a four or five tooth bridge and four to eight implants are required to hold longer bridges or full-arch bridges.
Zirconium Metal-Free Implant Retained Bridges
The use of Zirconium in fabricating our metal-free implant bridges provides many advantages including:
- Metal and Allergen-Free
- No Black Margins
- Non-Porous for Fast & Easy Cleaning
- Heat & Cold Transfers Slowly
Zirconium Ceramic is Biocompatible
Biocompatible materials can co-exist alongside living tissue without being toxic or injurious. Not only is zirconium biocompatible, it is metal-free and extremely strong. This makes it an ideal choice of material for crowns and bridges.
