Implant-Supported Bridge and Good Oral Health

Dental implants can provide greater stability to a bridge if you have several missing teeth. Good oral health is necessary to be considered for an implant-supported bridge.

Key takeaways:

– Your dentist will need to assess jaw bone strength to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure.

– An implant supported bridge can help strengthen teeth and lead to jaw bone growth.

– Smoking can impact the healing process and your dentist will advise you to quit or cut back.

Regular check-ups with your dentist will help avoid oral health problems such as gum disease which could deny you the opportunity of this procedure.

If you don’t have enough bone in your jaw to support the dental implants, your dentist may suggest a bone graft. Although this will add a bit more time onto your procedure, it’ll give you optimal chances of success for your dental implants.
