Implant-Retained Bridge – Belmont, MA

Bridge the Gap in Your Smile with Implants

If you are missing several teeth, the thought of restoring your smile with multiple dental implants can seem a bit overwhelming. However, what you may not realize is that you do not need one dental implant for each and every missing tooth! In fact, just a few strategically placed implants can support an entire bridge or partial denture. If you want a reliable, long-lasting solution to “bridge” the gap in your smile, contact our office in Belmont today to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. David Salibian.  

Two Consecutive Missing Teeth

Although every case is slightly different, just a single dental implant can usually replace two consecutive missing teeth. Crafted from durable titanium, an implant post can support both a crown and an adjoined artificial tooth. This small type of implant-retained bridge can effectively restore dental function and prevent many of the problems caused by missing teeth, such as increased risk of oral infection and bite misalignment.

Three or More Consecutive Missing Teeth

Many people missing three or more consecutive teeth first consider getting a traditional bridge. This type of dental prosthetic consists of two dental crowns with one or more artificial teeth between them. The crowns of the bridge are placed on top of adjacent healthy teeth, which must be slightly shaved down to make room.

Dental implants offer a way to restore your smile without affecting remaining healthy teeth. Instead of using crowns, two implants are inserted at either end of the dental gap. A bridge is then securely bonded or attached to the implants, restoring your dental function and appearance.

Multiple Missing Teeth Throughout an Arch

Teeth do not always go missing in an orderly fashion. However, even if you are missing several teeth from different parts of your smile, you may still be able to take advantage of dental implants. In fact, with just a few well-placed implants, Dr. Salibian may be able to completely restore your smile with a partial denture. The best way to determine if an implant-retained partial denture is the right solution for you is to schedule an initial consultation at our conveniently located office in Belmont.
