If you have several missing teeth in a row, our experienced oral and maxillofacial surgeon may recommend implant-supported dental bridges to restore your smile. Unlike traditional bridges, implant-supported bridges will not require periodic replacements to maintain your smile. When properly cared for, your restoration will last for a lifetime. Call Aspire Surgical at 801-487-3264 to make your appointment with Dr. Joseph Fullmer, and to learn more about implant-supported bridges in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Traditional dental bridges require the teeth adjacent to your restoration to be ground down and capped with a dental crown in order to anchor and support the bridge. Implant bridges, however, are placed directly into the jawbone to provide stability and hold the bridge in place. This eliminates the need to grind down any healthy tooth structure, and prevents the development of problems with those teeth in the future.
Our oral and maxillofacial surgeon uses the latest technologies to create, place, and secure your implant bridges, and pays close attention to your smile to ensure that you can enjoy a beautiful restoration and continued good health in the surrounding tissues, especially the gum tissue around your implant.
We invite you to contact our office for more information about implant-supported dental bridges and schedule a consultation with our doctor.
