Are You a Candidate for an Implant Supported Bridge?
Most people are qualified to have a single dental implant at Karmazin Dental. An implant-supported bridge usually requires a second implant, we will need to make sure that your jaw is strong enough and that there is adequate bone density. We will conduct an examination and take digital X-rays before we consider the procedure.
Also, you must understand the implant supported bridge will need extraordinary oral hygiene. An implant supported bridge is a permanent appliance that must be cleaned just like your natural teeth. Without the attachments to the two neighboring teeth, you can floss every day, and the artificial crowns will need to be brushed as well. Regular checkups every six months with Karmazin Dental are strongly encouraged as well.
Benefits of Implant Supported Bridges
Some of the benefits of replacing missing teeth with an implant supported bridges include:
- No hassle- You will not experience any disruptions in the appearance of your healthy smile or how you care for your teeth daily. You can brush and floss as usual, eat your favorite foods, and smile and talk with complete confidence.
- Improved oral health- With the natural like stimulation from the implant post, you can count on your dental implants to help you maintain natural gum tissue volume and jawbone density, which means your smile will be healthy and functional for years to come.
- Long lasting- After placement, your implant supported bridge has the potential to last a lifetime. This is substantially longer than traditional bridges and dentures, which need to be replaced every 5 to 10 years.
An implant supported bridge leaves your adjoining teeth in their natural condition. The two neighboring teeth do not need to undergo any prep to support the artificial crowns. The dental implants, acting as artificial roots, will hold your bridge securely so that it feels and functions just like your natural teeth. This artificial tooth root stimulates the jaw to maintain density and prevent jawbone atrophy.

The Implant Supported Bridge Procedure
An implant-supported bridge will require several steps of treatment, which might take about six to nine months. After the initial evaluation at Karmazin Dental has confirmed the necessary bone density, we will surgically place the dental implants into the jawbone of tooth loss. After this surgery, the bone tissues need sufficient time to grow and fuse with the implants in a process called osseointegration.
After the osseointegration is completed, the second step will be to attach abutments, or extensions, to the implants. After this step of treatment, the gums will again need about two weeks to heal.
The final stage of implant supported bridge restoration is the actual placement of the custom designed bridge to these implant extensions. A special dental compound will be used to bond the dental bridge, with the artificial crowns, to the abutment posts. This secures your new implant supported bridge so that it becomes a natural part of your smile.
With continued preventative oral hygiene care at-home and scheduling your regular dental checkups every six months with Karmazin Dental, your implant supported bridge will last for decades, and you can smile and eat all the foods you enjoy. Your natural smile will be restored, you will have no stability issues with biting, chewing, and speaking, and the artificial root maintains the health of the jawbone so you will not experience any sagging with your facial structure.
