A permanently secured dental prosthetic can help you regain confidence in your smile, and help you regain a more natural dental function. It is important to recognize that even a single lost tooth can cause serious issues for your oral health. You can face difficulties biting and chewing when forced to work around an absence. This can lead to a taxing of your jaw joints, and can potentially force remaining teeth to take on more wear and tear than is appropriate. A dental bridge can be put in place to offer you a natural-looking solution to this problem. Many patients will opt to support a prosthetic with a dental implant, which can offer many important benefits.

Having A Dental Bridge Placed

A dental bridge is constructed with two abutment dental crowns, which will serve to lock your restoration in its designated position. The crowns are placed over the teeth surrounding your absence in your smile. A pontic, or replacement tooth, is situated between those crowns. It is possible to have more than one replacement tooth in your bridge, so you can close a gap caused by multiple missing teeth.

Using Dental Implants To Improve Your Overall Experience With Prosthetic Dental Work

Securing your replacement tooth with a dental implant effectively gives your prosthetic an artificial root. The implant is secured through a surgical procedure, which can be performed at our office. In fact, every step of this process, from the placement of the implant to the creation and securing of your restoration, can be performed at our office, making this experience more convenient. Implants provide lasting support, while also limiting the movement of neighboring teeth, and providing important stimulation for your jawbone.
