Implant Bridge at Melbourne
We all want a beautiful smile and functionable teeth, but missing teeth can interfere with this. An implant bridge is a restorative dental solution that can permanently replace a series of missing teeth and increase your confidence to smile and eat without worry.
What is an Implant Bridge?
Dental implants are posts that have been inserted into the jaw with a crown secured on it to replace a tooth. For those with a row of missing teeth, we can create an implant bridge that takes advantage of the permanence of implant technology. The new bridge will look, feel and function like your own teeth as it is secured onto dental implants to hold it in place without shifting or need for removal.

Benefits of an Implant Bridge
Implants are used to replace the tooth root, which prevents jawbone deterioration that takes place when a tooth is missing. Jawbone deterioration can quickly age your face as the shrinking bone causes a sunken or sallow look. But replacing the tooth and the tooth root causes a healing reaction within your jawbone that stimulates bone growth as it works to bond with the implant. This solution is a preferred treatment for patients who want a hassle-free solution for missing teeth. The following are benefits of an implant bridge that our patients enjoy:
They look, feel and function as your natural, healthy teeth
Implant bridges are a long-term solution for missing teeth that will maintain jawbone structure
They protect the integrity of surrounding teeth
An implant bridge is more cost effective than replacing each individual tooth with a single implant
The bridge is often a more comfortable and natural feeling solution over dentures
Your smile and confidence will be restored as you can safely smile, speak and eat without worry
How Does it Work?
An implant bridge is for patients who have a series of consecutive missing teeth. To begin the process, we will secure dental implants into strategic parts of the jaw, depending on the bridge size and shape. Some patients may leave with a temporary bridge while waiting for the implants to heal. We then set an appointment where you will return so we can permanently place the bridge onto the implants.
Who is a Candidate?
Those with multiple, consecutive missing teeth are candidates for an implant bridge. In addition, anyone who wears dentures or a traditional bridge may be able to replace their current dental prosthetic with an implant bridge.
There are some situations that may require pretreatment or may not qualify for this procedure. When you come in for an examination, our skilled dentists will evaluate your gums and jaw to see if they are healthy enough for an implant bridge. If you have gum disease or weak bone, we can often solve these problems with treatment so you can move forward with a bridge. Once your entire treatment is complete, you will have a restored smile and healthier teeth that can last a lifetime.
