Fitting an Implant-Supported Bridge

teeth, health , smile, dentistWhether to replace one tooth or several, an implant-supported bridge is probably what your dentist will recommend. Once a patient is deemed to be a good candidate for this form of restorative work, the actual procedure is quite simple and relatively quick. Basically, the steps are as follows:

– Implants are fitted and fixed into the jawbone

– The implants are allowed time to fuse with the bone

– A temporary bridge will probably be fitted while the permanent bridge is constructed

When the bridge is securely fitted the dentist will attach “crowns that match your natural teeth” to the implants. More detailed information can be found at
