WHAT ARE IMPLANT-RETAINED BRIDGES?
Rather than being supported by your remaining teeth like regular dental bridges, implant-retained bridges are supported by crowns placed on implants in the jawbone. The implants are made of titanium and are surgically placed into your jaw to support dental restorations. Crowns are subsequently attached to the surrounding teeth to further secure the implant. An implant-supported bridge can be a good solution for replacing more than one missing tooth and can also help to avoid a buildup of pressure on the implant. This procedure, performed by Dr. Mohit Shardha, uses advanced technology to create a beautiful, lasting smile. At Zensmiles in Frisco, TX, we only use high-quality materials to give you a beautiful smile that looks and feels natural. Implant-retained bridges are a more affordable remedy to restore lost teeth and help you regain the appearance and function of your original teeth.
Implant-Retained Bridges Reviews
"Great experience at zensmiles and dr. Sharda, This revew is long overdue, I was a very challenging case due to bone loss from my medical conditions, several dental surgeons had given up on me before coming here. Dr Sharda planned my surgery meticulously and place computer guided implants which I saw being placed vertually even before the surgery was done. I got implant bridges and love them, no problems after surgery or after bridges. I got the iv sedation done and did not remember a thing, being a RN and in healthcare for more than 3 decades I know the importance of finding a great surgeon and an anesthesiologist to put me to sleep and I am so glad I found both in Dr. Sharda. Thanks and God bless you all!"- J.R. / Google / Apr 04, 2019
Candidates FOR IMPLANT-SUPPORTED BRIDGES
Good candidates for implant bridges are typically people missing multiple teeth due to genetics, trauma, or lifestyle choices. This procedure might also be a good option for those prone to teeth grinding and jaw clenching. You must have pristine gum and bone health before getting an implant. If not, bone augmentation may be necessary before the implant procedure can begin. Dr. Shardha will examine your overall oral health and decide if implant bridges are right for you.
What to Expect
The process of placing implant bridges involves several steps. The first step is to surgically place the implant into your jaw. Afterward, your jaw tissue will require a few months to recover, and the implant will need the opportunity to integrate with your jawbone. Before continuing the process, Dr. Shardha will check to see if the implant has integrated into your jawbone successfully. If all has gone according to plan, we will move to the next stage of the procedure by attaching your custom bridge to your implant and placing any necessary crowns on your adjacent teeth. Dr. Shardha may tweak your bridge as needed for proper comfort and fit.
