If you're missing several teeth, we offer implant-supported bridges to replace them. Replacing natural teeth with our implants provides you the structure and stability that your natural teeth and roots provide. Unlike other teeth replacement options, our implant-supported bridges replace your missing teeth without the help of your adjacent natural teeth. Other replacement options, like partial dentures and fixed bridges, rely on the support of your remaining natural teeth, but implant-supported bridges are reliable on their own.
Another benefit to our implant-supported bridges is that they'll replace some of your tooth roots, allowing to better preserve the bone in your jaw. With a fixed bridge or removable partial denture, that bone may begin to deterioriate, which may change the structure of your facial features. Thankfully, with the help of dental implants, the structure will be reinforced in multiple ways so you won't be left with a visible defect, like a collapsed or sunken smile.
