Rather than being held in place by your remaining teeth such as standard dental bridges, implant-retained bridges are instead supported by crowns installed to your existing teeth, and implants in the jawbone. Your new implants are built with titanium and are surgically incorporated into your jaw to help support the new teeth. Crowns are subsequently attached to the surrounding teeth to assist in securing the implant. This type of bridge would be a great alternative for the replacement of several missing teeth, but it could also be employed to prevent excess strain on an implant. This process offered by Dr. Brian Wong utilizes innovative technology to create a lasting and improved smile. At Brian Wong D.D.S. P.A. in Frisco, TX, we only utilize high-quality materials to provide you with a stunning and natural smile. Implant-retained bridges are a more affordable remedy to restore lost teeth and help you receive the appearance and ability of your previous teeth.
"Great dentist! I was so nervous about going to the dentist that I waited over a year to make the appointment. I just had an old filling and chipped tooth repaired by StoneBriar. It was the most comfortable dental procedure I have ever had. Everyone was so nice and made me feel super comfortable from the start. I have already made a follow-up appointment for a cleaning.I'm actually looking forward to my next appointment."- J.L. / Yelp / Mar 02, 2018
"I have been a customer for 4 years and I’m really happy with Dr. Wong and his staff members. It was a struggle to find a good dentist when I first moved here. Chris does a wonderful job cleaning my teeth and a very good person to chat with although I wish it was easier to respond bc I can’t when he’s cleaning lol. Dr.Wong is very thorough and always meets my expectations. They are very professional and friendly. They rarely try to upsell me in any thing that is not necessary. Sometimes I push back on x rays but I could see how it’s necessary to detect areas that may be overlooked by the human eye. I love the fact that they still require masks, survey and temperature being checked upon entering the dental chair, despite governor Abbott’s advice to open up all businesses to 100 capacity with no masks required. Thank you for making it a safe place for your staff and customers."- C.L. / Google / May 01, 2021

"I have been going to Dr. Wong for over 15 years. Since day 1, I've been treated like family. One time when I wasn't in my right mind, I tried a dentist that was closer to my house...huge mistake. It was a machine. That's a mistake I'll never make again;. Dr. Wong is HIGHLY recommended!"- M.M. / Google / Apr 17, 2021

Good candidates for implant bridges are any man or woman who is missing several teeth because of a variety of circumstances, for example, genetics, trauma, or lifestyle choices. It's also an ideal alternative for those suffering from jaw clenching and teeth grinding. You must be maintaining pristine gum health before you are eligible to receive an implant. If not, a bone graft or augmentation may need to be completed prior to the implant installation procedure. One of our dentists will examine your overall dental health and decide whether implant bridges are a good choice for you.
What to Expect
The installation of implant bridges is a multi-step procedure. The first step is the surgical placement of the implant into your jaw. After this process takes place, the tissue around the gums will need a few months to recover while allowing the implant time to to integrate properly. Before continuing, your dentist will verify the successful integration of the implant with digital x-rays. If the x-rays reveal that the integration has gone according to plan, then the following phase of your procedure can be initiated. During this procedure, your custom bridge will be anchored to your implant and any necessary crowns will be placed on your adjacent teeth. Your dentist may manipulate your bridge if necessary for proper comfort and fit.
During each step of the process, your implant will need to be properly cleaned everyday. Your dentist could also suggest the use of special tools which may help achieve a more thorough clean between the gum and bridge. You should also plan to continue attending twice yearly checkups and cleanings to adjust the implant as is necessary.
The price of the procedure can fluctuate based upon the amount of lost teeth that are being replaced. During your consult, we will talk to you about the various restorative dentistry choices which may best meet your goals and price range. Our financial planner will speak with your insurer, if you have one, to ascertain what may or might not be paid for by your policy. Brian Wong D.D.S. P.A. also offers numerous payment methods to help make your procedure fit your budget.
