Who Is a Candidate For a Dental Bridge?

In this video, Dr. Rameek McNair explains what makes someone a good candidate for an implant bridge to restore their smile and function.

A good candidate for an implant bridge typically meets several important criteria to ensure the success of the procedure:

1. Adequate Bone Support: One of the most crucial factors is having sufficient bone density and volume in the area where the implants will be placed. This bone support is essential as it provides the necessary foundation for the implants to anchor securely.

2. Stable Adjacent Teeth: The teeth adjacent to the gap where the bridge will be placed must be healthy and stable. These teeth play a critical role in providing additional support and stability to the bridge, especially if the bridge is designed to be anchored to both implants and natural teeth.

3. Overall Dental Health: Beyond the specific site for the bridge, the overall health of the patient’s mouth should be good, with no active periodontal disease or other conditions that might compromise the integrity or longevity of the implant bridge.

In essence, a combination of strong, healthy adjacent teeth and adequate bone density forms the ideal scenario for implant bridge placement, contributing to both the strength and stability of the final restoration.
