Yorkshire’s Leading Private Dental Practice
The implantation process is very similar. The number of implants you need will depend on the width of the bridge.
The implantologist will space the implants out evenly across the gap and allow your gum and jaw bone time to heal. Once the implants are secure, the implantologist will attach your bridge.
An implant-retained bridge has many benefits over the traditional type.
The viability of a standard bridge is heavily dependent on the strength of the teeth on either side of the gap because they act as anchor points. An implant-retained bridge is totally self-supporting, affixed directly to your jaw.
At Wickersley Dental Practice we aim to provide you will all of the information you will need at your first consultation.
We will also check that dental implants are suitable for you and determine the right treatment to meet your needs.
