Implant supported bridge

An implant-supported bridge is similar to a regular dental bridge, but itis supported by implants and not by natural teeth. In most cases, when an implant-supported bridge is used, one implant is placed in the jawbone for each missing tooth. Then the crowns are connected to each other to form one piece. An implant-supported bridge is used when more than one tooth is missing.

Sometimes when there are more than 2 teeth missing together and it becomes difficult to give a tooth supported bridge as the support of the adjacent teeth may be less. Dental implants becomes the better option for such type of edentulism.It also may be used when your dentist is concerned about that you might put too much pressure on individual implants that are not connected to each other. For example, clenching or grinding your teeth can put a lot of pressure on individual implants. This can increase the chances that they will loosen from the bone and fail. An implant- supported bridge reduces the pressure on the individual implants in the bone, and spreads it across the entire bridge.
