Upper Provisional bridge permanently attached the same day as the implants are inserted.

Immediate Load Provisional

In one day patients can receive a functional set of teeth known as a provisional fixed bridge attached to 4 or 5 or even 6 implants.Some practitioners call this treatment “The All-On- 4 Concept”.

Patients do not need to wear a denture anymore when implants are inserted and the healing process is taking place.

Dentists need to give patients this option when discussing treatment options to replace missing teeth.Multiple studies have shown that placing multiple implants across the arch enables the dentist to insert a provisional bridge in the shape of an arch which stabilizes the implants during the healing process.

After a healing process of 3-6 months the definitive permanent bridge is then fabricated.
