Bridge Implants

A bridge is used when a patient has one or more teeth missing — the bridge is anchored to the teeth on either side of the missing teeth. In the case of bridge implants, the teeth are anchored using implants rather than natural teeth.

Do you have several missing teeth? Is it embarrassing when you smile or talk? Many people who have missing teeth find themselves covering their mouth during conversations. They seldom smile in pictures or in person and it hinders their life dramatically.

At Dr. Gina Ha & Associates, we recommend bridge implants to replace several missing teeth without invasive treatments. You can have a beautiful smile you’re proud of in the span of a few office visits.

Reasons to Choose Bridge Implants and Procedure

At Dr. Gina Ha & Associates, we find several reasons to recommend a bridge implant rather than the traditional bridge. In some cases, the shape of the jaw or the way that the sinus cavity and/or bone structure is situated makes a bridge implant a better solution. We may not recommend bridge implants for patients who put a lot of pressure on that area of their mouth. Every bite is different, so we take an individualized approach to assess how a treatment will perform over time for the patient.

The procedure is conducted much like an individual implant. After a full assessment, surgery is scheduled to insert the implants. The time frame and placement depends on your own jaw bone quality and quantity. At Dr. Gina Ha & Associates, we advise patients of the time frame between surgeries and what to expect in between. In some cases, the bridge implant can be completed that day. For other patients, the implant needs time to heal before the bridge can be placed. Your individual process depends on the health of the tissue and whether other treatments need to be conducted, such as bone grafting.

When a patient needs to wait between the implant and the final bridge placement, we offer solutions for temporary teeth. This way, you don’t have to worry about the embarrassment of being without teeth for any length of time.
