Fixed Implant Bridges

Fixed Implant Bridges Kingston, PA

Each tooth is essential, so if one or more of your teeth are missing, it can significantly impact the function, health, and aesthetics of your smile. Here at Brand Dental, we offer the best solutions to replace your missing teeth in the form of fixed implant bridges and traditional bridges. These treatments can replace anywhere from a single tooth to an entire arch of missing teeth. Learn more about our dental bridge options below and schedule an appointment at our Kingston, PA office to determine which teeth replacement solution is best for you.

    Dental Bridge Treatment Options

    Replacing missing teeth is easy at Brand Dental. We begin by taking digital X-rays and a three-dimensional image called a cone beam CT scan to determine if you would be a candidate for a fixed implant bridge. Your jaw bone must be strong and healthy to support a fixed implant bridge—otherwise, the alternative would be a traditional bridge.

    Fixed Implant Bridge

    From surgically placing the dental implants into the jaw to designing a custom porcelain bridge, we will help you understand and be comfortable with the process every step of the way. Our dentists can handle all the phases of your treatment to create a long-term and secure replacement for your missing teeth.

    Traditional Bridge

    If you’re looking to restore your missing teeth in a minimally invasive way, Brand Dental can offer traditional bridge options as well. Although less secure than a fixed implant bridge, a traditional bridge is an excellent option if your jaw bone health cannot support dental implants or if you’re looking for a more budget-friendly option.

    What Is A Fixed Implant Bridge?

    A fixed implant bridge consists of surgically placed dental implants and a custom unit of porcelain crowns to recreate a functional set-of teeth. This particular procedure involves several months of healing and dental visits, but it is the best long-term treatment option for missing teeth currently available in dentistry.

    What Is A Traditional Bridge?

    A traditional bridge consists of a centerpiece called a Pontic and two adjacent porcelain crowns on either side. When placing a traditional bridge, the two teeth on either side of the missing teeth are reshaped to support the crowns. To get a traditional bridge usually takes two dental appointments.

    What to Expect

    Since your new bridge is held securely by dental implants, you will be able to bite and chew as normal once again. Replacing the missing teeth with a fixed implant bridge will also prevent future bone recession and tooth loss. Although fixed bridges are a lengthier procedure, you can expect a fully functional set of teeth for years to come.
