While a traditional bridge is supported by the surrounding teeth, an implant-supported bridge is attached to dental implants fixed into the jaw. This method is generally preferred by dentists for restorative work to replace a single tooth or several teeth in a row.
The advantages of an implant-supported bridge include:
– Flexibility in placement of the implants
– Permanently attached and long-lasting
– More secure than traditional bridges or dentures
An implant supported bridge is also a “more cost effective option” than replacing teeth individually. More information and details about implant supported bridges can be found at https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/what-is-an-implant-supported-bridge/
