New technology to improve dental implant bridges invented by Dr. Avinash Bidra, associate professor at the UConn School of Dental Medicine, recently received a patent from the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

“As a prosthodontist, this is an exciting time for my specialty, and I am grateful that UConn was able to bring this interesting idea that existed in my mind, all the way to commercialization, and now, a US patent. This innovation will help other dentists and dental technicians improve the quality of their implant prostheses and ultimately improve outcomes for their patients,” said Bidra.
