Process of 3 Unit Bridge

First, it is necessary to carry out an examination and a deep cleaning in the side of the gap to check the health of the adjacent teeth that will function as support(abutment teeth) for the false tooth.

This step helps remove tartar and bacteria below the gum line to prevent cavities in the future.

The dentist proceeds to polish the enamel of the teeth and give them the correct shape to place the crowns to fill the gap.

The dentist will make a mold by taking a dental impression, then sent to the laboratory to create the bridge. The patient will receive a temporary bridge, in which the permanent is ready.


Once the dental bridge is ready, the patient will have to make a new appointment and get the temporary bridge removed, and then the dentist will place the new dental bridge.

There, the dentist will check the bite and, if the bridge does not require any adjustment, finally, the dental bridge will be fixed to the previously worked teeth.

    Implant Supported Bridge
    (Fixed Bridges)

    Bridges with implants differ from the others because instead of using the patient’s teeth as pontics, they will be implants that will support the structure. They are used in patients who lack a greater number of teeth or who require extraordinary measures.

    Some of the benefits that this type of dental bridges represent are that they help preserve the jaw, stimulate bone regeneration, and prevent future dental problems. In addition, dental bridges act very similar to your natural teeth and offer greater resistance to fractures.

    However, bridges with implants are more expensive and require a longer time to place.

    On average, the prices of a bridge with 2 implants in Mexico is from USD 3,150, and it requires three phases, the first one for implant placement, the second one that is the healing period and the third one that is the placement of the fixed bridge.

    Depending on your case, the doctor should guide you on which bridge alternative is best for you.
