Dental implants are artificial roots that can be utilized in multiple ways to achieve a variety of functional results. In some situations, an implant bridge is the most cost effective treatment option. For example, if a patient is missing three teeth, an implant crown option would require three dental implants and three implant crowns. As a more affordable option, two implants could be placed with a three tooth bridge. In this scenario, the patient saved money by having two implants rather than three. Every case is unique, and many factors come into play including bone density, bone availability, and bite force. In the right situations, implant bridges can be an excellent treatment option.
