Implant Supported Crowns and Bridges
Whether a patient is missing a single tooth or multiple teeth, dental implant(s) should be consider as the first treatment option. Traditional, tooth-supported dental bridges only last five to seven years, and with proper care often more than 10 years, but at some point they may need to be replaced. While dental implants may need periodic adjustments, they can last a lifetime when properly placed and cared for over time.
Once the implants are well established and bonded to the bone, the final crowns and bridges are fabricated and are cemented onto the implants. This is similar to traditional crowns and bridges that are cemented onto natural teeth. The final implant crowns and bridges will feel and look just like your natural teeth!
