What Are Dental Bridges?
A bridge is a dental restoration that can replace several consecutive missing teeth. Traditional dental bridges consist of pontics (replacement teeth) and crowns, which cap the abutment teeth (teeth on either side of the gap) and hold the bridge in place. Your bridge will prevent your existing teeth from shifting, restore your smile, and help maintain your natural facial structure.
You can choose between a traditional bridge, which is held in place by abutment teeth, or an implant-supported bridge, which offers added stability and crucial jawbone support.

For Cutting-Edge Dental Care Visit Prosthodontist David Casagrande
Many dentists have to refer out for various steps in the tooth replacement process, which can make it difficult to receive the care you need in a timely manner. Dr. Casagrande, however, is a prosthodontist. His special training in dental prosthetics allows him to handle every step of your treatment for missing teeth, from traditional bridges to implants. He also remains up-to-date with continuing education so that he can provide the most advanced care.
For over 40 years, Boise and Billings patients have trusted Dr. Casagrande to provide the specialized care that many dentists cannot.

The Dental Bridge Timeline
From traditional bridges to implant-supported bridges, Dr. Casagrande combines cutting-edge dentistry with first-class care and respect for each of his patients.
If you are receiving an implant-supported bridge, Dr. Casagrande will have to place your dental implants in an initial surgery. It will take about four to six months for your implants to fuse with your jaw tissue. At this point, you can return to one of our offices so Dr. Casagrande can place your abutments, which are the connector pieces that will secure your bridge to your implants. After a brief healing period of just a few weeks, Dr. Casagrande can place your permanent bridge during a third appointment.
Need a More Comprehensive Smile Restoration? Try Full Arch Replacement With Promax Implant Bridges
The PROMAX® implant bridge is one of the most innovative implant dentistry options we offer. Typically secured by four to six dental implants, this incredibly lightweight bridge uses individual crowns rather than fused pontics to replace up to a full arch of teeth. This makes it much easier to repair your restoration if a single part becomes damaged. During your consultation, Dr. Casagrande can determine if the PROMAX bridge is the right solution for your smile.

We Offer Financing To Keep Your New Smile Affordable
Depending on your dental insurance, at least part of the cost of your new dental bridge may be covered. However, if you are uninsured or have high out-of-pocket costs, the price of treatment may feel like a barrier between you and a healthy, beautiful smile.
A new dental bridge is more than just a way to replace missing teeth—it's an investment in your appearance, your confidence, your ability to eat without restrictions, and your overall quality of life. We want to make these benefits available to all our patients regardless of insurance or financial status, so we offer financing through CareCredit® and LendingClub®. They offer loans with little or no interest and flexible payment periods that can keep your costs manageable.
