Over the years, Dr. Richard Nejat and Dr. Daniel Nejat have earned a reputation as some of the best New York City dental implants providers. They recommend these teeth replacements for patients who have lost one or more teeth and desire to restore an attractive, healthy smile. Unlike many traditional teeth replacement techniques, dental implants do not contribute to bone loss, and placement of implants does not require drilling or aggressive filing of the adjacent teeth. Dental implants can also be used to support other dental structures, such as a fixed bridge. Read on to learn how an implant-supported dental bridge is created.

Replacing a single missing tooth with an implant has the advantage of removing the need to grind down adjacent teeth as you would to place a bridge. Occasionally, this grinding process can lead to the need for further treatment such as root canal therapy on these prepared teeth. Bridges that are not kept clean can result in decay under the bridge and result in further tooth loss. Remember, dental implants can’t get decay.
