If you are missing multiple consecutive teeth, an implant-supported bridge can help you restore your oral health. Just like a traditional bridge, it is custom-fitted to snugly fit any gaps left behind by your missing teeth.
However, implant-supported bridges differ from traditional bridges because they are not actually attached to the teeth. Instead, they are connected to implant posts, which are surgically attached to your jawbone.
With an implant-supported bridge, you can maintain your ability to chew and enhance the attractiveness of your smile.
Also identified as multiple tooth implants, implant-supported bridges are dental bridges that are bonded to two or more dental implants and do not depend on the neighboring natural teeth for assistance.
If you’re missing two or more teeth in a row, an implant-supported bridge may be a good treatment option for you. It can also be a viable solution if Dr. Amin Samdian and his team are worried about you may put too much pressure on individual implants that aren’t attached to one another. In addition, they act as an alternative to full dental implants or dentures. Dr. Samadian and his team will perform a thorough dental exam to decide if implant-supported bridges are the best option for you.
Take the first step to a healthier smile by scheduling an appointment with Dr. Amin Samadian and his highly trained staff at his San Francisco office.

At the beginning of the procedure, Dr. Samadian’s team will make little cuts in your gums so he can easily view your jawbone. In most instances, implant-supported bridges will require two implant posts but additional posts may be necessary if you require a larger restoration.
Using Xguide navigational live guided surgery, Dr. Samadian’s team can place the implants completely parallel to each other, which is extremely important when receiving implant-supported bridges. With this technique, a “robot” controls the direction of the implant and makes sure that it is placed with maximum accuracy.
You can expect the implants to lastingly integrate into your jaw. As you are healing, Dr. Amin Samadian and his team will place a temporary restoration, which he will replace with your permanent bridge down the road once the integration process is complete.
Unlike dental implants, implant-supported bridges require no surgery and are a very tolerable, straightforward procedure.
With multiple tooth implants, you can replace multiple missing teeth, enhance your ability to chew, and improve your smile.

I could not recommend Dr. Samadian more – AND all of his staff, at that! No longer will I mind or be afraid of going to the dentist.
It’s a completely transformative kind of practice…it was a terrific experience.
Very informative, patient and sensitive to your needs. Very focused, and desires to ensure it’s done properly the first time.
