Implant Secured Dental Bridge

Traditional dental bridges are a cost-effective solution for patients who are missing teeth. Dental bridges are designed to blend seamlessly with your natural smile. A traditional dental bridge is supported by two adjacent teeth that serve as anchors (support system) for the dental bridge, requiring existing teeth to be compromised for the placement of dental crowns and the securing of the bridge.

A dental implant secured dental bridge is supported by strategically placed dental implants. Dental implant secured dental bridges don’t compromise the health of the existing teeth, prevent bone loss and gum recession and support the natural alignment of the bite.

Dental Bridges What to Expect

If you are missing one or more teeth, Dr. Srikureja will perform an extensive oral health exam and analysis to determine the right restorative dentistry treatment to restore your smile. Dr.  Srikureja will consult with you one on one to discuss all of your treatment options. Together, you and your Montclair Plaza dentist will make an informed decision about your tooth replacement solution.

Placing a dental bridge will depend on whether or not your dental bridge will be supported by adjacent teeth or dental implants.

If dental implants are used to secure your dental bridge, the first step is to attach the dental implants into the jaw surgically. Typically the healing process will take 3-6 months. When the healing process is complete, your custom designed dental bridge will be fit and placed.

For traditional dental bridges, the dental bridge is supported using adjacent teeth. A pontic replaces the missing tooth and crowns are placed on the anchor teeth for extra support.
