If your dentist does not want to insert an implant in a certain area in your mouth because there is insufficient jawbone to support the implant, or perhaps the area is very close to a sinus cavity or nerve, they may choose to avoid that area by putting implants on either sides of the gap.
The implant-supported bridge comprises:
- The implant - made of titanium and surgically put in the jawbone
- The abutment - cylinder made of porcelain, gold, or titanium that is screwed onto the implant
- Restoration - series of crowns (look like natural teeth) connected to form a bridge
