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'm welcomed every time I come in the door. Staff is very helpful and eager to satisfy the objective. Dentist and assistant work harmoniously to get the procedure accomplished as efficient and accurate as possible, with minimal discomfort to me. I congratulate the whole team for their work.
    The facility is wonderful also. Very clean and well thought out. Modern computerized systems. LCD TV's on the ceiling to keep my mind off procedure..... all in all I'm very satisfied...
    Only down side is limited parking due to neighboring businesses.

    I've been going for treatments to this location for about 8 months now and I still feel great about everyone I come in contact with.
    Thomas is the doctor who is taking care of my teeth and his attention to detail and customer care has inspired me to add to my previous post.
    I feel very satisfied with the work he performed after my mouth wakes up and I can feel the results of his work.
    I still have much work to be done so I know I can always return with the expectation of excellence... Thank you guys.

  • I needed to get my permanent brace fixed and Kyle Parkway was the only place that was willing to look at the brace and not immediately tell me that the brace needed to be replaced. I was able to be seen the same day. The front office was super friendly and helpful, the dentist is friendly, clear and gentle. He checked out my brace, so no damage and suggested to just fix the adhesive and I was out in no-time. The office itself is beautiful! I was looking for a new dentist close to home and Kyle Parkway is definitely the place where I will go from now on.

  • Very friendly and through. Was able to fill out paperwork online so the day of the appointment I checked in and just waited to be called. I arrived early and was in a room 10 minutes before my scheduled appointment time. Assistants explained each process before starting as well as explaining what they could see. Dr D was friendly, soft spoken and calm. There was a break down of payment for procedures and payment options. Also scheduling follow up appointment was easy. Offices were nice and clean with tv screens on the ceiling so you could watch Netflix while being worked on.

  • I love this office. All staff were very friendly and made you feel right at home. The staff were also very professional. The gray sofas were very comfortable and the office was clean. You did not have to wait for a long time. Dr. Z was excellent and explained the procedure perfectly. They do not accept my insurance, but I am going back anyway. I highly recommend Kyle Parkway Dentistry.

  • They are great! The staff makes you feel at ease. The hygienist was VERY gentle as I have sensitive teeth and gums. Got to catch up on my Netflix too! The dentist is very kind as well. I think I found my new dentist!

  • When our dentist retired after 35+ years with him, had to find a new dentist and Kyle Parkway Dentistry was recommended to me by a friend. Made an appointment with a cracked tooth on Friday for following Monday and was actually called and seen earlier, on Saturday. Office and staff was very nice and felt welcomed. Exam and cleaning was great and everything was explained in a clear way. Very warm environment and liked watching TV while laying down! I think I made a good choice!

  • I needed to be seen as a new patient for routine exam and cleaning. Initially, I was going to have to wait a week for my appointment but staff called and said I could be seen that same day. I was taken back almost immediately. Vanessa was very friendly and knowledgeable and made sure I was comfortable. I was seen by Dr. McConnel. He apologized for the wait (I did have to wait a little but Vanessa turned on Netflix for me so I really didn’t mind! I was not in a hurry). They were both very friendly and He explained the x rays and everything thoroughly. He offered options to improve some issues I have but was not pushy about getting anything scheduled immediately. I had a good experience and would recommend.
