Implant Bridges : Bridge to Your Happiness

Cross the river of dental insecurities and achieve your best smile with Supercare’s implant bridges

If several of your teeth are missing, it can lead to significant dental insecurity, not to mention increase the risks of infection, gum disease, and even cancer.  Implant bridges are put in to replace these missing teeth and restore oral function and aesthetics. 

Understanding the importance of a full, confident and healthy smile, we restore missing teeth through implant-supported bridges. By providing quality care and top-notch treatment, we aim to empower our patients to eat, live, and smile with unadulterated joy.

What are implant-supported bridges?

Implant-supported bridges offer a cutting-edge dental restoration option in the field of dental restorations, a sophisticated solution for those facing the challenges of one or more missing teeth. Unlike conventional bridges, which typically rely on neighbouring natural teeth for support, implant-supported bridges focus on the strategic placement of dental implants within the jawbone, effectively mimicking the function of natural tooth roots. 

Implant bridges not only aesthetically restore your smile but also have durability. These dental implants serve as robust, reliable anchors for the bridge, introducing a level of stability and longevity that traditional bridges simply cannot match. 

Our dental professionals will evaluate your individual case to determine whether you require implant bridge treatment so that you can regain your oral health and quality of life as soon as possible.

Benefits of an implant bridge

Implant bridges offer a range of compelling benefits. First and foremost, they excel in enhancing your facial and oral aesthetics by seamlessly blending with your natural teeth. They provide you with a beautiful and seemingly natural smile.

Beyond appearance, implant bridges also excel in functionality, restoring your ability to bite, chew, and speak comfortably, mirroring the performance of your natural teeth. What sets them apart in terms of longevity is their remarkable durability, often lasting a lifetime with proper care.

Moreover, implant supported bridges contribute to jawbone protection by stimulating it, preventing bone loss, and maintaining your facial structure over the long term. Unlike traditional bridges that may require altering healthy adjacent teeth for support, implant bridges do not inflict any damage on surrounding teeth and preserve your overall dental health.

Procedures of implant bridges

While it may seem scary or lengthy, dental implant bridging is a simple procedure that covers a few weeks to months. Here’s how the dental implant bridging procedure goes at Supercare: 

Step 1 - Consultation :

Our experienced dental team will assess your oral health and determine if you are a suitable candidate for implant bridges.

Step 2 - Implant Placement :

If you are eligible, dental implants will be surgically placed into your jawbone by a skilled oral surgeon or implant dentist. The procedure may require anaesthesia or other analgesics like penthrox.

Step 3 - Healing Period :

A healing period of several months will be given to allow the implants to integrate with your jawbone through a remarkable process called osseointegration.

Step 4 - Bridge Fabrication :

Once the implants are fully integrated, impressions of your mouth will be taken to design a custom bridge that perfectly fits your smile.

Step 5 - Bridge Placement:

The final step will involve securely attaching the bridge to the implanted posts, completing your smile transformation.

Types of dental implant bridges

There are several types of dental implant bridges for you to choose from:

  1. Traditional Implant Bridge: This type of implant bridge consists of one or more replacement teeth supported by two or more dental implants. It is ideal for patients missing multiple teeth in a row.
  2. Cantilever Implant Bridge: A cantilever bridge is used when there are healthy teeth on only one side of the gap. It is anchored by a single implant, making it a suitable choice for certain situations.
  3. Implant-Supported Full Arch Bridge: This comprehensive solution is ideal for patients missing an entire arch of teeth. It provides stability and aesthetics for a complete smile makeover.
  4. Zirconia Implant Bridge: Zirconia bridges are known for their strength and natural appearance. They are an excellent choice for those seeking highly esthetic results.

What does it feel like to get an implant bridge?

The initial step before implant placement is a consultation with the patient. And then an oral scan will be done using the best technology to check what sort of implant is required.

Dental implants are required before placing an implant bridge in the mouth. These are inserted into the jawbone of the patient. By serving as the tooth’s root, the implants will establish a sturdy foundation upon which the bridge can be supported. 

Implants can now be placed in the mouth of the patient pretty easily. A temporary bridge is frequently implanted in the mouth before the patient leaves the office.

Knowing whether or not to get an implant bridge

It is likely that you will require a dental bridge or an implant if you need to replace a tooth. Important factors to think about include the cost, the time required for restoration, and the position of your new tooth. Both techniques can help you regain your grin and self-assurance. To decide what is best for you, do some research and consult a dental expert.

Implant bridges FAQs

Recovery after a dental bridge procedure typically takes a few days to a week. Discomfort and swelling are common initially, but you can usually return to regular activities within a day or two.

A well-maintained dental bridge can last 10-15 years or even longer. The lifespan depends on factors like oral hygiene, diet, and quality of the materials used in the bridge.

To care for your dental bridge, maintain good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly, including the bridge area. Visit your dentist for check-ups and cleanings, and avoid biting down on very hard or sticky foods to prevent damage.

There is not such a thing as the ideal age for a dental bridge, its requirement depends on your individual circumstances. Dental bridges are typically recommended for adults who have lost one or more teeth due to injury, decay, or other dental issues, regardless of age.

Dental bridges can replace one or more missing teeth. The number of teeth on a bridge can vary, with bridges designed to replace a single tooth (a crown supported by two adjacent teeth or implants) or multiple teeth (spanning a gap with multiple pontics supported by dental implants or natural teeth).

Pain or discomfort during a dental bridge procedure is typically managed with local anaesthesia, so you should not feel pain during the process. After the procedure, some people may experience mild discomfort or sensitivity, which can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medications and should subside within a few days.

Dental bridges are designed to look and feel as close to real teeth as possible. While they may not have the exact sensation of natural teeth, they provide functional and aesthetic benefits that make them a comfortable and lifelike replacement for missing teeth.
