Implant Bridges

If you are missing more than one tooth consecutively along the jaw, our Sacramento dentists can use dental implants to create a bridge replicating your original teeth. The implants create a stable foundation for the dental bridge that spans the gap between your natural teeth on either side. Unlike dentures, a bridge is completely stable, as it uses many more implants to create a secure connection to your jaw.

Of course, the additional implants do require additional costs for the procedure. The implant bridge, however, is the best possible replacement for a gap between natural teeth. There are two main reasons why we recommend implant bridges wherever possible:

  1. Implant bridges do not require modifications to your remaining teeth. This keeps as much of your natural bite and smile as possible, which is better for your long-term oral health.
  2. Implant bridges help preserve the underlying jawbone. An ordinary bridge rests above the jaw, supported by surrounding teeth. An implant bridge rests on the jaw, by means of the supporting implants. This keeps the jaw strong by stimulating the bone. It also helps maintain a more youthful appearance.
