Multiple Tooth Dental Implants Bridge
Some patients choose to opt for an implant bridge, which means not every tooth will be replaced by the implants. A bridge needs to have one or more implants placed to the side to support the bridge. There can be multiple teeth replaced with a dental implant supported bridge. The benefit of a dental implant supported bridge is that it costs less and provides an aesthetically pleasing smile.
A dentist will need to evaluate your oral health situation to determine if you are an eligible patient for a dental implant bridge. A bridge can be done in the anterior of the mouth where the biting force is not as heavy. Ideally, the best place for a dental bridge is the lower jaw where the biting force on the bridge is significantly reduced.
