When multiple teeth are missing, implant-supported bridges can be a solution. Dental implants replace both the missing natural teeth and some of the roots. Dr. Salim Kapadia Dental Centre in Scarborough offers top-notch multiple-tooth dental implant services at a reasonable cost.
What are the advantages of implant-supported bridges over fixed bridges or removable partial dentures?
Implant-supported bridges offer several advantages compared to other teeth replacement options. Not only do they look and function like natural teeth, but they also replace teeth without relying on support from neighbouring natural teeth. On the other hand, fixed bridges and removable partial dentures depend on support from adjacent teeth.
Moreover, dental implants replace some of your tooth roots, which helps to preserve your jawbone. In contrast, when a fixed bridge or removable partial denture is used, the bone surrounding the previous tooth root can deteriorate. Dental implants help keep the bone healthy and intact by integrating with the jawbone.
