Bridge implants, otherwise known as implant-supported bridges are very much similar to traditional bridges. The only difference is that they are supported by implants and not by our natural teeth. The implant maybe made of Titanium and would be surgically placed in the jawbone. Implant-supported bridges are used when more than one tooth is missing. In cases of less bone density, the supporting bone structure can be improved in terms of density by using bone grafting.
Your teeth play an important role in your ability to speak, chew, and smile, so if you have experienced tooth loss, we encourage you to contact NuSmile Dental. Depending on your needs, Dr. Lawrence Wu may recommend a dental bridge to span areas of tooth loss.
