If you have one or more missing teeth an implant bridge might be the answer! They consist of a three-unit ceramic bridge sitting atop a select number of implants instead of natural teeth. The implants hold the bridge in a stable and secure position. Implant Bridges are strong and durable and a cost-effective solution.

Implant Supported Bridges
So whats an implant-supported bridge?
Implant supported bridges are used to replace long spans of missing teeth – they can be utilised to replace anywhere from 3 missing teeth in the mouth to the whole upper and lower arches. They are a fantastic modern solution which can help restore your smile aesthetics, confidence and ability to eat the foods you love. If your teeth have caused you constant headaches, embarrassed you in front of your family, friends and colleagues or disallowed you from eating all the foods you love, you may be eligible for a special treatment which we like to call “All-On-X!”
So, what do we mean by All-On-X?
So, you may have heard of the term “All-on-4” – this is heavily advertised by many dentists and dental companies as an ideal solution to replace all your teeth with a fixed prosthetic bridge resting on 4 dental implants. This is mainly because using 4 dental implants is the cheapest option available. Unfortunately, if even one of the 4 implants fail, the bridge will be rendered useless, very quickly going from All-On-4 to None-On-3. That means that after going through the investment and the process of having implants placed and a non-removable implant bridge made, a patient would have to be downgraded to a removable denture because 3 implants can’t support the original design.
We utilize “All-On-X” which means typically 6 implants or more.
Our goal is to have the most predictable, long-term success as possible, so we prefer to over-engineer rather than do the bare minimum. In a scenario where an implant does have problems, a prosthesis supported by more than four implants can still be maintained and supported predictably and the patient does not have to wear a removable denture.
So, what are the benefits of All-On-X?

Your situation is unique and different to any patient before you. We make sure to evaluate all options, and our default is to plan as many implants as possible to set you up for the safest, strongest, longest-lasting design available.
Step 3 – Implant Placement and Immediate Smile
All-On-X treatment requires a minor surgery, which is performed right here on our state-of-the-art dental chair. Our expert team offers this pain-free surgery with two types of anaesthesia options. Our first option is a sedation formula. This involves giving you a relaxing medication for the night before and an hour before your procedure, to ensure that you are super relaxed.
