A Dental Bridge is a common way to replace one or multiple missing teeth and helps to bridge the gap and restore your smile. Bridges can be supported by crowns placed over your natural teeth on either side of the artificial teeth or can be implant-supported where two implants are placed on either side of the bridge. These teeth act as anchors and allow the bridge to attach securely.  Tooth bridges are a great solution because they do not slip around like other appliances.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

Bridges can provide many benefits and can help you restore your smile, and allow your teeth to function properly. At Floor Dental Group we provide many restorative options for our patients and can help you choose the option that meets your needs.

 

Corrects Bite

 

If a patient has a bite that is off or causing problems eating or speaking, bridges can restore your bite and your smile. Bridges will allow you to bite properly and look natural when smiling or speaking around others.

 

Restores Function

 

A dental bridge can help a patient chew properly and speak with ease again. Your confidence will increase and the bridge can allow you to live a healthy lifestyle.

 

Holds Adjacent Teeth in Place

 

As we age teeth can move and this can cause our jaw or mouth to look sunken in. When you restore your smile with a bridge, the bridge will help to hold your teeth in place and prevent jaw deterioration.

 

Restores Your Smile

 

Bridges can help to restore your smile and look aesthetically pleasing. When you are in front of others you can smile and speak with ease and enjoy a healthy lifestyle.

When Is a Tooth Bridge Needed?

Missing teeth can cause problems eating or speaking. The empty space in your mouth will eventually allow your other teeth to move out of place, and this can affect the structure and function of your smile. Tooth bridges are a great solution for patients that have difficulty chewing, issues with bite, and pain in the jaw around the missing teeth.

 

Bridges can help you feel less self-conscious when around others and restore your smile. They provide support to keep teeth in place and look natural in the mouth. Bridges are a great way alternative to other solutions and are a common choice for patients seeking to restore their smile.

Dental Bridge vs. Implants

Choosing the best restorative option can be stressful, and our team at Floor Dental Group is here to support our patients every step of the way. When choosing the best option our team will take a detailed look at your smile, and depending on the severity and correction needed, can help you choose what option is best. Many patients look at both dental bridges and implants as an option for tooth replacement. Both are great solutions and our doctors can help you decide if you are a candidate.

 

Dental Bridge

 

Dental bridges are good for patients that do not want invasive surgery but want to restore their smile. Bridges are typically covered by insurance and cost less compared to other options. The procedure is quicker and the bridge can be anchored by crowns placed on your natural teeth, or by dental implants on either side of the bridge. Bridges can be fixed and do not slip out like other options.

 

Dental Implants

 

Dental implants are great for patients looking for a more permanent solution. The implant is placed in the jaw and is anchored similar to a natural tooth root. The procedure is more invasive and does require healing time while the implants fuse to the jaw bone. Implants can last 15 years or more and are the longest-lasting solution available. Dental implants have a very high success rate, function like natural teeth, and restore strength.

 

At Floor Dental Group we want you to choose the option that fits your needs. During our detailed consultation process, we will look at the condition of your teeth and mouth, the number of teeth that require replacement, and your overall health. Our skilled doctors will create a customized treatment plan that works for you. Let Floor Dental Group help you take that first step towards a brand-new smile.
