Dental Implant Bridges

Implant Supported Dental bridges are a great way to replace missing teeth.  The bridge consists of two implant crowns on either end to place on the abutments and a pontic, which is the new tooth that replaces your missing tooth.  Bridges are made from high noble metal alloys, or from porcelain to ensure that they are strong and durable.

In the case of Implant Supported Bridges, the base for the bridge are the custom abutments that are torqued on top of the implants which have been previously inserted in the jaw bone. 

The bridge may take a little while to get used to, but after a few days it should feel like you have your own teeth back again. You should eat soft foods for the first few days after having your bridge placed. After the initial phase, you will be able to eat whatever you want with no issues.

If you are missing a tooth or many in the same arch, you should strongly consider an implant prosthetic replacement.  Besides the aesthetic disadvantage of missing a tooth, it could also cause structural changes to your mouth and jaw, as well as making it difficult to eat or speak properly.  Set up an appointment today to restore your smile.
