At the Marylebone Implant Centre we often get asked the question “What is a Dental Implant Bridge?” or “Is a Dental Implant supported bridge better than having a normal bridge?” A Dental Implant supported bridge is similar to a conventional bridge however it is supported by dental Implants and not by your natural teeth which makes it a much more stable and secure restoration as it can only be removed by a dentist. A dental Implant bridge is mostly used when someone has more than 1 tooth missing in a row.
Depending on how many teeth are missing dental Implants can be surgically placed into the jawbone in certain positions that they can support a multiple tooth bridge and also in a position where the bone is in good health and condition. In the event that you do not have enough bone in the area to anchor the Implants this bone can be built up using a procedure called bone grafting. A final dental Implant bridge restoration is then prepared and fitted after approximately 3 months. This called the integration period.
As a dental surgery that specialises in dental Implants we are firm believers that Implants are an excellent way to replace missing teeth.

Here are 5 advantages from us at the Marylebone Implant centre on how we think having a dental Implant Bridge is an excellent and successful treatment for many suitable patients:
- More stable than a conventional bridge- Effective, Stronger, longer life span
Because a dental Implant bridge is supported by dental Implants made from titanium it can be more stable, stronger and effective then a regular crown or bridge. Also when looked after correctly it can last for a lifetime and have a much longer life span than any other non Implant supported restorations.
- Excellent treatment for patients who have multiple missing or failing teeth in a row
If a patient has several teeth in a row are missing in part of the mouth, a bridge supported by dental implants would be a more favourable outcome rather than several dental implants next to each other.
It may be a good option for people who are on a budget as it can be cheaper than having all individual single dental Implants. We also have a payment plan here at the Marylebone implant Centre to make it financially easier on our patients to spread the cost of the treatment.
- Functional / Natural / aesthetically pleasing / easy to clean
Once a dental Implant bridge is completed it will act as you natural teeth and should give you back the freedom to eat whatever food you wish or help get your speech back, not to mention the finished look which is extremely natural, it will match with your normal teeth and It is also very easy to clean your dental implant bridge. You may need to purchase some special floss or tepe brushes to clean the specific area correct.
- It works independently and does not disrupt other teeth
A dental Implant supported bridge is not attached or anchored onto any surrounding teeth so this makes it very reliable and independent by not interfering with your natural teeth thus making the success rate, life span and durability high.
