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 was passing through town and needed a quick consultation and a minor repair. I received a prompt appointment and the location is easy to find with excellent facilities. I wish the team well for the future.

  • All office staff were very pleasant. The office was aesthetically pleasing and relaxing. Macy, the dental assistant, was thorough, precise with the X-rays and pleasant to speak to. She explained everything she was doing so I felt comfortable. They have amazing technology. Dr. Dholariya actually performed my cleaning. I have not experienced such a gentle, yet thorough cleaning...in fact, I almost fell asleep during the cleaning (no meds administered)! Dr. Dholariya made sure to answer all of my questions and did not make me feel rushed. I encountered Tasha at check-out. She was very kind as well and thorough. I had a partial charge for my X-rays I was not expecting but that was a function of my insurance only paying 80%. I was okay with paying it because they did a 180 degree dental scan as well as photographs inside my mouth and bite wing X-rays. You can see the images on a TV as you relax in the dental chair. I found that quite interesting. I would rather be thoroughly checked out and have that piece of mind than skimp on technology and regret it later. I highly recommend Dr. Dholariya and Kyle Parkway Dentistry.

  • I have been receiving care here for a few years now and really am pleased with every aspect of this office. My last visit was just as pleasant as ever, if not more. I know dental work can be hard for some to receive and for me it’s the local anesthetic (mouth shot). The assistant helping (Macy?) during my appointment was kind enough to rub my arm as a distraction. It was very comforting and did well to take my attention off the shots going into my mouth! Sweet people throughout the office, love you guys!!!

  • Dr. Dholariya And Cecily are just Excellent. Almost no wait time even though this was a last minute appointment. Friendly bedside manner during the cleaning (which he doesn't hand off to a hygienist/assistant). Explained the issues well and both he and his xray assistant were conscious of insurance covering a full panel. So nice to see they have my back instead of randomly doing treatments outside of what's covered. No surprise bills, yay! 10/10 would go highly recommend them! I have tried others in the area and they don't even compare. Others in this area are not serving the people's best interest where Dr. Dholariya does! Thank you all for treating my husband and I so well!

    Hillz A.
  • I had another great experience at Kyle Parkway Dentistry. They made me so comfortable. When I showed signs of discomfort. They quickly stopped the procedure, offered options and brought me back to 100% comfort before going on with the process. They were very attentive and noted signs of pain without me having to complain. The patient teaching was detailed yet comprehensible. Thank you so much for making my procedure as pleasant as possible.

  • Very professional; they did a great job despite having a 2.5 year old of mine they had to contend with. They were very friendly, accomodating and straightforward.

    Sean C.
  • I came to Kyle Parkway Dentistry for a second opinion and am very happy about that decision. Dr. Zaramella was honest about the treatment I really needed; she saved 3 of my teeth from over treatment, she saved me from the anxiety of getting those treatments, and she saved me thousands of dollars. Also, the dental assistants and office personnel were friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. I am so appreciative of everyone I interacted with, and am actually looking forward to maintaining my teeth, at Kyle Parkway Dental.
