Dental bridges are used to “bridge” the gap in a patient’s smile. A dental bridge can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. There are several types of dental bridges and our dentist will help you select one that is right for you.
It is extremely important to replace missing teeth. Once a tooth is lost, the bone begins to deteriorate. Over time, bone can suffer significant loss, affecting neighboring teeth and making replacement options challenging.
Dental Implants with Dental Bridge
Bridgework is an excellent option for replacing missing teeth. There are a number of ways that a dental bridge can be utilized. When used in conjunction with dental implants, a dental bridge is a highly effective, affordable and long lasting solution for missing teeth.
An implant secured dental bridge can use one or several dental implants to support the bridgework. The dental implant is placed by an oral surgeon, under the direction of Doctors Maria Burmaster and Valerie Hemphill. The dental bridge will be designed by our dentists and made at a dental laboratory using materials best suited for your condition.
Benefits of Implants with Dental Bridge
One of the primary benefits of an implant secured dental bridge is that they are extremely long lasting. In addition, because the bridgework is supported by dental implants, there is no risk of damage or stress to the natural teeth.
For patients who are missing a significant number of their teeth or all of their teeth, an implant supported partial denture or denture may be an excellent option.
