The Transformative Power of an Implant Bridge

Our team has had the honor of seeing firsthand the life-changing potential of dental restoration. A dental implant bridge is one intervention that continually stands out because it’s more than a treatment; it’s a transformative experience that can greatly improve a person's quality of life.

The Impact of an Implant Bridge on Self-Confidence

The increased self-confidence that comes with implant-supported dental bridges is one of the most significant benefits our patients experience. We've met patients who were originally reluctant to smile or participate in social activities because they had tooth decay or several missing teeth. After receiving their dental implant bridge, they started to engage in activities they’d been missing out on and grin more boldly.

The alteration is often profoundly emotional and psychological as much as physical. Patients frequently regain their happiness in life in addition to their teeth. Seeing this change and the positive effect it has on a patient's self-esteem is incredibly satisfying.

Restoration of Function Using a Dental Implant Bridge

Implant bridges, a mainstay of cosmetic dentistry, do more than just look good. They bring functionality back. Implant bridges improve overall health and nutrition by enabling patients to enjoy a greater range of meals without worrying about the stability or integrity of their teeth.

The success of implant dentistry is demonstrated by the fact that some patients have even reported having better speech after receiving an implant bridge. This is especially critical for people who have had trouble speaking and chewing normally due to missing teeth or the well-known “slip” of traditional dentures.

Longevity and Durability of Implant-Supported Bridges

An implant-supported bridge is a top choice for tooth replacement because of its duration and toughness. We consider them an excellent long-term investment in a person's oral health and the cost can often be supported in part by dental insurance. 

Secure Smiles Implant bridges are supported by implants comprised of titanium. The titanium posts are implanted in the jawbone and begin to integrate.

The process of the jawbone fusing to the implant, known as osseointegration, creates a strong and long-lasting foundation for the bridge. Once the osseointegration is complete and the final bridge is placed, patients regain 90% of their chewing capabilities. The Secure smiles Implant Bridge can last a lifetime with regular maintenance and care.

Preserving Facial Structure and Oral Health

By halting the bone loss that frequently follows tooth loss, dental implants aid in maintaining the jawbone and the structure of the face. This allows patients to maintain their appearance and avoid the sunken look that often occurs with missing teeth.

These implants act as artificial tooth roots, providing the necessary stimulation for bone cells, just like natural teeth would. This stimulation prevents the bone loss that typically follows tooth extraction.

When a tooth is lost and not replaced, the lack of stimulation causes the jawbone in the area to slowly resorb, altering the overall facial structure over time. By replacing the lost tooth with an implant, normal bone stimulation can continue, maintaining the integrity of the jawbone and thereby preserving the natural shape and contour of the face.
