Implant Supported Bridges

A dental implant supported bridge is typically used by patients who are missing several of their teeth. These are formed by placing a number of dental implants into the jawbone, then placing a biocompatible bridge atop those implants. This bridges gaps where individual dental implants cannot be correctly placed, typically because individual implants may cause uncomfortable amounts of pressure leading to implant failure. Some patients should not have implants placed in areas of the mouth with significant bone loss or near to other preexisting implants. Occasionally, a bone graft will be necessary to ensure dental implants set correctly. We will help you determine whether or not an implant supported bridge is right for you.
