Implant-Supported Crowns, Bridges and Dentures
Missing teeth and damaged gums can affect your ability to talk and eat, and can harm your self-esteem. Thankfully, restorative dentistry offers options, such as implant-supported crowns, bridges and dentures, that can help you regain function and appearance.
What are Implant-Supported Crowns, Bridges and Dentures?Implant-supported crows, bridges and dentures are all dental services that can help restore stability and appearance to your mouth after permanent teeth have been lost:
Dentures are removable sets of teeth that are used to replace a missing tooth or missing teeth.Crowns
Crowns are a type of cap placed over a damaged or decayed tooth to protect the area and improve appearance.Bridges
A bridge is a fixed dental restoration that is joined to adjacent teeth or a dental implant to replace a missing tooth.Each method can be supported and strengthened by the use of implants.
What Are Implants?Implants are an interface that is used to connect a dental appliance to the bone of the jaw or skull. By interfacing with the bone, any type of dental appliance, such as a replacement tooth or set of dentures, will become more stable.In short, implants act as a tooth root.
What are the Benefits of Implant-Supported Crowns, Bridges and Dentures?The biggest benefit to implant-supported dental devices is that they are more stable than those without an implant. Other benefits include:
- Helping you speak and chew properly
- Restoring the appearance of your smile
- Providing longer-lasting results because of the inherent stability
- Providing a secure fit because dentures, crowns and bridges are all secured to bone
