If you are missing several consecutive teeth, an implant-supported bridge can restore your oral health. Just like a traditional bridge, it is custom-designed to comfortably fit the gap left behind by your missing teeth.
However, implant-supported bridges differ from traditional bridges because they are not attached to the teeth. Instead, they are connected to implant posts, which are surgically affixed in your jawbone.
With an implant-supported bridge, you can preserve your ability to chew while maintaining the attractiveness of your smile.
Also known as multiple tooth implants, implant-supported bridges are dental bridges that are secured to two or more dental implants and do not depend on the adjacent natural teeth for support.
If you’re missing two or more teeth in a row, an implant-supported bridge may be a good option. It can also be a viable treatment if Dr. Amin Samdian is concerned that you may put too much pressure on individual implants that aren’t connected to one another. In addition, they may be an alternative to full dental implants and dentures. Dr. Samadian will perform a comprehensive exam to determine if implant-supported bridges are right for you.

At the beginning of the procedure, Dr. Amin Samadian will make small incisions in your gums so he can access your jawbone. In most cases, implant-supported bridges will require two implant posts but additional posts may be necessary if you have a larger restoration.
Using Xguide navigational live guided surgery, Dr. Samadian is able to completely place the multiple implants parallel to each other, which is extremely important when receiving implant-supported bridges. With this technique, a “robot” controls the direction of the implant and makes sure that it is placed with the utmost accuracy.
You can expect the implants to permanently integrate with your jaw. As you are healing, Dr. Amin Samadian will place a temporary restoration, which he will eventually replace with your permanent bridge once the integration process is complete.
Unlike dental implants, implant-supported bridges don’t require surgery and are a very tolerable, simple procedure.
With multiple tooth implants, you can restore multiple missing teeth, improve your ability to chew, and enhance your smile.

I could not recommend Dr. Samadian more – AND all of his staff, at that! No longer will I mind or be afraid of going to the dentist.
It’s a completely transformative kind of practice…it was a terrific experience.
Very informative, patient and sensitive to your needs. Very focused, and desires to ensure it’s done properly the first time.
