In the past, a missing tooth was a troubling dental issue as there were only a handful of ways to address the situation. Today, however, is a different story. Those who have a missing tooth now have a variety of treatment options to choose from. One of the more popular options today is the use of dental bridges.
Buckhead Esthetic Dentistry offers patients access to different types of dental bridges:
Fixed Dental Bridge
Also known as the “traditional” option, fixed dental bridges are the most commonly used solution. This type of dental bridge requires porcelain crowns to be placed over two healthy teeth. These teeth are then used as an anchor for the false tooth. In some cases, a dental bridge may also be anchored by a dental implant.
We are able to offer patients both types of fixed dental bridges. To find out which one is the better fit for your situation, Dr. Jolanda Warren, a “Top Cosmetic Dentist in Atlanta”, will assess the condition of your teeth. You will be informed of all your options as well as the accompanying costs to help you make an informed decision.
Removable Dental Bridge
A removable dental bridge works exactly as its name implies. The dental bridge is removable, allowing you to preserve its integrity, especially when eating certain types of food. Removable dental bridges, however, are often used as a temporary solution or a placeholder until the materials for the actual dental treatment are ready.
Consult Dr. Warren Today
Apart from a missing tooth being an aesthetic issue, the lack of a tooth or several teeth can cause surrounding teeth to become more susceptible to everyday wear and tear. With that in mind, be sure to address any missing teeth as soon as possible.
