Are you missing two or more abutting teeth? If so, you may want to choose Toronto teeth implants.
Implant-supported bridges are a wonderful solution for those who don’t want to deal with the hassle of a denture partial. It’s also a great alternative for those who may not be a good candidate for a traditional dental bridge, which requires that the teeth on either side of the gap to be in robust condition.
Implant-supported bridges are among of the many dental procedures that are offered at our Toronto Implants Dentist clinic.
An implant-supported bridge is used to replace two or more teeth in a row. The prosthetic is anchored in place by two or more implants, which are placed within the jaw.
The empty tooth sockets in the jaw must heal and fill in with bone following the tooth loss or extraction. This creates a robust foundation for the implant, which will then fuse with the surrounding jaw bone. In cases where there’s low bone density, a bone graft may be provided to help promote bone growth.
Once the fusion between the jaw bone and implant is complete — typically after a period of 6 to 9 months — our Toronto Implants Dentist will affix posts or other attachment ports to the implant. These will serve as connection points for the bridge prosthetic, which may also be called a crown.
With proper care, your implant-supported bridge can last a lifetime. Generally, the implant-supported crown requires little special care other than regular brushing.
As with any operation, there is some discomfort immediately following the implantation of the dental implants. But our doctor, a top Toronto teeth implants specialist, utilizes a patient-first approach in all that our doctor does, so you can rest assured knowing that our doctor will work with you to ensure that any discomfort or pain is well-managed.
The Toronto teeth implants dentist offers several different types of tooth implants, including single tooth implants, implant-supported dentures and all on four implants for those who require a full set of teeth.
Our Toronto Implants dentist also offers a number of other general dentistry services, including exams, cleanings, fillings and root canals, crowns and bridges, porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, teeth bonding and more.
