Implant-Supported Bridgework

One of the favourable reasons for choosing implant-supported bridges is that they offer increased strength and stability that regular bridgework simply cannot.

Are you looking to replace regular bridgework as your oral health has deteriorated? Or perhaps you’re searching for an alternative yet cost-effective way to replace missing teeth?

If that’s the case, implant-supported bridges should be on your list of treatments to explore. Here at Mint Dental Clinic in Elephant & Castle, we’re pleased to offer implant-supported bridges that offer patients a long-term but affordable solution to missing teeth.

Dental Implant Bridges Explained

Implant-supported bridges are often prescribed to replace multiple missing teeth in a row.

One benefit of choosing an implant-integrated system like implant-supported bridges is that they provide a solid infrastructure for long-term replacement teeth to sit. Unlike regular bridgework, there is no need to cause damage to otherwise healthy teeth by filing them down to fit a crown on top to anchor the bridge.

As implant-supported bridges are supported by dental implants and not real, natural teeth, there is no need to impact otherwise healthy teeth.

By choosing Mint Dental for this implant-based system, patients can benefit from specialists who utilise advanced digital technology to plan the implant location and angulation before surgery.

For patients, this helps them to achieve the best functional and natural-looking final result.

In the case of dental implants, no better tooth replacement method currently exists.

The second benefit is that implant bridges can bring down the cost of your treatment because fewer implants are placed, unlike individual tooth implant placement. And as the final restoration uses a bridge (a cheaper repair compared to implant-supported crowns), the cost is brought down even more.

However, cost should be a factor when replacing missing teeth, but it should not always conclude your decision.

What's the better solution?

Whilst other traditional tooth replacement methods are widely used, trusted tooth prostheses exist, like dental bridges and dentures. But as professionals, we know truthfully that they only worsen the oral condition over time and are primarily superficial repairs.

No other prosthesis or replacement solution will be as durable or provide a natural, predictable fix. So, combining implants into your missing teeth restoration, like with implant-supported dentures, will improve your dentition, oral health, eating, bite and speech functions.

Before and after dental implants

  • Clinical spec: After a failed dental bridge this patient was left with a large gap which affected her smile and function. Dental implants were used to restore both.

The Implant Bridge Procedure

Dental implant surgery involves placing artificial tooth roots (small titanium screws) into the jawbone. 

And once the implants have been placed, we will have to allow for a minimum period of healing called osseointegration, which typically takes three or so months.

The process of osseointegration cannot be rushed or skipped. It’s the essential part of the procedure that allows the bone to fuse with the dental implant. Without it, the implant would fail.

However, don’t worry; during this healing period, we will provide you with a temporary set of teeth that can be worn over the implant site while we wait for it to be strong enough to hold the bridgework.

Once the implant has healed, you’ll be invited back into the studio to uncover the implant and attach the necessary abutments (small metal posts that serve as the foundation for new teeth or restorations to be placed).

After this step, we will have to give the gums some time to heal before the bridge is set.

One particular implant surgery called ‘Same-Day Teeth‘ will allow dentists to complete the process in one stage. Learn more.

That’s why you should seek out our implant dentists, who will be able to explain things to you in a much clearer and more understandable way.

Dental implants are not always a one size fits all solution

4 years a customer and always professional yet friendly service. Corrected my major issues (fillings/caps) and while they’re keen to ensure ongoing ‘perfect teeth’ they don’t hard sell peripheral / optional treatments. Highly recommended

I was looking for somewhere with a personal touch, that I could trust and that’s what I got at Mint. They always remember my name and are so polite. After a year of zoom meetings I really wanted my teeth to be straight and the results completely surpassed my expectations. I now feel comfortable taking photos! The team explained everything clearly (I felt I could ask anything multiple times) appointments were always organised and it was a really easy, worthwhile process. My teeth look like my teeth but are now at their best.

The clinic is a really lovely place to visit – it is extremely clean and all of the staff are very friendly. They were kind and reassuring all the way through my Invisalign treatment – as well as having amazing technology at their disposal. Dr Imran is so accommodating and kept everything simple, addressing any concerns straight away. All in all I would definitely recommend Mint Dental Clinic, a lovely experience all round.
