How Dental Bridges are Placed

There are different types of dental bridges available depending on how many teeth you’re missing and the size of the gap(s). Traditional dental bridges are held in place with dental crowns that are attached to the teeth on either side. A cantilever bridge involves cementing the crown to just one of the surrounding teeth. Finally, there is the implant-supported bridge, a sturdy, stable solution that should last you for life.

Why Choose an Implant-Supported Bridge?

Dental bridges attached to implants are stronger than other bridge options, and much more stable. You will never have to worry about your bridge loosening or falling out. Perhaps most important, implants prevent the jawbone from shrinking, which can unfortunately occur with regular dentures and bridges that do not have a sturdy foundation.

Why You Might Prefer to Go with a Traditional Bridge

Implant-supported dental bridges are more expensive than their traditional counterparts, and they require more steps (including surgery) to have placed. Traditional bridges may be more budget-friendly and practical for your needs.
