Implant Supported Bridge

Implant Supported Bridge on Clay Model

Because of the natural look and feel of the porcelain and the functional stability provided by the implants, implant supported bridges are an effective solution to replace multiple missing teeth.

An implant supported bridge is a dental bridge that is secured to two or more dental implants rather than relying on the adjacent natural teeth for support.

Implant supported bridges can be preferable to a traditional bridge that is supported by natural teeth. When a bridge uses natural teeth for attachment, the teeth must be prepared for crowns. After the bridge is placed, the natural teeth may be subjected to increased stress that may be damaging – particularly if the existing tooth, roots, or surrounding bone structure are already compromised.

Implants can provide a strong and secure long-term bridge support structure.
