Implant Dentures vs. Dental Bridges
Dental implants are tooth root replacements made from strong and biocompatible titanium. This material bonds easily with bone. Your dentist implants the root and allows for an integration and healing period—usually several months.
When integration is complete, we top your new roots with dental implants.
Implant-supported prosthetics allow you to replace multiple missing teeth or all of your teeth without paying for an implant for each lost tooth.
For implant-supported dentures in North Tampa, your dentist relies on four to six implant posts to support a complete denture. The integration period is typically the same as with single implants.
If you’re considering an implant-supported bridge in North Tampa, it may mean only one implant to fix your prosthetic.
Implant-supported prosthetics prevent slippage and the need for adhesives and relines.
