Our team at Wilhoite Family Dental is committed to helping you achieve your most confident smile yet! If you are missing two or more consecutive teeth, an implant-supported bridge could be a wonderful solution to help you restore your smile. This bridge can provide a comfortable and natural-looking solution with many benefits.
Implant-supported bridges are very similar to traditional bridges. The biggest difference is that they attach to small titanium posts embedded in the jaw, instead of being supported by dental crowns placed over adjacent teeth.
The Difference Between Implant-Supported Bridges and Traditional Bridges
The first step to receiving an implant-supported bridge would be to undergo implant surgery. The amount of time varies for these surgeries and recovery time.
Implant-supported bridges have several advantages over traditional bridges. Implant-supported bridges do not rely on teeth for support, there is no need to remove healthy tissue. This type of bridge is also extremely stable, so you can feel confident that they will not move when you eat, speak and smile.
In addition, implants are the best restoration option for protecting your jawbone against atrophy. Implant-supported restoration replaces your entire tooth from root to crown–promoting lifelong oral health and wellness.
