Missing teeth not only look ungainly but also lead to a number of oral health concerns. At Radiance Dentistry in Irving, TX, we offer restorative solutions for patients with missing teeth. We offer treatments for securing your bridge with artificial tooth roots that offer strength and stability. Contact us today to learn more about our services.
Implant-supported bridges are custom restorations. They fill the gaps created by tooth loss by connecting artificial teeth into the jaw. Unlike a traditional bridge that is held in place by dental crowns on each end, an implant-supported bridge is attached to small metal posts that have been surgically placed in the jaw. Over time, these posts are fused with the surrounding bone.
Implant-supported bridges offer a greater number of benefits as compared to traditional implants. They:
- Are secured by artificial tooth roots. You can eat, speak, and smile without worrying over your restoration slipping or falling out of position.
- Restore the appearance of your smile.
- Do not require reshaping healthy surrounding teeth.
- Return stimulation to the jaw by helping to stop bone loss that naturally occurs after tooth loss.
We offer personal consultations where we thoroughly explain the procedure and evaluate your candidacy for the implant-supported bridges.
If you are seeking a treatment involving implant- supported bridges, it is important for you to be in good oral and overall health. If you are missing two to four consecutive teeth in a row and you have a strong jaw, you can opt for the treatment. Patients must have strong jaws in order to support the embedded implant posts. At Radiance Dentistry, we offer an evaluation of the strength of your jaw through digital x-rays and 3-D cone beam scans. If a patient is not a good candidate for an implant-supported bridge due to a lack of jaw strength, we can perform a sinus lift or bone grafting procedure to help them qualify for treatment.
Radiance Dentistry believes in a collaborative approach, and we have had collaboration with an advanced lab for several years. It allows us to provide our patients with beautiful restorations that seem natural. We use a detailed impression of your smile to create implant supported bridges that blend in with your natural smile.
