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.

  • Let it be known, I HATE going to the dentist, but Kyle Pkwy has my business for life. Very clean!
    The techs are super friendly and Dr D could not have been more caring. I get really anxious at dentist offices, but their setup is great. Plenty of TVs to distract oneself. I cannot recommend this dentist's office enough!

  • Everyone in the office was extremely nice. Felt very confidante with their safety protocols and cleanliness of the office. Felt like my exam was thorough but done in an extremely timely manner. And got a plan together to repair my front tooth crown, that fit my budget and time frame. Look forward to getting my new crown and will definitely keep them for my regular cleanings.

  • I had an amazing experience today at Kyle Parkway Denistry. The office was very beautiful and the staff was welcoming. The check in process was fast and easy. Although I am not the most comfortable at the Denist’s office, I had a great visit and thorough cleaning. I immediately booked my next appointment and will be booking my family members in the near future. I highly recommend this office and Dr. Dholariya!

  • positive review 

    First of all I have anxiety issues & am terrified of dentists. But as I was called to the back the dental assistant (Cecily) made me feel right @ ease. Normally X-rays are very uncomfortable but the technique they used was easy & quick. Dr Dholariya explained to me what my options were on what I needed done and would pretty much walk me through the process as we go along. Definitely would recommend this practice!

  • Dr McConnell communicates well & gives me all the treatment options. Paul, hygienist, makes me feel comfortable for cleanings and so friendly! Front desk super quick and nice. Plus text reminders make it easy!

  • 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.
