Implant-supported bridge

Implant-Supported Bridges

Living with missing teeth can be painful, frustrating, and embarrassing. It can even affect your ability to speak clearly and chew properly.

Fortunately, Drs. Charles and Patrick Casey at Smile Montreal, QC, can repair gaps in your smile with implant-supported bridges. 

Find out how we can restore the appearance and function of your teeth... 

What Is an Implant-Supported Bridge?

Similar to traditional bridges and dentures, implant bridges replace missing teeth. While conventional bridges are supported by dental crowns on the adjacent teeth, implant-supported bridges attach to small titanium posts that are surgically placed in the jaw. For this reason, dental implants offer a more permanent, stable solution.

Let's Take a Closer Look...

The Advantages of Implant-Supported Bridges

Most patients are surprised to learn that dental implant placement is fairly simple and comfortable thanks to modern developments in dentistry. Implant-supported bridges offer several advantages when compared to regular bridges and dentures, including:

Maximum Stability

Once the treatment site fully heals, the implants will be fused to the jaw, providing maximum stability and security for your restoration.

Impressive Durability

Dental implants are one of the most durable solutions for missing teeth. With proper care, an implant-supported bridge should last over two decades, while traditional bridges will need to be replaced every five to 10 years. 

Better Oral Health

Unlike traditional bridges, these restorations do not require any alternations to your natural teeth. Furthermore, dental implants act as an artificial tooth root, which stimulates the jaw and prevents bone degeneration. 

Natural-Looking Results

We craft all our restorations with the highest quality of materials so your bridge will look virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

Best dentist I've ever been to easy. I'm an extremely rough patient who is petrified of needles and has panic attacks. Dr. Casey AND HIS STAFF (can't stress this enough, many reviews speak of Dr. Casey but his staff is equally unbelievable and exceptional) have never judged me and have always been nothing but understanding.

How an Implant-Supported Bridge Works

Before receiving a custom bridge, dental implants are surgically placed in the jaw. They provide unrivaled support for restorations.

Dental Treatment Timeline

At Smile Montreal, QC, we tailor our dentistry procedures to fit the needs of each individual patient. A typical implant-supported bridge treatment timeline includes several steps: 
"Our practice utilizes innovative technologies including E4D computer-assisted imaging."
"Our practice utilizes innovative technologies including E4D computer-assisted imaging."

​Consultation

Dr. Casey will first perform an oral exam and take x-rays to ensure you meet the requirements to support implants. We will also evaluate your bone health using a computed tomography (CT) scanner, develop a treatment plan, and help you select the materials for your bridge. Most patients choose zirconia or porcelain, especially when replacing a front tooth, for their natural-looking results. 

Implant Placement
 

During a minor surgical procedure, the dentist will place two or more titanium posts to support the bridge. You will typically need three to six months' time to heal from this first phase of the dental treatment. 

​Integration and Preparation

During the healing period, the posts will fuse with your bone tissue in a process called osseointegration. Once the integration is complete, the dental implants are fitted with abutments that will attach directly to your bridge.

Impressions
 

The dentist will take impressions of your mouth in order to create your permanent bridge. Our practice utilizes innovative technologies including E4D computer-assisted imaging to electronically capture your bite and plan your restoration in a single office visit. The impressions and electronic scans are sent to our trusted nSequence® lab for construction.

Securing the Dental Bridge
 

When your dental bridge is ready, we will schedule an appointment to have it fitted. The dentist will secure the bridge to the implants and make any needed adjustments to ensure the size and positioning is correct.
