In cases where multiple teeth are missing, patients may be advised to get a Fixed Implant Bridge. Fixed Implant Bridges will maintain function, preserve the jaw bone and restore beauty.

What are Fixed Bridges?
Fixed Implant Bridges utilize dental implants placed in the jawbone (the foundation) and tooth-like porcelain restorations to replace missing teeth (fixed bridge). In addition to preserving the jawbone and surrounding teeth, bridges can help maintain the shape of your smile and prevent future dental complications. When teeth are missing, Fixed Implant Bridges are the most ideal dental restorations.
A removable bridge needs to be taken out for cleaning, but Fixed Implant Bridges are attached to dental implants for a permanent, worry-free solution that looks and acts like your natural teeth.
What are the Benefits of Fixed Bridges?
- A long-lasting solution that maintains the structure of surrounding teeth
- Fixed Implant Bridges look, feel and function like healthy natural teeth
- A strong structure that can withstand the force of normal biting and chewing
- Restoration of normal eating, talking, and smiling without worrying about your dental prosthetic becoming loose or falling out
- Bone preservation
- A treatment option that is often less expensive than replacing every missing tooth with an implant.
During your consultation with Dr. McFadden, he will evaluate your individual condition and all treatment options that are available to you will be presented.

What is the Treatment Process Like?
To begin the process of placing a fixed bridge, we place dental implants into the jawbone to support the bridge. Dental implants have become a fairly simple dental office procedure. Many times patients can leave with a fixed temporary bridge on the day of surgery. We are excited to be able to offer this cutting-edge treatment. Our procedures are done in one office, making this streamlined approach more accessible. We are proud to say that we do more immediate, fixed temporary bridges and crowns than almost anyone in Implant Dentistry.
What is the Cost?
The cost varies greatly depending upon the region, doctor’s training, implant type, number of implants and type of material used for the final restoration. For fixed implant bridges expect the cost to be $2,500 to 6,500 per tooth replaced. For example, a 3-unit implant bridge will have a cost range of $12,000 to 16,000.
