If you are missing multiple teeth, our dentists may recommend replacing them with a dental bridge. Dental bridges are used to literally bridge the gap between healthy teeth. Traditional dental bridges use those healthy teeth as anchors to the restoration; however, Dr. Jason Campbell, Dr. Rick Farnsworth and Dr. Mitchell Grimmer also provide implant-supported bridges at Pro Solutions Dental Group.
Implant-supported bridges serve the same function as traditional bridges; that is, they replace multiple consecutive missing teeth. The main difference is that implant bridges don’t use neighboring teeth to support the new restoration. Instead, they use at least two dental implants, giving you secure and long-lasting results.
The process of receiving an implant bridge begins with an in-depth consultation with one of our dentists. We will discuss your current health and perform a careful examination of your mouth to determine if implants are a viable option for you. If they are, we will proceed with placing two or more implants, depending on your individual needs. We utilize titanium for the abutments because its biologically safe nature protects your oral health, and it can fuse to the natural tissue of the jawbones to form an anchor that feels as supportive as a natural tooth root. You will also be given a temporary bridge to use while your implants heal.
When your implants have fully integrated with your jaw bone, we will place your permanent bridge. This is created at a professional dental lab, based on impressions of your mouth and other information. The bridge is designed to fit perfectly with your bite and provide years of sturdy, comfortable use.
