For a patient who is missing several adjacent teeth, Dr. Anuradha Vaddineni can provide an implant bridge in North Richland Hills, Texas. The dental implants will replace not just your natural teeth, but some of the tooth roots. These replacement tooth roots will help preserve your jawbone. With traditional bridges, the jawbone is not stimulated by replacement tooth roots, so it begins to deteriorate. This can lead to a collapsed and unattractive smile. Unlike traditional dental bridges, implant bridges do not need support from the adjacent teeth. Because of this, none of your natural teeth will be altered.
To place your implant bridges, our dentist will first surgically place the dental implant posts into the bone sockets of the missing teeth. During the healing process, the jawbone bonds with the implant posts. If desired, temporary teeth can be worn over the implants during this time. Impressions of your teeth are taken so that your dental bridge can be constructed. When it is ready, the dental bridge will be attached to the dental implants. Your implant bridge will restore your ability to eat and speak properly, as well as your confidence.
