Dental Bridges – Fort Valley, GA

Replace Several Lost Teeth with One Restoration

It is estimated that 140 million people have lost at least one tooth. Fortunately, Dr. Marable can replace one or several sequential missing teeth with a comfortable and incredibly lifelike dental bridge. These appliances can restore a smile’s appearance and more evenly distribute chewing pressure while preventing dental drift, which can save teeth from injuries and infections. Here’s a brief guide to dental bridges, but feel free to contact our office if you have any questions.

Why Choose Fantastic Smiles for Dental Bridges?

What Is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is one or more sequential artificial teeth held in place by either crowns or dental implants on either side. These appliances are used to replace one to three missing teeth in a row, and almost anyone can be a good candidate as long as they have healthy gums, teeth, and jaws. Dental bridges can be made from high-quality ceramic or porcelain materials, allowing them to seamlessly blend in with the rest of your smile.

Types of Dental Bridges

The first step to getting a dental bridge is to have a consultation with Dr. Marable. During this visit, he will inspect your mouth and discuss your needs and goals with you so he can develop an appropriate treatment plan. Based on his findings, he may recommend either a traditional dental bridge supported by crowns or an implant bridge supported by dental implants.

Traditional Dental Bridge

A traditional dental bridge is one or several artificial teeth strung between two dental crowns intended to be placed on the healthy teeth on either side of the empty space in your smile. These bridges can beautifully restore your grin while allowing you to chew many foods normally.

Implant Bridge

Rather than being anchored with crowns placed on healthy teeth, implant bridges are secured with dental implants surgically placed in the jawbone. This creates a more stable hold that allows the patient to chew more confidently, and these bridges do not require healthy teeth to be altered to support crowns.

The Benefits of Getting a Dental Bridge

Dentists recommend replacing lost teeth as soon as possible to prevent issues like dental drift, gum disease, and tooth injuries due to uneven chewing pressure. These problems can make it difficult to eat and speak confidently while diminishing your confidence and self-image. Dental bridges can address these issues by replacing lost teeth and helping the remaining ones stay in place, preserving the patient’s appearance and overall health. If you’re interested in receiving a dental bridge, schedule a consultation at our office to discuss your options.
