What is a Dental Implant Supported Bridge?

Dental Implant Supported Bridge

A dental implant supported bridge is a type of dental bridge that is supported by dental implants rather than natural teeth. A dental implant is a small titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth.

A dental implant-supported bridge is used when a patient is missing multiple teeth in a row, and traditional dental bridges cannot be used due to lack of support from adjacent teeth. In this procedure, two or more dental implants are placed into the jawbone, and a custom-made dental bridge is attached to the implants.

Is a dental implant supported bridge the best solution for your needs?

Two key components make up a dental implant supported bridge. Each plays an integral role to achieve a beautiful and functional restoration. Two or more dental implants are surgically placed in the jawbone for a dental implant supported bridge. These implants integrate with the jaw, preventing bone loss and creating a lasting foundation.

The artificial teeth or the “bridge” are made in the dental laboratory to perfectly fit the arch of your jaw. The entire bridge prosthetic will be permanently attached to the dental implants. This can restore not only the appearance of your smile but also its function. The bite force will be similar to natural teeth, ensuring comfort and long-term stability.

The system is also referred to as dental implant crowns & bridges. It’s a suitable restoration if you have lost several teeth in a row and want a comfortable and more permanent solution when compared to a denture.

Materials Used for Dental Implant Crowns & Bridges

The materials that we use for dental implant crowns & bridges are selected for their biocompatibility and durability. The implant posts used for dental implant crowns & bridges are made from surgical titanium. This material integrates with the jawbone, as the tissue heals around the implant. It’s biocompatible with an exceedingly low risk of tissue reaction. Titanium won’t corrode, so your dental implant crowns & bridges could last for a lifetime with regular maintenance.

The visible part of dental implant crowns & bridges can be made from a variety of materials. Porcelain, specialized ceramics, zirconium, and composites can all be considered. Porcelain is a reliable material for dental implant crowns & bridges, and is often used for front teeth since it can closely replicate the look of natural tooth enamel. For posterior teeth like molars, zirconium is a good choice, because it has the strength to resist biting and chewing forces.
