While a traditional bridge is supported by the surrounding teeth, an implant-supported bridge is attached to dental implants fixed into the jaw. This method is generally preferred by dentists for restorative work to replace a single tooth or several teeth in a row.

The advantages of an implant-supported bridge include:

– Flexibility in placement of the implants

– Permanently attached and long-lasting

– More secure than traditional bridges or dentures

An implant supported bridge is also a “more cost effective option” than replacing teeth individually. More information and details about implant supported bridges can be found at https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/what-is-an-implant-supported-bridge/
