Implant Supported Bridges in Denver, CO

It's Like Having Your
Tooth Again!

The most natural way to replace a missing tooth.

Implant Supported Bridges

When replacing three teeth in a row, a fixed bridge anchored to dental implants is the only fixed alternative. The bridge contains all teeth in one piece and is anchored on dental implants. Traditional dentures can’t offer the same stability or function. Using dental implants to replace lost teeth will give you new, unparalleled strength and stability that allows you to eat what you want. It will also preserve your jawbone and facial appearance.


  • The only fixed alternative in this situation.
  • A stable, secure solution that lets you eat what you want.
  • Preserves your facial appearance and prevents bone loss.


This procedure normally includes four visits to the dentist. Most patients report that they were much more comfortable following the procedure than they had anticipated. The course of treatment described here is one of several options available.

1. Before the procedure – We will thoroughly exam the site to determine what needs to be done and take one or more x-rays of the area to prepare for the procedure.


2. Installing the dental implants – Installation of the implants is normally done in a single session.  A temporary bridge may be attached at the same time, making it possible for you to function like normal while waiting for the permanent fixed bridge to be installed. The implants will need a few months to integrate with the jawbone before the next step is taken. This time will vary depending on the implant location and esthetic demands.


3. Taking the implant impression – After the implant has integrated, an impression will be taken so the laboratory can make your final fixed bridge.


4. Attaching the bridge – The final step is the placement of the permanent fixed bridge. You should expect the new teeth to fit and function just like a natural tooth. The new bridge will handle all the pressure that your natural teeth did. You should brush and floss your new bridge and the gums around it as you would a natural tooth.



  • Removable partial denture – This alternative is often perceived as uncomfortable and complicated to use. Function can’t be compared to that of a bridge. A removable partial denture is made of plastic – a material that can’t create the same esthetic result as a porcelain crown. The benefits are few but do exist: natural teeth are spared, it is relatively cheep and simple to install.

I had a long overdue deep cleaning, root canal/crown, AND fillings within a month. Dr. Thurman, Morgan, Kathy and staff were very attentive and kind with not ONLY the procedures and explanations but with checking up on me after the root canal. Also great at helping me figure out my insurance coverage and payments. Dental Elements is GREAT.
