Dental Implants – Implant Bridges

Implant Bridges at Thorndon Dental

Bridging the Gap with Advanced Solutions

For those missing multiple teeth, implant bridges represent a cutting-edge, durable solution that restores functionality and aesthetics to your smile. Unlike traditional bridges, implant-supported bridges do not rely on adjacent teeth for support, making them a healthier option for your overall dental wellbeing. Thorndon Dental specialises in implant bridges, offering you a seamless and natural-looking way to fill larger gaps in your mouth.

The Superior Choice for Multiple Missing Teeth

Implant bridges utilise titanium implants placed in the jawbone as the foundation for a series of connected crowns. This not only provides a stable support system for the replacement teeth but also helps preserve jawbone integrity and prevents the shifting of remaining teeth.

Benefits of Implant Bridges

  • Aesthetic and Functional Restoration: Implant bridges look and feel like your natural teeth, restoring your smile and chewing ability.
  • Preservation of Bone and Oral Health: By stimulating the jawbone, implant bridges help prevent bone loss and maintain facial structure.
  • Durability and Longevity: Made from high-quality materials, implant bridges are designed to last for many years with proper care.
  • No Damage to Adjacent Teeth: Unlike traditional bridges, implant bridges do not require altering surrounding healthy teeth, preserving your natural tooth structure.

The Process

  1. Consultation and Planning: Your journey starts with a detailed consultation at Thorndon Dental, where we assess your specific needs and determine the feasibility of an implant bridge for your situation.
  2. Implant Placement: Strategic placement of implants in the jawbone is performed under local anesthesia, ensuring minimal discomfort. These implants will serve as the pillars for your new bridge.
  3. Healing and Osseointegration: A period of healing is required for the implants to integrate with the bone, a process that typically takes a few months. This ensures a solid foundation for your new teeth.
  4. Bridge Fabrication and Placement: Once healing is complete, a custom-made bridge is fabricated to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, and then securely attached to the implants.
