What are implant bridges?

Implant bridges are a lot like regular dental bridges. They’re a prosthetic tooth replacement that bridges the gap between missing teeth.

However, the difference between implants and regular bridges is how they get placed in your mouth. For a regular bridge, your provider uses a crown placed on your natural tooth to hold the bridge in place. 

With an implant bridge, the prosthetic device is held in place with a titanium post, also called a dental implant, inserted into your jaw. Implant bridges are more secure and durable than regular bridges because they rely on anchors that fuse to your jawbone. 

What are the advantages of implant bridges?

Implant bridges make a great replacement option for missing teeth. Some of the advantages of implant bridges include:

  • Permanent tooth replacement
  • Strong and durable
  • Highly functional
  • Preserves your jawbone
  • Natural look

One of the biggest advantages of implant bridges is their reliability. You don’t have to worry about your bridge slipping or falling out unexpectedly. They’re very durable and can last a lifetime with regular dental care. 

 

Am I a candidate for implant bridges?

The experts at Dental Implant Specialists of Florida may consider you a candidate for implant bridges if you’re missing one to three teeth in a row and have no gum disease. You also need to have an adequate jawbone to support the dental implant for your bridge.

If you have gum disease or bone degeneration, Dental Implant Specialists of Florida can provide the care you need to restore gum and bone health so you can get the implant bridge. They offer gum scaling, gum grafts, and bone regeneration. 

What is the process for getting implant bridges?

Your provider at Dental Implant Specialists of Florida reviews the process for getting implant bridges during your initial consultation. First, they place the dental implant into your jawbone.

Dental Implant Specialists of Florida has same-day dental implants, and your provider may be able to attach a temporary bridge the same day you get the dental implant. That means you get your new smile without waiting weeks for the implant to fuse with your jawbone. Then, you return one time to have the custom-made bridge attached to the implant.

They custom-make your implant bridge so it blends in with your natural teeth.
