Whether you have a missing tooth from trauma, old age, poor dental health or other reasons, it can be stressful figuring out what the next step should be. At Sugarloaf Signature Dentistry, we can use fixed implant bridges to restore your smile, protect your oral health, and improve your quality of life.
To find out if you are a candidate for a fixed implant bridge, call our dental team today and schedule a consultation.
A fixed implant bridge may be necessary in the following circumstances:
The loss of multiple adjacent teeth: When you’ve lost several teeth in a row, an implant bridge can fill the gap effectively.
Insufficient tooth structure: If neighboring teeth aren’t healthy enough to support a traditional bridge, implants can stand alone without relying on adjacent teeth.
A desire for a permanent solution: For those seeking a non-removable option, implant bridges offer a fixed, long-term solution.
Jawbone preservation: Individuals with bone loss who want to maintain facial structure may benefit from the jawbone stimulation provided by implants.
Improved oral health: When a partial denture isn’t desirable due to comfort or convenience, an implant bridge can be a superior alternative to improving oral health.
How Does a Fixed Implant Bridge Work?
You will start out with a consultation with our dental team to evaluate your oral health, smile situation, and goals. The fixed implant bridge uses dental implants as a base to support a series of false teeth.
We’ll take some scans and impressions so we can plan exactly what your bridge will look like and how it will fit. Then we will insert an implant or two into your jawbone. Once the implant is ready, we’ll place your customized bridge on top of the implant.
In the end, you will have a completely restored smile that you can feel comfortable in. Make sure to follow your dentist’s instructions for maintenance and care, and you should have a strong smile for years to come.
Benefits of a Fixed Implant Bridge
If you need to replace multiple teeth in a row, you don’t need to settle for the cheapest option. We can give you a solution that comes with multiple advantages:
Stability and durability: This dental service gives the strength and longevity of dental implants. With a dental implant as the foundation for your bridge, your new teeth will be sturdy and long-lasting. You’ll be able to keep your new teeth for 10–20 years!
Natural appearance: Fixed implant bridges are customized to match the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth to give you a seamless smile. Your new fixed dental bridge will blend in naturally with the rest of your teeth.
Jawbone preservation: When you lose a tooth, your jawbone is no longer receiving constant stimulation, which can cause it to start to decay. When your jawbone is weakened, it looks shriveled. Fixed implant bridges solve this problem by stimulating the jawbone to keep it healthy and allow you to look younger for longer.
Lower Risk of Shifting Teeth: When you have a missing tooth, your other teeth may try to fill the gap, causing misalignment. A fixed dental bridge will prevent teeth from moving by filling the gap.
Improved Oral Health: A missing tooth significantly impacts your oral health because bacteria can easily grow in the site of the missing tooth. Fixed implant bridges seal the site from bacteria, saving your oral health.
Long-lasting Solution: You do not have to worry about this dental service breaking down on you after a couple of months. It is quite the opposite, with proper care and maintenance this treatment will last numerous years, giving you a long-term solution.
Hi-Tech: When treatment needs to be precise and customized like implant bridges do, it is important to have the latest technology available. Sugarloaf Signature Dentistry has excellent technology that fulfills and exceeds your every smile need.
