Dental Implant Bridges
Bridge Wearers & Dental Implants
Conventional bridges can address the problems caused by missing teeth, due to the fact that bridges are intended to restore the function and structure of the missing teeth.
Bridges have disadvantages in that they are short-lasting and the dentist needs to prepare (damage) the adjacent teeth in order that it can be placed. Fortunately dental implant treatment can provide a solution because implants can provide a stable and long lasting foundation for a bridge. The main disadvantage of preparing (damaging) the adjacent teeth; this is addressed by this type of bridge connecting only the teeth that are missing.
Dental Implants provide Bridge Stabilisation
Problems resulting from conventional porcelain / ceramic bridges can be resolved; to ensure that wearers do not need to replace the bridge after only 8-9 years and from the dentist having to prepare / damage the adjacent teeth (that could well be in an excellent condition with a good prognosis).
Implants secure porcelain / ceramic bridges in place and, if looked after properly with good hygiene, can last 20 years.
