Hello doctor,

Are implant supported bridges good? Will they cause bad breath in the long term? I have dental bridges in my four front teeth for about eight years, but now it is causing bad odor.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Implant supported bridge is an extremely good option for replacement of missing teeth. Implant is the best treatment option in dentistry and it is a lifelong treatment option. It stays for ur whole life without causing any problem. Once osseointegration has taken place successfully it acts extremely perfect. But you have to maintain your oral hygiene nicely. You have to use electric brushes for maintaining your implant and you have to visit the dentist every year for follow up for scaling and polishing, just for maintaining your oral hygiene. Go for It.

It is the best treatment option if you are healthy systemically. Patients suffering from high blood pressure or diabetes might have some problems. So your dentist will decide what is best in those conditions after all the blood tests, OPG, and CBCT (will decide your bone condition) diagnosis.

I hope this helps.
