Implant Supported Bridges – Vero Beach, FL

Strong & Beautiful Multi-Tooth Replacement

If you are missing three, four, or more teeth in a row, it may be difficult for you to enjoy your favorite foods or smile with confidence. While a partial denture or a traditional bridge may both be viable options to fill in the gap, an implant supported bridge in Vero Beach may be an even better solution.

Why Choose Premier Dental for Implant Supported Bridges?

What Is an Implant Supported Bridge?

Model dental bridge restoration

A traditional bridge has two crowns that are placed over existing natural teeth, and an artificial tooth (or teeth) is secured between them. An implant-supported bridge, on the other hand, gains its strength and security from two small titanium posts that your implant dentist in Vero Beach surgically places beneath the gum line. An implant-supported bridge may be able to replace three or more missing teeth in a row.

How Does the Process Work?

If, after an in-depth consultation, we determine that you are a good candidate for dental implants in Vero Beach, we will plan your placement surgery. Once the implants are in place, it may take several weeks — or perhaps a couple of months — for your bone to heal. Your jawbone will fuse to the implants, creating an incredibly strong base of support for your new teeth.

Eventually, we will design a beautiful prosthesis to go on top of your implants. Our prosthodontists have an intimate understanding of the oral structures and the factors that go into creating a functional bite. Therefore, you can expect your new teeth to be both beautiful and comfortable.

How Should You Care for Your Implant Supported Bridge?

Caring for an implant-supported bridge doesn’t require any complicated or time-consuming steps. You should always brush your teeth twice a day and floss at least once. When you floss, you may need to use a special tool to floss underneath the artificial teeth that are between the implants. You should also avoid tobacco use and visit us every six months for a checkup.

How Long Can You Expect Your Implant Supported Bridge to Last?

Dental implants have the potential to last for 30 years or longer. However, the restoration on top of the implants may have a shorter lifespan; it may need to be replaced after 10 – 15 years or so.
