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

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
And unlike conventional bridges, implants don’t require that the surrounding teeth be altered to create an anchor.
