When might a West Ashley area patient be a candidate for bridges for teeth at their local dentist?

A smile can be negatively altered due to the loss of a natural tooth. This can be troublesome for patients of all ages. However, it doesn’t mean that a patient has to live with an imperfect smile. In fact, addressing the problem as soon as possible can help in maintaining the smile’s alignment. When teeth are missing, the existing teeth may shift out of place. This requires orthodontics and other procedures to fix, so patients who have lost a natural tooth should seek assistance as soon as they can for their missing teeth.

West Ashley Dentist - Candidate for bridges for teeth

There are several solutions available for patients from a West Ashley area dentist such as Dr. Greenberg of Mouth Carolina Dentistry, PA. Bridges for teeth are a common solution. This restoration uses the surrounding teeth to support it and includes a false tooth called a pontic. This fills the space and maintains the aesthetic appearance of one’s smile. Additionally, patients may also consider partial dentures or dental implants. Partial dentures are metal and plastic apparatuses that snap into the dental arch and replace the lost tooth or teeth. A dental implant is a metal post that Dr. Greenberg would surgically place into the jawbone as a more permanent solution. Many patients who are seeking a fast, affordable, and non-invasive solution often consider dental bridges.

Before patients have dental bridges created for their smiles, they must find out if they are proper candidates. Most patients are able to have dental bridges placed. They must have sufficient enamel and support on the surrounding teeth, and must have overall healthy smiles free from gum disease and extensive tooth decay.

Bridges for teeth are often the solution of choice for patients considering alternatives to short-term, removable restorations such as partial dentures and more affordable treatments than dental implants. Bridges are a wonderful “middle ground” for patients who want to maintain their beautiful smile but are on a budget. Bridges can last for ten years or longer with proper care. Dr. Greenberg, of Mouth Carolina Dentistry, PA, will educate his patients on the ways in which they can care for their bridge.
