Implant-supported bridges are an excellent way to replace missing teeth. Our dentists commonly recommend this option for patients who have lost multiple teeth in sequence or when missing teeth occur in a region of the mouth where too much pressure is exerted on individual dental implants.

With implant-supported bridges, your dental bridge will be supported by dental implants instead of your adjacent natural teeth. This preserves the strength of your adjacent teeth and promotes better long term oral health. The number of dental implants used will vary based on the number of missing teeth being replaced and the placement of the dental bridge.

It is important for your natural teeth, gum tissue, and jawbone near the implant-supported bridge to be in good health prior to undergoing the dental implant procedure. Our dentists will treat any gum disease before placing the implants and if there is not enough bone to support the dental implant, our dentists can perform a bone graft to ensure successful results.

Our dentists can achieve beautiful, natural looking results with implant-supported bridges, allowing you to smile with confidence after your procedure.
