Implants can be placed anywhere there are missing teeth and there is sufficient bone. If you are missing more than one tooth, 2 or more implants can be strategically placed to support a bridge.
Like a single implant, there are study models and xrays and a special CT scan is done to see if the site can support an implant. Placement of implants is a minor procedure with little to no downtime.
Once the implants are placed and sufficient time has gone by for integration, careful measurements are done to create a custom bridge on abutments by taking an impression and sending it to a local lab. The lab will fabricate your new custom bridge and it is screwed into the implants the following appointment.
- Implant supported bridge is used to replace multiple missing teeth and restore the aesthetics and function of your mouth
- Single restoration that uses dental implants neighboring the space for support
- Stable, fixed and permanent solution
Your new bridge looks and functions just like natural teeth. This gives you the confidence to smile and chew without being embarrassed about your missing teeth.

My wife and I have been going to Dr. Bennett for over four years now. We both have the highest respect for her and her staff. I have had some very extensive dental work, including an implant and have been more than satisfied. We would both recommend her as a professional and a kind caring person.
I have been a patient of Dr. Bennett’s for over 10 years. When I first met Dr. Bennett, my teeth were struggling. Over subsequent years she has restored my teeth to an earlier conditioning status. Her expertise has only been surpassed by her gentleness and her integrity. I have happily recommended Dr. Bennett to other friends and family because she has always been a wonderful and thoughtful person and professional.
Dr. Bennett has cared for me and my family for several years. She and her staff are part of our health routine. We are seen for what’s needed, on time, in pleasant surroundings, by people who are well trained. Even an appointment for the dreaded filling is friendly, painless, and positive.
Dr. Bennett herself is an artist. She has saved some of my teeth, worked on long ago and failing, with great crowns and perfect color matching.
I would like to say “thank you” to Dr. Bennett and Staff for always being there for me – for my regular check ups and cleanings – for “fixing” my teeth (cavities and crowns) and always being gentle and caring for my needs and comfort. Dr Bennett has been my Dentist from the time that I moved here from Sherwood, Oregon. And, I have been very fortunate to have found her.
One of the hardest things about moving is needing to find a new dentist. We are so fortunate to have found Dr. Bennett five years ago. The office atmosphere is so calm and friendly. Dr. Bennett is so thorough in her exams, suggestions for preventions and craftsmanship that we feel very secure in our dental health.
