An Implant-supported Bridge Can Provide Aesthetic and Oral Health Benefits
If you are seeking a superior, aesthetically pleasing solution for missing teeth, look no further than Northland Dental Medicine. An implant-supported bridge provided at our Pittsburgh, PA, office is an ideal replacement for lost teeth. Dr. Michael E. Corsello provides both partial and full-arch bridges that combine implant-retained stability with unique flexibility and ease of care. Our state-of-the-art Snaptite Smile® system elevates implant dentistry to a new level, benefiting a wide variety of patients who have suffered from tooth loss.
Benefits of Implant-supported Bridges
Bone loss is common after tooth loss, and patients naturally begin to experience shrinking facial structure around the mouth and shifts in remaining teeth as well. An implant-supported bridge preserves the remaining bone in your jaw, providing needed volume to support your lips and cheeks and stabilize surrounding teeth. With an implant-supported bridge, you can experience fully enhanced function while eating and speaking, without worrying about unstable restorations or dietary restrictions. Compared to conventional dental bridges, which attach to adjacent teeth, an implant-supported bridge is more stable, can appear more natural, and helps prevent jawbone deterioration.
Implant-supported Bridges Treatment Process
If you only need to replace one to three missing teeth, you may benefit from a partial bridge supported by two or more dental implants. You will receive your implant posts during a precise, outpatient procedure at our office. Over the next few months, your jawbone will fuse with your implant posts, allowing them to replace your lost tooth roots, improving oral health by sending regenerative signals to your jaw. While you are healing, we can provide a temporary restoration. Once you have fully healed, you can receive your permanent bridge, which will receive superior support from your dental implants.
Snaptite Smile® Full-arch Bridge
For patients who would like to receive superior restorations, we also offer our advanced Snaptite Smile® system. Partial bridges will be held in place similarly to traditional implant-supported restorations. However, if you are recieving a full-arch bridge, Snaptite Smile® makes it simple for you to remove your bridge for optimal hygiene and reinsert it securely without visiting our office. While routine dental appointments are still important, Snaptite Smile® provides a convenient way for you to keep your teeth cleaner, without having to visit the dentist.
With decades of experience and impeccable credentials, Dr. Corsello is a nationally recognized authority in restorative implant dentistry.
In addition, our full-arch bridge offers an optimal solution for many patients, including those who lack sufficient jaw bone density for traditional dental implants. The Snaptite Smile® system is compatible with all types of implants, including mini dental implants and All-on-4®. The right choice for you depends upon your anatomical proportions, budget, and other factors.
