Normally, after implant placement, the time for the implant post to integrate with the jaw bone is 4-6 months. During this time, the doctor will restore temporary teeth to the area of the teeth that have just been implanted. This temporary tooth plays a very important role, bringing great benefits that you did not expect.

Temporary teeth on Implant have a very important role, not only bringing aesthetics to the customer but also meeting part of the chewing needs, while helping to shape the gums, ensuring the aesthetics of the gums after treatment.

Currently, there are many types of temporary teeth, which can be mentioned as glued temporary teeth, removable temporary teeth, fixed temporary teeth, temporary bridges, etc. Whatever type of temporary teeth you use, you need to pay attention. Take good care of your teeth, choose soft foods, limit hard foods, avoid strong and direct impacts on the temporary tooth area so as not to hurt the gums and teeth.

However, to make this type of tooth, the quality of the customer's jaw bone must have enough volume and firmness, then the temporary teeth will be attached to the newly inserted Implants.

Temporary dental bridge

Temporary dental bridges are often indicated for cases where one or more teeth are lost and the adjacent teeth also have a restoration plan. This dental bridge will be supported on the real teeth next to the missing teeth.
