What Is an Implant-Supported Bridge?

A traditional dental bridge features a row of prosthetic teeth that is held in place by attaching dental crowns to your adjacent teeth. Although it is an effective treatment, it comes with certain disadvantages. You will need to permanently alter healthy teeth, and it needs to be replaced about every 5 years.

Dental implants resolve the common complaints of the traditional method. Instead of dental crowns holding the appliance in place, an average of one or two implant posts anchors it to your jawbone.

How Does It Work?

Dental implant posts are surgically placed into your jawbone. They serve as tooth roots to stimulate new bone growth. This allows your jaw to fuse to the posts to create a secure foundation for the bridge. The bridge features custom-made prosthetics designed to meet your exact needs to blend in seamlessly when you smile.

What Are the Benefits?

The implant posts allow the bridge to offer exceptional benefits that are not possible with the traditional method, such as:

  • Over a 95% success rate.
  • Looks and feels natural.
  • Does not alter your remaining teeth.
  • Preserves your bone density.
  • Improves your oral health.
  • Potential to last for several decades.

What Are the Indicators?

After performing an initial consultation, your implant dentist in Longview, TX creates a customized treatment plan. To complete your smile, the first phase involves surgically placing one or two implant posts into your jawbone. After the bone has healed, abutments are attached to the posts, which act as connector pieces. Impressions are taken to design your bridge. Once it is ready, it is set on to the abutments.

How Do I Care for an Implant-Supported Bridge?

To protect the success of your new smile, it is best to care for your bridge. In addition to brushing and flossing twice a day, clean the spaces between the bridge and your gums well. Do not forget to visit your dentist twice a year for a cleaning and checkup.

How Long Do They Last?

With the right care, your implant posts should last for a lifetime. The bridge will suffer from daily wear and tear. As a result, it may need to be replaced about every 10 years.
