If you have lost a tooth, for any reason, you are likely wondering about your options to restore it. Implant crowns and bridges are a great alternative to a traditional bridge or removable denture to fix those gaps. To discover if an implant bridge or crown is right for you, reach out to an experienced dental professional. Our dental team at the Dental Associates of Basking Ridge would be happy to assist you. If you are interested in an implant, do not hesitate to contact us today to get started.
Crown Implants vs. Bridge Implants
The type of implant that you will need depends on the number of teeth that are missing. If you require a single tooth replacement, a crown implant will be necessary. However, if you are missing multiple teeth, you will need a bridge replacement.
When do I need an implant?
If you are interested in filling gaps in your smile, you may want to consider a dental implant. A dental implant is a cylindrical post made of titanium. The post is surgically implanted into the jawbone. An implant can be used to secure a single crown or a bridge.
Before the procedure begins, you will have to undergo a series of x-rays. In most cases, bridge implants are installed with a temporary bridge. After a few months, a permanent bridge is installed. To evaluate your specific needs, it is important to consult with an experienced dental professional who will explain your options and how you can discover what is best for you and your smile. Give our dental office a call today to move forward.
What are the benefits of implant bridges and crowns?
There are various benefits to either a bridge or crown implant. A bridge or crown implant will function as your natural teeth would. They are a great option for individuals who are looking for a strong set of new teeth.
The following are benefits that you can enjoy with either a bridge or crown implant:
- Restore your smile
- Help speaking more easily
- Long-lasting solution
