A Durable Solution
For Tooth Loss
A dental bridge restores gaps in your smile where a tooth is missing and aims to enhance the appearance of your smile, as well as improve your oral and general health. A bridge is temporary and is generally placed on top of a small piece of porcelain material that’s supported by one or more of your natural teeth.
Here at Triad Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer a more secure alternative to a traditional bridge using dental implants. Our fixed bridges allow you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence again without having to worry about bone loss, emerging teeth, or premature wrinkling.
Why You Should
Choose an Implant Bridge
A dental implant bridge offers a longer-lasting solution for tooth loss that blends seamlessly with your smile. As each implant naturally bonds with your jawbone, it acts as a tooth root for your final restoration, providing improved stability and functionality.
Additional benefits you’ll receive from a dental implant bridge compared to a traditional, temporary bridge, include:
- You’ll feel more confident than ever before
- They look just like your natural teeth
- You can live without restriction and eat all your favorite foods
- They improve your ability to simply speak
- They help regenerate lost jawbone
- You can live with a fully restored smile for years to come
Dental Implant Bridge
Once you’ve decided to move forward with the dental implant bridge treatment after your consultation, we’ll first place the dental implants in the areas where your teeth are missing. Over a couple of months, the implant will integrate with your jawbone through a process called osseointegration to provide a strong, sturdy base for your crowns.
After your implants have successfully bonded with your jaw, we can place your bridge on top of the abutment piece that secures your crowns to the implant. Then, you’ll be able to leave with a beautiful new smile after placement.
Frequently Asked Questions
About An Implant Bridge
How much do implant bridges cost?
A dental implant bridge will cost more than a temporary bridge, however, because a dental implant is built to last a lifetime, the overall cost of an implant bridge is well worth the investment.
Are dental bridges covered by insurance?
Are dental implant bridges safe?
100%. A dental implant is made of titanium, a biocompatible material, which means it bonds naturally with your own bone. Your implant bridge will look and feel just like your natural teeth– in fact, many people won’t even notice a difference.
What’s the difference between a temporary and permanent dental bridge?
The main difference between a temporary and permanent dental bridge is their lifespan. A traditional bridge lasts between five and 15 years, whereas, a permanent implant bridge can last a lifetime.
A dental implant bridge is also secured to your jawbone, meaning it won’t ever become loose or slide around when you eat or speak.
