Choose Unparalleled Stability with Implant-supported Bridges
Restoring Your Smile
Some people may lose their natural teeth due to accidental damage or advanced decay. This can significantly impact their smile, resulting in self-consciousness or discomfort while eating. Implant-support bridges are a durable, natural-looking solution for tooth loss. Implants and implant-supported restorations not only replace the visible portion of the tooth but also the roots, allowing for increased stability, comfort, and greater preservation of the jawbone.
There are many benefits to choosing an implant-supported bridge over other tooth replacement options. Most other methods, including traditional bridges and partial dentures, require support from natural teeth. This can result in a loss of stability and may cause pressure on the jawbone. Implants are secured in the jaw itself, so they require no additional support to stay in place. Over time, the look of fixed bridges and partial dentures may begin to degrade. Many clients notice that their gums begin to recede, leaving a visible gap. The cement used to bond fixed bridges to the gums can erode, creating gaps where bacteria can grow. Rather than degrading with age, implant-supported restorations maintain their natural look for many years to come. These bridges are stable and comfortable, and will never shift inside the mouth. Implant-supported restorations are designed to look and function just like natural teeth.
The Treatment Process
Once you are found to be a good candidate for this type of bridge, Dr. Weiss will surgically insert the implants into your jaw. These posts need time to bond with the bone, so you will be provided with a temporary restoration to wear until healing is complete. In roughly four to six months, the implants will be anchored to your jawbone, creating a strong foundation for your new teeth. In some cases, abutments are then attached to the posts to complete the first steps of implant placement. These abutments will be temporarily capped to allow your gums to heal before the final step of the procedure. In the final stage, your implant-supported bridge will be attached to the abutments. These teeth are uniquely crafted to match your natural teeth and complement your smile.
