When there is a more complicated case such as one involving multiple missing teeth, you may be a candidate for an implant supported bridge. The implant supported bridge process will begin in our office when we do some imaging to determine if you are a candidate for a dental implant. If so, we can refer you to a periodontist or oral surgeon who will attach the implant to your jawbone. Once the implant has been attached, one of our dentists can attach a bridge to the implant.
This process is longer than a fixed implant process but can be indicated for cases that require a greater amount of restorative work where more than one tooth needs to be replaced. After an initial consultation, this is usually addressed by two appointments with an oral surgeon or periodontist, and two appointments with one of our dentists.
