Replacing Front Teeth With An Implant Bridge

Posted by Armitage Dental on Oct 25 2023, 05:26 AM

Are you tired of hiding your smile or feeling self-conscious about missing front teeth? Well, worry no more because modern dentistry has a fantastic solution for you. An implant bridge is a revolutionary dental procedure that can restore not only your confidence but also the natural look and function of your beautiful smile.

An implant bridge is a dental restoration that replaces multiple adjacent missing teeth with the help of dental implants. It consists of two or more artificial teeth attached to implants that are surgically placed into the jawbone.

The Process of Getting an Implant Bridge

The process of getting an implant bridge is a multi-step journey that ultimately leads to a beautiful and functional smile. It all begins with a thorough examination and consultation with your dentist or oral surgeon. They will assess your dental health, take X-rays, and discuss the best treatment options for you. Once the decision is made to proceed with an implant bridge, the next step involves preparing the area where the implants will be placed. This may involve extracting any remaining teeth in the affected area and ensuring that there is enough bone density to support the implants.

After this preparation phase, titanium posts are surgically implanted into the jawbone. These act as artificial roots for your new teeth. Over time, these posts fuse with the bone through a process called osseointegration. Once osseointegration has taken place (typically several months), abutments are attached to each post. These abutments serve as connectors between the implant posts and your replacement teeth. Custom-made crowns or bridges are created to match your natural teeth in color, shape, and size. These prosthetic teeth are then securely attached to the abutments.

Throughout this process, regular check-ups with your dental professional are essential for monitoring healing progress and ensuring optimal results.

Advantages of Implant Bridges

  • Implant bridges offer several advantages over other tooth replacement options. They are a permanent solution that is designed to last for many years with proper care. Unlike dentures or removable bridges, implant bridges are securely anchored in place using dental implants, providing stability and preventing movement or slippage.
  • Another advantage of implant bridges is that they closely resemble natural teeth in both appearance and function. The bridge is custom-made to match the color and shape of your existing teeth so that it blends seamlessly with your smile. Additionally, because the bridge is supported by implants instead of neighboring teeth, there is no need for any preparation or alteration of healthy teeth.
  • Implant bridges also help maintain the health and integrity of the surrounding bone structure. When a tooth is lost, the underlying jawbone can start to deteriorate due to lack of stimulation. However, dental implants mimic natural tooth roots by integrating into the jawbone through a process called osseointegration. This stimulates bone growth and prevents further bone loss.
  • Implant bridges provide superior chewing efficiency compared to traditional dentures or removable bridges since they do not shift or move while eating. This allows individuals with implant-supported bridges to enjoy their favorite foods without restrictions.
