What Are Implant-Supported Bridges?
Implant-supported bridges are similar to traditional bridges in that both use a row of artificial teeth to fill the gap left in your smile. But instead of being held in place by dental crowns attached to nearby natural teeth, an implant-supported bridge is supported by small titanium posts embedded in the jaw. Once dental implants fuse with the bone, implants act just like tooth roots to keep bridges, dentures, and crowns firmly in place at all times.
Dr. Craig Goldin, Dr. Marcy Goldin, and Dr. David Whalen at the Cosmetic Dentistry Institute in Troy, MI, use the latest in dental technology and quality restorative materials to create durable, natural-looking bridges that blend into your smile for natural-looking results.

How Implant-Supported Bridges Work
What Makes Implant-Supported Bridges Special?
A Conservative Choice
Dentists like to avoid traditional bridges because they require altering healthy teeth to support the dental bridge. In contrast, implant-supported bridges are held in place with dental implants. We use an i-CAT™ cone beam scanner to determine the best position for implants.
Improved Bone Health
Dental implants function like tooth roots and stimulate the jawbone, encouraging regenerative bone growth that keeps the jaw strong. Without stimulation, the bone surrounding a missing tooth root will recede and allow other teeth to shift out of place.
Removable partial dentures have flaws similar to traditional dentures. They can shift out of place, limiting what you eat and potentially causing you embarrassment when dining out or talking. In contrast, implant-supported bridges are held securely in place because the dental implant fuses with the jawbone.
With proper care, implants can provide decades of support for your dental bridge. While the bridge itself will need to be eventually replaced, your implants might last the rest of your life.
