Manage The Empty Spaces From Missing One to Three Teeth

A dental bridge enhances both the look and function of your mouth by seamlessly filling empty spaces with a prosthetic tooth anchored by dental implants, existing teeth, or both. Often referred to as a ‘fixed partial denture,’ these bridges are securely attached and do not need to be removed for sleeping or cleaning. Addressing tooth gaps is essential not only for maintaining a pleasing appearance but also for supporting overall oral health. It helps prevent issues like speech difficulties, challenges in chewing, and the shifting of surrounding teeth.

Long-term Advantages of Dental Bridges

Missing teeth can make us self-conscious and uncomfortable. A dental bridge not only restores your smile but also offers long-term benefits for your remaining teeth and overall oral health. Advantages of a dental bridge include:

Comfort

This immediate advantage has a direct impact on our well-being. Regain a natural look and sensation, smile and eat confidently, and restore the beloved smile you once had. Missing teeth can lead to discomfort and challenges in speaking and eating. Dental bridges offer a durable solution, providing relief from the discomfort caused by missing teeth for over ten years with proper care.

Tooth health

The interdependence of your teeth and their role in maintaining facial structure are crucial. When teeth are missing, it can disrupt your bite and create gaps that allow other teeth to shift. However, a dental bridge effectively prevents tooth shifting, reducing the risk of decay, periodontal disease, jaw pain, and TMJ disorders caused by misaligned teeth.

Bone health

Maintaining healthy and stable teeth promotes the well-being of your jawbones. When our dental health deteriorates, it negatively impacts the bones and tissues that provide support to our teeth. By stabilizing your dental health through a dental bridge, you can effectively slow down the rate of bone loss associated with missing teeth.

The Cost Of A Dental Bridge in Oakdale

Determining the cost of a dental bridge involves several factors, including:

  • The type of bridge and the materials used in its fabrication.
  • The number of missing teeth that need to be replaced.
  • The location and complexity of the procedure.
  • The condition of the teeth adjacent to the gap.
  • The necessary supplies and equipment for your specific treatment.

It’s essential to note that providing an accurate quote over the phone is not possible for any dental practice. Your dental needs are unique, just like your smile. To obtain precise information about treatment options and an accurate cost estimate, it is important to consult with a dentist and undergo an oral examination. If you have dental insurance, we can provide you with a quote to submit to them, enabling you to determine your out-of-pocket expenses before making a decision.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dental bridges can last anywhere from 5 to 15 years or even longer with proper care and maintenance. However, the longevity of a dental bridge depends on various factors, including oral hygiene practices, the materials used, and individual habits.

The process of getting a dental bridge typically involves local anesthesia, so you shouldn’t feel pain during the procedure. However, it is common to experience some mild discomfort or sensitivity after the placement, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

Dental bridges are designed to restore normal function, allowing you to speak and eat comfortably. While it may take a short adjustment period to get used to the bridge, most people find that their ability to speak and eat improves significantly after getting a dental bridge.

Dental bridges can be customized to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth, ensuring a natural-looking appearance. Skilled dentists strive to create bridges that seamlessly blend with your existing teeth, making them hardly noticeable.

There are alternative options for replacing missing teeth, such as dental implants and removable partial dentures. Dental implants are surgically placed artificial tooth roots that provide a durable and long-lasting solution. Removable partial dentures are removable appliances that replace missing teeth but may not offer the same stability as dental bridges or implants. The most suitable option for you will depend on various factors, including your oral health, preferences, and budget. Consulting with a dentist will help determine the best alternative for your specific situation.

My husband had a great experience here. He has been to many dental offices and has always had pain during the procedure. Thanks to Dr. Anderson and Shayla he felt nothing at all through both an extraction and a root canal. Our family would very much recommend these guys and will always be receiving our dental work here!

Our family made the switch to All Family Dental when the dental office that we had been going to for over 20 years said that the next available appointment was 10 months away! Actually, they did us a favor because we couldn’t be happier with All Family Dental. Not only are they very accommodating with appointment times, but the entire staff is personable and technically top notch!

Dr. Kevin and his assistant Sara were absolutely fantastic. I have never had the personable service and feeling like my best interests were the most important. I have found my forever dentist. I will definitely be sending people I care about there!

I wanted to share the incredible experience I had at All Family Dental today. Elizabeth was my dental hygienist. She has such personal and professional chairside manners. She makes me feel very welcome from the minute I sit down. She tells me exactly what she will be doing so there are no surprises. At this appointment, she needed to share with me that I brush my teeth too hard. However, rather then accusing me of brushing incorrectly, she walked me through a series of questions that allowed me to determine I could change my brushing technique and preserve my pearly whites even longer. Thanks, Elizabeth, you're a dental ROCK STAR!

Dr Anderson, Dr Tim and the staff Shayla, Marlena, Mary, Tara, Melanie, are VERY professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate. I’ve been coming here for a year now and every time I come in they know me by name - very impressive. That’s the high level of attention to detail they provide. Walking into All Family Dental gives me a friendly feeling of warmth, comfort, and confidence that I am right were I want to be for my dental work. I would recommend All Family Dental to any and all of my friends and family. I consider myself very fortunate that I found such a solid dental practice with such wonderful people. You will too!
