Implant-Supported Bridges – Great for Replacing Multiple Missing Teeth

Dental implants have provided dentists with many different ways of achieving the same goal: replacing your missing teeth. Traditionally speaking, this was often done using a procedure known as dental bridges. Dental bridges are still offered today as an inexpensive alternative to replacing missing teeth, but they are often restrictive and do not provide the same durability and strength as dental implants.

Benefits of Implant-Supported Bridges in Woodland Hills

A newer, more advanced and innovative of bridging the gaps are now performed using dental implant-supported bridges. An implant-supported bridge is a type of dental prosthesis (very much like dentures) that is supported by one or more dental implants to replace multiple missing teeth. Oftentimes implant-supported bridges are only considered when three or more teeth are missing. Any less than this and you will be better off opting for 1 or 2 individual dental implants.

Implant-supported bridges offer many benefits over their traditional counterpart:

  • Longevity. Dental implants, by default, are built to last. They are closest option we currently have to actual, real teeth. As such, they may last a lifetime with proper care (like any normal tooth would require). Traditional tooth-supported bridges may last up to 10 years before having to be replaced. They are also not as stable as dental implants and may be considered very outdated by some dentists.
  • Preserves healthy bone. When we are missing teeth, the jawbone that once supported a tooth begins to deteriorate. Placing a dental implant into the jawbone will help preserve and stimulate the jawbone. With traditional tooth-supported bridges, this is not the case.
  • Protects adjacent healthy teeth. Tooth-supported bridges often require grinding away healthy, adjacent teeth in order to help the bridge fit properly. With implant-supported bridges, this isn’t the case. Your healthy teeth remain unaffected and will not cause any shifts.
