Bridges and Implants
Monde Dental is your reliable source for superior bridge and implant services in Toronto, Canada. We are committed to helping our patients reclaim their smiles, functionality, and confidence through advanced dental restorative solutions.
Dental bridges serve as fixed, non-removable prosthetic devices specifically designed to replace one or more missing teeth. In this process, the teeth on either side of the gap are used as anchors to secure the bridge, restoring both aesthetic appeal and function to your smile.
Dental bridges are crafted using high-quality materials such as noble alloys, porcelain, or a fusion of porcelain and metal. The structure of a bridge involves abutments, or supporting elements composed of crowns placed on the anchor teeth, and pontics, specialized crowns that fill the gap and connect the abutments.
At Monde Dental, our process for fitting a bridge is meticulous and patient-centric. We prepare the abutments, take precise impressions, and place temporary protective crowns while the customized bridge is being crafted in a dental laboratory. On your subsequent visit, we ensure the bridge fits perfectly before cementing it into place.
Dental implants serve as a robust and natural-looking solution for missing teeth. If a gap from a missing tooth is left unfilled, it can lead to drifting of adjacent teeth and hyper eruption of opposing teeth, altering your bite, potentially causing bone erosion, and impacting your speech.
Dental implants are designed to replace the root of a missing tooth, providing solid support for crowns, bridges, or dentures. Implant-supported dentures have surged in popularity due to the latest innovations in dental techniques and materials.
A typical dental implant consists of three key components:
- Implant Screw: Made of biocompatible titanium, this part is surgically placed into the jawbone, where it fuses with the bone during the healing process.
- Abutment: This metal collar attaches to the top of the implant screw, serving as a base for a crown, bridge, or denture.
- Crown: The crown, or the fabricated tooth, fits atop the abutment. Bridges and dentures can also be secured to the abutment, marking the final step in the implant process.
