An implant-retained bridge is similar to a traditional fixed bridge except the bridge is held in place by an implant and not attached to adjacent teeth.

When do you use an implant-retained bridge?

An implant-supported bridge is recommended for patients who are missing 2 or more teeth in a row.

Using an implant-retained bridge spreads the pressure created along all teeth connected to the bridge and not on one implant or one tooth.

This type of bridge also helps when there may not be enough jawbone in a particular area to support an implant. The dentist can place the implants on either side and place the bridge on top of the space with the smaller amount of jawbone.

What are implant-retained bridges made of?

The implants are small titanium screws. An abutment made of gold, titanium or porcelain is attached to the implant. The crown is placed over the abutment.

What are the benefits of implant-retained bridges?

  • Restore the roots and crowns of missing teeth
  • Ensure stability without placing pressure on the surrounding tooth structures
  • The implant maintains the optimal level of tooth and gum tissue
