This is a wonderful treatment option in order to replace badly broken down teeth, decayed teeth, or compromised teeth due to gum disease, or even replace uncomfortable ill fitting full dentures into fixed bridges either in the upper or lower jaws. This is a fixed prosthesis and stays in the mouth unless removed by the dentist. As with any other fixed bridge they need to be regularly cleaned by the patient using floss, brushes and other hygiene tools. Also, it is highly recommended that periodontal cleanings be performed every three months supervised by the periodontist in Los Angeles. Research shows that the long term success and periodontal health of dental implants depends on proper daily oral hygiene and supportive periodontal maintenance.
