The implant is placed in the jawbone for each missing tooth and the implant will support the bridge. The crowns are connected to each other to form one piece
When teeth fall out because of accidents, teeth decay or gum disease, it causes an unsightly gap in the smile, so if you have more than one tooth missing It also may be used when your dentist is concerned that you might put too much pressure on individual implants.
When there are gaps in the teeth, the surrounding teeth move to take advantage of the space; this puts them out of alignment for a good bite. Fewer teeth also mean that the jawbone starts to shrink, causing a change to the facial structure and to the smile.
Whether there is just one tooth missing or two or three, an implant-supported bridge can be used to fill the gap.Back to Dental Implants
