Dental Implant Bridge
Dr. Henderson may recommend an implant bridge when a patient is missing a single or multiple teeth next to each other. Since a dental implant bridge can provide a way to fill a gap between one or more missing teeth. A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap to be anchoring teeth to attach a false tooth between. This allows you to have less single implant post with utilizing placing 2 implants to support the false teeth in between were you might be missing 1 or more teeth.
