Restore your confidence with Implantiem
Dentists have observed that when more than one tooth is missing, bone loss in the jaw can occur and the remaining teeth can change position over time. Bridges positioned with dental implants can prevent these issues from occurring entirely.
What is an implant supported bridge?
A bridge is a non-removable prosthesis that replaces multiple lost teeth. Traditionally, a bridge is placed with metal clips on the adjacent teeth, but the use of implants instead is preferable as the bridge is much more stable and comfortable, and also doesn’t interfere with otherwise healthy teeth.
While the practical purpose of teeth is their most important aspect, teeth also play a huge role in our facial aesthetics. Prosthetics based on Implantiem implants function just like natural teeth, both practically and aesthetically, returning your natural smile. This of course has a very positive impact on your self-confidence, self-esteem and overall mental health – A better life starts with a better smile!
An implant supported bridge not only affects the appearance of your mouth, but also your face in general. The forced exerted through the implants while chewing are the same as those through the roots of natural teeth, and this stimulation helps maintain the overall foundation of the jaw and, therefore, your facial structure.
Alternatives to Implant Supported Bridges
The most common alternative treatment for multiple missing teeth is the fitting of a denture.
Dentures are removable prosthesis which replaces either a full palate (all or most of the teeth) or partial palate (a few teeth or one tooth) that fit with metal clasps that attach onto neighbouring teeth.
The interference these prostheses have with other, sometimes healthy teeth is leading more and more people to opt for dental implants.
Advantages of Implant Supported Bridges
Prosthesis based on dental implants are often more aesthetically pleasing than other treatment options as they help maintain the bone and therefore the overall shape of the face. As they are fixed in the mouth, the also dramatically improve functionality and long-term prognosis.
In the long run, many patients find that prosthesis based on implants are easier to clean and preserve than bridges and dentures, which can damage neighbouring teeth.
Due to the longevity of implants, they can not only help improve one’s quality of life, but they may also prove to be more financially cost effective than other possible treatments.
