If you ask “Am I a Dental Bridge Candidate?”, we invite you to schedule a consultation at Dr. Clint Newman’s Nashville based cosmetic dentistry practice.
Candidates for Dental Bridges
Dental bridges are suitable for most people who suffer from one or more missing teeth. Traditional dental bridges treatment does not require surgery so it safe for many patients. Candidates for dental bridges include those who:
- Are missing one or more teeth: Dental bridges are a great option to replace one or more missing teeth, especially when not enough teeth are missing to require dentures.
- Are not healthy enough for surgery: Though dental bridges can be paired with surgically placed dental implants, traditional dental bridge treatment does not require surgery.
- Do not want to undergo dental implant surgery: Dental bridge treatment is a great option for those who do not wish to undergo dental implant surgery for whatever reason. Dental bridge treatment allows the benefits of tooth replacement without the surgery, long healing time, or high costs of dental implant treatment.
- Want fast tooth replacement: Dental bridge treatment can be completed in as little as two dental visits over a short period of time, whereas dental implant treatment is a long process requiring multiple appointments and six months or more to complete treatment.
The Benefits of Replacing Missing Teeth with Dental Bridges
Dental bridges offer many benefits. Replacing missing teeth can improve the cosmetics of your smile as well as dental function, allowing you to comfortably and easily eat the foods you love. Replacing missing teeth with dental bridges can also prevent the remaining teeth from shifting, which can lead to malocclusion and bone loss. Dental bridges also offer the benefit of long term tooth replacement. With proper care, dental bridges can last over 15 years. You can help prolong the life of your dental bridges by practicing proper oral hygiene and keeping your mouth healthy.
