Traditional and Implant-Supported Dental Bridges
Traditional Dental Bridge
A traditional dental bridge uses abutment teeth to secure an artificial tooth (pontic) or teeth (pontics). Preparation of the abutment teeth on either side of the gap requires removing a small amount of enamel. Dental bridges offer an affordable option that not only renews your smile but can prevent your surrounding teeth from shifting.
A bridge supported by dental implants offers unparalleled stability compared to traditional dental restorations. When you lose a tooth, the bone tissue in your jaw begins to deteriorate. An implant acts as a tooth root and provides important stimulation to your jaw, keeping it healthy and strong. An implant-supported dental bridge is the next best thing to natural teeth.
All-on-4® Implants Missing an Entire Arch of Teeth?
If you have widespread tooth decay requiring extractions or are missing an entire arch of teeth and suffer from low bone density in your jaw, All-on-4 implants can help restore your smile without the need for bone grafting. Using four strategically placed implant posts, the All-on-4 method offers the same advantages as an implant-supported bridge. An All-on-4 restoration will look and function just like natural teeth and supports your oral and overall health by stopping further bone loss.
