Bridge with Dental Implants
If there are multiple missing teeth, implant-supported bridges can be used to replace them.
A bridge is a permanent prosthetic appliance that is created when a number of crowns are connected to each other to form one piece.
An implant-supported bridge is similar to a regular bridge, but it is supported by implants and not by natural teeth. Most commonly, only two dental implants are used to replace 3 to 4 missing teeth. This concept is also commonly used when a patient has lost all of their teeth to provide them with a third set of ‘teeth’. This option is as close as it comes to feeling like you have natural teeth again.
Not every crown (artificial tooth) within the bridge will need an implant. When multiple implants are required, they can all be placed during the same appointment.
The crowns that make up a dental bridge are made from porcelain to create a natural, translucent, colour stable appearance.
An implant-supported bridge will give you a fixed, functional and natural feel that is not possible with other treatment options.
