If you are missing teeth, there’s a good chance that you could benefit from a dental bridge. An implant-supported bridge is even better.
And the best place to go for your new bridge in our area is New Albany Implants. Our doctors place hundreds of implants and restore hundreds of smiles every year at our New Albany, IN office.
You can call 888-469-3982 to make an appointment. In the meantime, we are sharing some of the most common questions we receive about dental bridges.
What Is A Bridge?
Dental bridges are teeth replacements. For people who have missing teeth, bridges can fill the gaps between their remaining teeth. This can restore the confidence in their smiles. It also allows people to speak naturally and normally again.
What Could Happen If I Don’t Replace My Missing Teeth?
Several things, but we’ll stick to some of the most common problems we have seen in our time as dental professionals. The most obvious is the effect it can have on your smile, which can affect your confidence as well. When someone has lost teeth, they may feel embarrassed about it. That can affect how they interact with people in personal and professional situations.
Physically, eating is more difficult when you are missing teeth. Biting and chewing are more challenging. Plus, the forces caused by eating can lead teeth to drift, changing your smile and your bite.
At the same time, a bigger problem is developing where you won’t see it. Because of your missing teeth, you are likely losing bone in your jaw. This is concerning because it can lead to further tooth loss down the line. That, in turn, can cause you to look older than you really are.
Why Should I Get Dental Implants With A Bridge?
Here’s why. Dental implants replace the roots of your missing teeth. That makes your implants a stable support system for your bridge. With implants, you can trust that your bridge will remain stable and strong.
Will My Smile Look Natural?
It will if you come to New Albany Implants. We make zirconium bridges for our patients. Zirconium matches the color of natural teeth, so your smile will look as good as new. To ensure the quality of your bridge, we have our own in-office dental lab.
Will I Be Able To Eat What I Want?
Yes, you will be able to eat anything you’d like with an implant-supported bridge. The implant allows you to generate more power in each bite and chew, so you can eat the same foods you could with a full set of healthy teeth.
How Can I Get A Bridge?
Start by scheduling a consultation with our own Dr. Ron Receuver. He has decades of experience placing implant and replacing missing teeth. He has a better than 98 percent success rate with the implants he places, and that’s why we offer a lifetime warranty on the implants placed at our office.
