Dental Implant With a Metal Ceramic Bridge
All on Six, Implant retained metal ceramic bridge.
This patient wanted the fit and feel of natural teeth, he chose to have 6 dental implants to replace the missing teeth, this would help stabilise his jaw bone and prevent “bone resorbtion”
Bone is a functional material, if it does not receive stress and strain, then like unused muscles it will waste away.
Dentures simply do not provide the bone with stress and strain, which is why the bone resorbs and patients need new dentures every few years.
Dental Implants are the only thing that will provide the bone with stress and strain and so preserve natural functional stability. This case was conducted more than 10 years ago and remains stable to this very day. Happy patient and Happy Dental Implant Team.
