We can use Dental Implants to replace one or several adjacent missing teeth. Larger gaps created by two, three or more missing teeth do not necessarily need an Implant per tooth. We can fit three or four teeth on a bridge supported by two Dental Implants. The exact number of Dental Implants required will depend on the results of your consultation with our Implant surgeon.
Implant-supported bridge looks and functions just like natural teeth. With no need for removal or cleaning, there’s no risk of damaging adjacent healthy teeth.
Benefits of Implant Bridges
The benefits of having Dental Implants include:
1) Replace missing gaps & loose dentures –
Dental implants are a permanent solution to replace missing teeth and loose dentures, which look, function and feel like natural teeth.
2) Improve the appearance of your smile –
Your smile is a key defining feature, and nobody wants to feel self-conscious or embarrassed about theirs if they have a missing tooth. Dental implants look and feel like real teeth allowing you to smile with confidence.
3) Improved comfort & speech –
Unlike dentures which can be ill-fitting and uncomfortable, implants allow you to chew comfortably and speak as normal without worrying that your teeth might fall out.
4) Maintain your bone structure following tooth loss –
A face without teeth can change its shape and start to look aged. Dental Implants help to retain your natural face structure and shape, which can greatly boost your confidence and even make you look younger.
5) Long-lasting –
With proper dental care and hygiene, your dental implants can last for years.
6) Preserve the health of adjacent and surrounding teeth –
Unlike bridges, dental implants are a solution that doesn’t impact the surrounding teeth and they are left intact.
7) No more adhesive –
Dentures need to be taken out, which can be a hassle and very embarrassing. They require messy denture adhesives. Dental implants just fit into the rest of your mouth, so you need not worry about taking them out and using any adhesive.
