THE BENEFITS OF AN DENTAL IMPLANT BRIDGE
If for whatever reason you happen to lose multiple teeth, one of the best options to consider is getting a dental implant bridge. With this option Dr. Nugent can replace multiple teeth with fewer dental implants all without damaging your natural teeth. The dental implant bridge is independent of your natural teeth. Whereas, old fashioned bridges require the cutting down of natural teeth. Implant supported bridge serves as a replacement for your missing teeth as well as some of your tooth roots. The implant bridge is stable and secure and non-removable. Plus, the dental implants will stimulate and preserve the jaw bone. Dental implant bridges are far superior to the old fashioned options of removable partial dentures or fixed bridges.
The dental implant bridge will make use of the implants that will be anchored into the jaw bone. The dental implant bridge is not dependent on natural teeth for support. On the other hand, traditional bridges require the aggressive cutting down of natural teeth in order to hold the bridge. This is one of the main disadvantages of traditional bridges.
People who choose traditional dentures to replace multiple teeth experience other problems, including slipping and pain as a result of the denture rubbing on the gum tissue. Additionally, a denture does not stimulate the jaw bone in any way as regular teeth and implants do. Stimulating the jaw bone helps maintain bone mass. Another great benefit of implant bridge is that it helps hold everything in place since it is anchored into your mouth. For this reason, you will be able to eat all kinds of food without getting worried that it will slip around in your mouth.
Getting the Implants
Getting a dental implant bridge is a procedure that involves having dental implants placed into your jawbone. After undergoing the procedure, you will need several months (between two to six months) to allow the implants and the bone to heal and bond. During the healing period, you can wear temporary teeth over them. This means that you should not be overly worried about being without teeth. After the healing process is complete, your dental bridge will be completed and you will be able to eat and smile with ease. In addition, keeping your implant bridge clean is also easy as long as you take adequate care. Once the process is finally complete, you will smile more confidently!
