Implant Bridges Katy TX

Dental bridges are natural-looking tooth replacements that help maintain facial structure, reduce stress on the jaw and fill in the gaps caused by missing teeth. Bridges are used to replace one or more missing teeth and rely on surrounding healthy teeth for support. This causes damage to healthy teeth and may lead to future tooth loss.
An implant bridge attaches artificial teeth directly to the jaw or under the gum tissue. Implant bridges provide strong, natural looking replacements and rely on implants in the jawbone for each missing tooth. The crowns for each tooth are connected to form one piece.

Benefits Of An Implant Bridge

Implant bridges provide the comfort and support of a traditional bridge without any damaging side effects. The benefit of using implants is that they do not rely on neighboring teeth for support and they are permanent and stable.
Implant Bridges can be used to:
  • Restore a smile
  • Reduce the risk of gum disease
  • Restore the ability to bite and chew
  • Improve speech
  • Prevent remaining teeth from shifting

The Implant Bridge Procedure

The bridge implant process may take place over several months and usually involve several steps:

The First Step

Implants are precisely placed into the jaw bone to mirror the location of the roots of the missing natural teeth.

The Second Step

After appropriate healing time has taken place, to allow for the implant to fuse within the bone, impressions of the teeth and bite are taken to custom fabricate a connector post or abutment, and bridge.

The Final Step

The abutment and bridge are attached to the implant, completing the process. Some patients may experience minor soreness after the dental implant procedure which can be treated with over the counter medication.

Implant Bridge Results

Patients receive all the benefits of natural teeth with their implant bridges. It is important to continue good oral hygiene with the implants, to prevent bacteria build-up which can cause gum disease or bone loss. Implant bridges offer a strong, permanent solution to restore a natural smile.
