Implant Bridge at Diggers Rest, Caroline Springs, Hillside, Taylors Lake and Sydenham

An implant bridge is a dental solution that can permanently replace a series of missing teeth. It is ideal when only a few teeth are missing or need to be extracted because the bridge can be supported on dental implants without interfering with the surrounding teeth to use as abutment teeth. As a Master Clinician in Implantology, our team of skilled professionals are ready to help determine if an implant bridge is right for you.

Implant Bridge vs Traditional Bridge

Implant Bridge vs Traditional Bridge

A traditional bridge is a prosthesis used to replace one or more missing teeth if the missing teeth are next to each other. There are a few different styles and the one used will depend on your current situation. In general, a bridge is made with porcelain teeth replacements and then a crown on each end that will be attached to your existing teeth. These end teeth are called abutment teeth and are used to support a traditional bridge or a cantilever bridge.

An implant bridge is one that is secured onto dental implants, which are titanium screws placed into the jaw to act as a missing tooth root. As the bone heals, it bonds with the implant, securing it for the dental bridge. This method of replacement means there is no need to alter the surrounding teeth and is considered a more permanent solution to replace a series of missing teeth.

Why Use an Implant Bridge?

There are a few reasons why patients choose an implant bridge over a traditional bridge. When teeth are missing, so are their roots, which can cause the jawbone to deteriorate. This can cause your other teeth to move out of place and change your facial structure as the bone shrinks. Dental implants, the posts that are placed into the jawbone, replace the missing tooth root, which can ward off jawbone deterioration.

Implant bridges are also ideal to replace missing teeth for patients who are looking for a long-term solution to replace their teeth and prefer something more permanent than a traditional bridge. The following is a summary of the benefits of an implant bridge:

Prevent surrounding teeth from moving out of place
Maintain jawbone and facial structure
May be more cost-effective than using an implant for each missing tooth
Comfortable as it can act and feel more like your own teeth
More comfortable than dentures; some patients prefer a dental bridge over removing and replacing all of their teeth with traditional dentures

Can I Get an Implant Bridge?

Can I Get an Implant Bridge?

An implant bridge may be an ideal solution if you have a few, consecutive teeth that are missing. If you already have a traditional bridge but want a more permanent solution, you may be able to upgrade to an implant bridge. However, this solution may not be ideal for everyone.

For example, interested patients must have enough bone density to support the implants. In addition, if you have only one tooth missing or if the surrounding teeth already need crowns, then porcelain or a traditional bridge may be more cost-effective.
