If you have multiple missing teeth, there is more than one option available. A frequent choice among dentists and patients is a bridge. The traditional bridge is a fine option, but some don’t like that it. This is because requires filing down and fitting the surrounding teeth with a crown that is connected to the dental replacements, bridging the gap between them. With a bridge implant, your existing teeth remain intact as they are, while the support structure is placed in your jaw.
If a consultation with your Palm City/Stuart dentist concludes that a bridge implant is the best option for you, you can expect a few steps along the way. The process of implanting a bridge isn’t very different from a single implant. When you come in, you’ll have the implants surgically put into place and, a short time later, the healing caps, which help the crowns blend into your gums naturally . The final step is, of course, placing the bridge.
An implanted bridge provides several benefits over a traditional bridge. Implants prevent bone degradation and allow you to have replacements without cutting down existing teeth.
