Dr. Michael Webster here, your trusted Implant Dentist and Owner at Kelowna Dental Centre! Today, I’m excited to discuss implant-supported bridges, a remarkable dental restoration option for individuals with multiple missing teeth. 

An implant-supported bridge utilizes dental implants to provide a strong and reliable foundation for a dental bridge, restoring your smile’s functionality and aesthetics. Let’s explore what implant-supported bridges are, their benefits, and how they can transform your oral health.

What is an Implant-Supported Bridge?

An implant-supported bridge is a restorative procedure designed for individuals with two or more missing teeth. During the implant-supported bridge procedure, I will place dental implants on each side of the bridge. These implants, typically made of titanium, act as artificial tooth roots that are surgically inserted into the jawbone. By integrating with the bone, the implants prevent jawbone loss, ensuring a sturdy foundation for the bridge. The number of titanium posts used will determine the size of the bridge. Unlike traditional bridges that rely on neighbouring natural teeth for support, an implant-supported bridge depends solely on the titanium rods in the jawbone. This approach offers numerous advantages, including improved stability and durability.

The process of placing an implant-supported bridge typically involves two procedures with some recovery time in between. The first step is the implantation of the titanium rods, followed by the placement of abutments. Finally, the crown is attached to the abutments, usually after two weeks. Unlike traditional bridges, implant-supported bridges do not require us to file down the neighboring teeth on either side. This preserves the integrity of the adjacent natural teeth. The stability provided by implant-supported bridges allows individuals to speak, smile, and eat without hindrance.

An individual should have good oral health to be a suitable candidate for an implant-supported bridge. Sufficient jawbone tissue is needed to securely support the titanium rods. If someone has experienced bone loss, a sinus lift or bone graft may be recommended to restore the upper or lower jaw bone mass. Any existing tooth decay or gum disease must also be treated before proceeding with dental implant surgery. It’s important to note that individuals with uncontrolled diabetes may not be eligible for dental implants. We’re happy to discuss alternative options for any individuals who may not qualify for an implant-supported bridge.

Implant-Supported Bridge Cost

Understanding implant-supported bridge costs is critical when considering this dental restoration option. While exact costs vary depending on factors such as the number of implants required and the complexity of the case, it’s essential to consider the long-term benefits and enhanced quality of life that implant-supported bridges offer.
