What Is an Implant-Supported Bridge?

Learn the strength and aesthetics that implant-supported bridges provide with Dr. Amelia Aristodemo for a seamless smile restoration in this video.

An implant-supported bridge is an advanced dental restoration option that provides a durable and functional solution for replacing multiple missing teeth. Unlike a traditional bridge, which relies on natural teeth as anchors, an implant-supported bridge is anchored by dental implants. Here’s a closer look at the process and benefits:

1. Foundation with Dental Implants: Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone to serve as the foundation for the bridge. These implants act as artificial tooth roots, providing strong and stable support for the bridge.

2. Integration Period: After the implants are placed, a period of integration, or osseointegration, is necessary. During this time, the implants fuse with the jawbone, creating a secure bond that mimics the natural root structure of teeth. This process ensures that the bridge will have a solid foundation and can take several months.

3. Final Restoration: Once the implants have fully integrated with the bone, the final bridge is crafted and placed over the implants. This bridge is custom-made to match the appearance of your natural teeth and fit comfortably in your mouth, ensuring a seamless addition to your smile.

4. Benefits: Implant-supported bridges offer numerous advantages, including strong retention, improved function, and the prevention of bone loss in the jaw. Because they do not rely on adjacent natural teeth for support, they also help preserve the health of remaining teeth by avoiding the need to alter these teeth as anchors.

This procedure is particularly beneficial for individuals missing multiple teeth in a row, offering a solution that is both aesthetically pleasing and highly functional. Implant-supported bridges restore the ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence, closely mimicking the look and feel of natural teeth.
