What is an implant bridge?

Are you missing multiple teeth and considering an implant bridge? Watch this video by experienced Pittsburgh implant dentist Dr. E. Ahono Gildersleeve as she explains the benefits of an implant bridges and why they are a great option for replacing multiple missing teeth.

For some patients, they do need all of their teeth replaced with implants, but they don’t want to take their teeth in and out. Now, for that, I suggest an implant bridge. Unlike an implant denture, which the patient takes in and out to clean, an implant bridge is permanently cemented.

The implant bridge is held on by multiple implants, and then you permanently cement the teeth over top. They look and function just like natural teeth, and these are the closest that you can have to the natural teeth that you used to have.

The implant bridge does not come out. It is removed only by the dentist. Now, these look and function the most, like your natural teeth. These don’t come in and out, and you can eat pretty much everything with these.

The implant bridge is your permanent solution to replace all of your missing teeth.

If you or someone you love is missing teeth and want an alternative to a dental implant, meet with Dr. E. Ahono Gildersleeve to learn about what an implant bridge is and how it can help you obtain a permanent look as close to natural teeth as possible.

The Mini Dental Implant Advantage

Immediate Results

Because they are less invasive, and don’t require the lengthy healing time of traditional implants, they can typically be loaded with crowns, bridges and dentures immediately.

Less Healing Time & Fewer Visits

Because mini implants are much smaller, placing them is a less invasive procedure—requiring less healing time and discomfort, and fewer visits.

No More Decay

Mini implants are made out of titanium—the same type of material that is used on artificial joints, and they are not subject to decay or periodontal disease.
