Traditional and Implant-Secured Bridges
Traditionally, dental bridges are supported by teeth adjacent to a missing tooth gap. Natural teeth are capped off by dental implants that keep the prosthetic in place. However, traditional dental bridges do not fully restore the function of the bite. Traditional dental bridges will also need to be replaced over time.
Alternatively, dental implants may be used to support a bridge. Dental implants fuse with the jaw bone after they are inserted into the mouth. Because of this, implants provide stability to the smile, just like natural teeth. Although it may take longer for patients to receive implant-supported bridges, we recommend them over traditional options.
Dental Bridge Treatment
We will make sure that you are in good oral health before you receive a bridge. Then, we will take dental impressions. These impressions are used to make the bridge prosthetic. For patients receiving implant-secured bridges, we will also make sure that they have enough bone tissue in the mouth. Implants require bone tissue to stabilize dental restorations. We will place several implants to support a dental bridge. The implants will fuse to the jaw bone over 3 to 6 months. Once the implants have healed, we will attach the bridge.
