Implant Supported Bridges by Bryan Hill, DDS
When tooth loss affects two or three teeth in a row, an implant supported bridge can return full form and function to your smile. Usually, a bridge requires the placement of two implant posts into the jaw bone. After about four months, bone growth surrounds the posts, making them sturdy and strong enough to support a prosthetic bridge.
Dr. Bryan Hill strategically places dental implants, so they equally support the prosthetic bridge. Bridges are made of porcelain matched to the patients’ surrounding teeth. Bridges are permanently placed on the posts using secure abutments and avoid the need for adhesive pastes or metal clasps to remain secure. Implants also provide the added benefit of preserving jaw bone mass, maintaining your youthful facial structure and protecting the health of surrounding teeth.
Treating people in Spokane and surrounding communities, Dr. Bryan Hill can replace several teeth with a comfortable and comprehensive implant-supported bridge.
