What is an implant bridge?

An implant bridge is a type of fixed restoration that can help fill in the gap where teeth have been extracted or removed. Several implants are inserted into the bone to act as a solid foundation to support porcelain restorations. Implant bridges are ideal for maintaining your facial shape after tooth loss while preserving your bone density with enough chewing power. They are highly realistic and function just like your natural teeth.

Implant-supported bridges vs. traditional bridges

Implant bridges require more commitment in terms of time and money. However, they come with many long-term advantages over conventional restorations. For one thing, implant bridges do not rely on support from the surrounding teeth, so there is no need to alter the adjacent teeth in any harmful ways or to remove any healthy tissue from the mouth. Additionally, implants are the only tooth replacement method that prevents further bone loss in the jaw. By replacing the tooth roots, implant bridges ensure your body continues to provide those areas with resources. The chewing power of implants keeps your mouth healthy, stable, and functioning long-term.

What can I expect from the procedure?

The placement of implant bridges may take several sessions to complete. The damaged teeth must first be extracted, and the bone must be properly prepped to receive implants. Dr. Sixto may need to perform bone grafting. The implants are then inserted, and temporary crowns are applied, which will stay in place while your implants heal. Finally, your new bridge is attached to the implants. Each step of the process is made stress-free, thanks to Dr. Sixto’s dedication to guest comfort and relaxation.
