Missing teeth replacement

Dental bridges are a restorative dental treatment which replace one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge is fixed to supporting teeth, known as abutments, which are located on one or both sides of the missing teeth. A dental bridge is intended as a permanent solution to missing teeth, and they should not be confused with dentures. The false teeth used in a dental bridge are called pontics. These teeth can be made from a number of materials. Although in common practice, they are usually made from alloys, ceramic or porcelain. For the bridge to hold, your dentist will need to examine the abutment teeth to ensure they are strong enough to act as anchors. There are various types of dental bridges; however, traditional bridges are the most common. A crown is attached to either the abutment or a dental implant. This holds the pontic in place and fills the gap where teeth are missing.

Dental Bridge 

Replace missing tooth

 

As a bridge replaces missing teeth, there are a number of clear benefits. Cosmetically, a bridge will restore your smile and help boost confidence. Missing teeth affect speech, which can be addressed through having a dental bridge fill the gap. Eating with gaps between the teeth is much more difficult. When you have a bridge, full function is restored to your teeth.

Other benefits of a bridge are less obvious, however. When teeth are missing, it affects the distribution of your bite. By restoring missing teeth, your bite is readjusted with the proper force distribution. The longer teeth are missing; the more likely it is that surrounding teeth will begin to drift. This condition can affect the shape and function of your mouth.

If you have missing teeth, you may be a good candidate for a dental bridge. Contact Kyle Parkway Dentistry today to arrange an appointment and we can assess your needs.

  • I've always been really uncomfortable around dentists, and hadn't been to one in four to five years following a bad experience with a dentist in my teens. This was a great experience and I'm definitely more comfortable with going back for further treatment. They were incredibly professional and answered all my questions, and were able to offer suggestions for some of my difficulties. 10/10 will definitely go again.

  • I was quite apprehensive about having to go to the dentist. I have been diabetic for 30+ years and have a mouth full of problems. I made my first appointment with Kyle Pkwy in June of 2017. Due to all kinds of personal health and family problems I cancelled a few times. The staff was always understanding and courteous. So finally came a time when things calmed down and I was able to make and keep an appointment. I was greeted in a very timely manner and checked in. The waiting area is very calming. I was called back in a very timely manner and things were explained to me and each and every person that I dealt with built a reassuring rapport with me. Even going as far as asking me what I like to watch on TV. When I laid back the television had been set to a program of my liking. The exam was painless and again everything was explained to me in language that I can understand. I was then given options as to what I wanted to proceed with as far as all the work needed. From the time I got there until the time I left I felt as if I were the only patient they were attending to. Very clean, calming environment. And very attentive personal.
