Are you missing one or more teeth? Try a dental bridge. A bridge is a dental restoration that replaces one to four consecutive lost teeth. Bridges renew the appearance and function of patients’ smiles with false teeth. Adjacent teeth or implants may also secure dental bridges. At Sea of Pearls Dental Boutique, Dr. Daniela Lemoine helps patients restore their smiles with dental bridge treatment in East Cobb, GA. She works with patients individually to find the proper restoration to meet their oral health goals.
Traditional vs. Implant-Secured Bridges
Dental bridges typically require support from prepared adjacent natural teeth. Tooth crowns cover these prepared teeth to secure the bridge in place. However, tooth preparation permanently changes the appearance of natural teeth. Traditional bridges may also not restore the full bite function. Dr. Lemoine works with local specialists that surgically place dental implants.
Patients can receive implant-supported dental bridges, which last longer than traditional options. Implant-secured bridges last longer than traditional bridges and enable patients to eat comfortably. Filling the gap left by missing teeth adds structure to the face and can alleviate speech issues.
Dental Bridge Treatment in East Cobb, GA
Dr. Lemoine begins dental bridge treatment by ensuring that patients have good oral health. Patients who want implant-supported bridges need enough bone tissue to support them. Dr. Lemoine will recommend bone grafting to create proper support for the implants. She will also take digital scans and impressions of the smile to create the bridge. Dr. Lemoine sends these dental scans to a local lab that will create the dental bridge prosthetic.
Additionally, Dr. Lemoine will refer patients who want implants to a local specialist. The oral surgeon will place the implant posts into the jawbone. Once the implants heal, Dr. Lemoine will secure the permanent bridge.
