Implant dentistry: Everything to know about an implant-supported bridge

Many are choosing implant dentistry for teeth replacement over a traditional fixed bridge and removable partial dentures. An implant-supported bridge offers unique advantages over a traditional fixed bridge. By learning more about implant-supported bridge treatment and who it is ideal for, you can decide if treatment is right for you.

What is an implant-supported bridge?

An implant-supported bridge is a form of teeth replacement that uses dental implants, dental abutments, and a dental bridge to replace a section of missing teeth. The dental implants, which are screw-like posts of titanium material, are fixed into the jaw and serve as the support for the dental bridge. The abutment and the bridge (which consists of several replacement teeth that are indistinguishable from natural teeth) are attached on a follow-up procedure after osseointegration between the implants and the jawbone takes place.

What are the benefits of an implant-supported bridge?

When compared with a traditional dental bridge, which is supported by adjacent teeth, an implant-supported bridge offers a much stronger and more reliable solution that can last for well beyond a decade. An implant-supported bridge can also preserve jawbone density. They are also permanent solutions, whereas a removable partial denture must be removed and cleaned regularly.

Who should consider an implant-supported bridge?

An implant-supported bridge is an ideal solution for anyone in replacing a section of missing teeth and wants a restoration that looks and functions the same as natural teeth. It is important to note, however, that the dental implants process takes longer than alternative solutions due to the need for a surgical procedure and osseointegration must take place between the jawbone and the implants.

What are other implant dentistry options?

A dentist may recommend an implant-supported crown if only one tooth is being replaced, or they may recommend an implant-supported denture to replace an entire row of missing teeth. The best way to determine which implant dentistry option is most appropriate according to your treatment goals and preferences is to visit with a dentist.

How can I take care of my implant-supported bridge?

Another benefit of implant dentistry is that dental implants are easy to care for with good oral hygiene, smart dietary choices, and regular check-up and cleaning visits with the dentist. A dentist may also recommend wearing a nightguard for bruxism if the patient grinds their teeth at night.
