An implant-supported bridge is a dental prosthesis that replaces multiple missing teeth in a row. Unlike a traditional dental bridge, which relies on adjacent healthy teeth for support, an implant-supported bridge is anchored by dental implants that are surgically placed into the jawbone.
Implant-supported bridges offer numerous advantages. They preserve healthy teeth by eliminating the need for alterations required by traditional bridges. These bridges, anchored to the jawbone, mimic natural teeth, enhancing comfort during eating and speaking. They prevent bone loss associated with tooth loss, preserving facial structure. Designed for longevity with proper care, they provide a cost-effective tooth replacement solution. Additionally, they restore the look and feel of natural teeth.
Before deciding on an implant-supported bridge, it’s essential to have a consultation with Dr. Brucci to discuss if this solution is suitable for you. He will take into account many factors, including your overall oral health, the number of teeth you need to replace, and the condition of your jawbone.
