Dental Implants to Support Bridges
Friday, December 16th, 2011
Alone, dental implants offer an optimal solution for replacing one or two missing teeth, spaced together or throughout your mouth. However, for smiles that are impacted by several missing teeth in a row, Fairfax cosmetic dentist, Dr. Pamela Marzban, may recommend a dental bridge supported by dental implants.
Supporting Dental Bridges with Implants
Dental implants are secured directly into your jawbone making them the most secure solution for replacing missing teeth. When you have a row of missing teeth, a dental implant can be placed in the end spaces and used to hold false teeth into place. A bridge can be affixed to these false teeth, providing support for your bridge similar to that provided by your natural teeth.
This is an ideal solution for patients who suffer from three or more missing teeth in a row. When you come to our comfortable office for your initial consultation, Dr. Marzban will carefully evaluate your smile and help you determine what method of tooth replacement will best meet your needs.
