Dental Bridges Stabilize Your Teeth and Gums
Ask Our Experienced Family Dentists About Dental Bridges
Losing a tooth as an adult can end up having long-term ramifications on your oral health if it is not quickly addressed. Not taking care of missing teeth can lead to issues for your gums, jawbones, and even your other teeth. When you have lost a tooth, you should consult with one of the experienced family dentists at Veltri, Day & Veltri, to see if dental bridges are right for you! Dental bridges can prevent further damage to your oral health after losing a tooth, and can allow you to continue to smile and eat like you normally would. For more information on dental bridges, or to schedule an appointment, call our dental office at (304) 622-8001, or contact us online today.
What Are Dental Bridges?
A dental bridge is a set of typically three new teeth, that form a “bridge” to keep the rest of your teeth in place. The two main types of dental bridges are fixed bridges and implant-supported bridges. Fixed bridges use your natural teeth on both sides of the missing tooth to create natural implants for the bridge. These teeth are both reduced in order to accommodate the bridge, which will be placed over the reduced teeth and the gap. Implant-supported bridges, on the other hand, are similar to fixed bridges, except they replace reduced teeth with implants. A consultation with one of the experienced family dentists at Veltri, Day & Veltri can help you to determine which one of these procedures is better for your oral health, or if dental bridges are right for you.
