Implant Crowns / Bridges

Dental implants can be used to support independent crown structures to replace missing teeth.  This is a very desirable treatment option to replacing the single tooth because, unlike a conventional bridge, a single tooth implant procedure does not affect the adjacent teeth and it often has a similar treatment cost.

It is not always necessary to place a dental implant per tooth.  Very often multiple teeth can be supported by fewer implants than the teeth missing by fabrication of an implant-supported bridge.  This bridge is permanently secured to the implants and cannot be removed by the patient.
