As with a normal implant, good oral health is a requisite if having an implant-supported bridge fitted. These bridges are probably the best method of replacing two or more missing teeth which are adjacent.
The procedure involves fitting metal posts into the jawbone and then attaching the bridge to these posts. Before a dentist will fit an implant-supported bridge, the patient’s dental health will be thoroughly checked including:
- Signs of gum disease
- Density of jawbone
- Any dental issues
Any dental problems will “need to be fully treated” before fitting the bridge in order to maximise the chances of a successful outcome and you can read more at https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/who-is-a-candidate-for-an-implant-supported-bridge/.
