Bridges are laboratory-made devices crafted from porcelain and gold alloys. They are used to fill spaces left by extracted or missing teeth. Teeth adjacent to a space are used to support additional "false" teeth.
This is a two-visit procedure which can make a great improvement to the look and feel of your mouth.
Implant - secured bridges
If you are missing several teeth or your remaining teeth aren’t strong enough to support the additional loading that a bridge demands, then the placement of one or more dental implants might be ideal for you.
Dental implants can provide extra support for a bridge, allowing us to restore more complex and demanding cases.
If you would like to find out more, please book an appointment with us and we will be only too happy to explain this treatment in further detail.
What are the benefits of securing a bridge on dental implants?
It is often the most conservative way of supporting a bridge because there is no need to prepare adjacent natural teeth and the longterm success rates are excellent.
