An implant-supported bridge may be the best option open to your dentist to replace a missing tooth or teeth. A traditional dental bridge is supported by the teeth surrounding the gap, while an implant-supported bridge is fitted to implants in the gum.
This has several advantages as:
– It is ideal for gaps where two or more teeth are missing.
– Implants can be placed in the most suitable areas of the gum.
– Pressure from biting and chewing is evenly distributed across the bridge.
One of the biggest advantages is that an “implant supported bridge looks just like your natural teeth” and further information can be found at https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/what-is-an-implant-supported-bridge/
