Model of implant-supported bridge treating tooth loss.

Traditionally, two missing teeth in a row are replaced using a fixed bridge. We take an impression of your mouth to recreate the portions of your missing teeth visible above the gumline. The bridge is held in place by reshaping your adjacent teeth to bond dental crowns over them. This is a convenient and affordable solution; however, you’ll need to permanently alter healthy teeth to support the bridge.

As an alternative, a dental implant can hold the bridge in place. A titanium implant post is surgically inserted into the jawbone, replacing the root of a tooth to provide unmatched benefits not possible with a traditional bridge.

Three or More Consecutive Missing Teeth

A bridge and crowns can also treat three or more missing teeth in a row. While it is effective, it will only last for a few years before needing to be replaced. Instead of relying on crowns for support, you can enjoy a more permanent solution using a dental implant at either end of the bridge. This gives you a solution that’s proven to last for decades with the right aftercare.
