We understand how missing teeth can make it difficult for you from living your day to day lifestyle such as enjoying your meals. Dental Bridge is one of many ways our Buford Dentist can replace your missing teeth so that you can go back to enjoying your life!
If you’re missing one or more teeth, you may notice a difference in chewing and speaking. Dental Bridge is a one of many options we can provide to help restore your smile.
Dental Bridge help maintain the shape of your face, as well as alleviating the stress in your bite by replacing missing teeth.
Sometimes called a fixed partial denture, a dental bridge replaces missing teeth with artificial teeth, looks great, and literally bridges the gap where one or more teeth may have been. The restoration can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these materials and is bonded onto surrounding teeth for support. Our doctor can help you decide which to use, based on the location of the missing tooth (or teeth), its function, aesthetic considerations and cost. Porcelain or ceramic bridges can be matched to the color of your natural teeth.
Unlike a removable bridge, which you can take out and clean, a fixed bridge can only be removed by a dentist.
An implant bridge attaches artificial teeth directly to the jaw or under the gum tissue. Depending on which type of bridge your dentist recommends, its success depends on its foundation. So it’s very important to keep your remaining teeth healthy and strong.
While bridges can last a lifetime, they do sometimes come loose or fall out. The most important step you can take to ensure the longevity of your bridge is to practice good oral hygiene. A bridge can lose its support if the teeth or bone holding it in place are damaged by dental disease. Keep your gums and teeth healthy by Brushing with fluoride toothpaste twice a day and flossing daily. Also see your dentist and hygienist regularly for checkups and professional cleanings.
The cost varies based on the type of bridge selected. Dental insurance generally pay a percentage of the fee depending on the individual plan. Visit FairHealthConsumer.com to learn more about the cost of Dental Bridge in your area.
No, actually it should make eating easier since missing teeth are replaced with a dental bridge. We recommend that you eat soft foods that have been cut into small pieces until you get used to your bridge.
Missing teeth can cause difficulty in speaking. Since bridges replace missing teeth, wearing one with the anterior teeth in their proper relationship will help you speak properly.
I love my dentist and the staff. They have always been very professional and thorough. NO complains from me!!
