State of the Art Dental Implant Bridges in Delray Beach, FL
What are dental implant bridges?
Conventional crown and bridge cases utilize natural teeth that must be altered so that the replacement teeth can be connected to them. It should be stated that when natural teeth are missing, you do not need an implant placed for each tooth that is missing. Instead, a minimal number of dental implants are strategically placed where the teeth are missing and these support the fixed crown and bridge. In this way, no existing natural teeth are altered.
Benefits of dental implant bridges
Permanent crown and bridge over implants is an ideal way to replace missing teeth and give patients the look and feel of their own natural teeth. Missing teeth need to be replaced for improved function, aesthetics, and to maintain the position of the adjacent teeth. Dental implants with crowns attached to them are an ideal way to replace multiple teeth that are missing.
What is the dental implant bridges process
Impressions are taken of the implants, then the laboratory fabricates crowns through 3D imaging software and electronic scanners, then, they attach to the implants to replace the missing teeth. An entire set of upper or lower teeth can be replaced with as few as six implants to support all of the replacement teeth. This is a permanent restoration that does not come out.
What is the cost of dental implant bridges?
The cost of dental implant bridges varies depending upon each patients needs. You will discuss your goals with the doctor and the doctor will let you know exactly what you need. The cost will be based on whether or not you need a single bridge, or a full set of upper and lower. Another factor to determine cost is condition of your gums and existing teeth.
