Missing teeth can jeopardize your smile appearance as well as your oral health. For countless reasons, it is important to find a replacement solution. At Gramercy Dental Center, we are committed to providing top quality restorations for those with missing teeth. We offer custom dental bridges for patients who have one or a few missing teeth in a row. A bridge consists of a prosthetic tooth or teeth that are anchored on either side. In many cases, the bridge is secured to adjoining teeth with the use of dental crowns. However, dental implants also make an excellent support system for dental bridges.
By using cosmetic dentistry to bridge the gap of your missing teeth, we can help you regain your lost teeth as well as your lost confidence. We use dental bridges that are made of premium quality materials, including those that replicate the feel, function and appearance of natural teeth. No one will ever know you have prosthetic teeth!
Drawbacks of Missing Teeth
While it is easy to realize the aesthetic consequences of a missing tooth, there are less obvious drawbacks that need to be understood as well. When a tooth is not replaced in a timely manner, the neighboring teeth will drift toward the open space. This can cause crooked teeth as well as bite misalignment, which can affect your jaw health. It can also create tight spaces in your smile that are difficult to keep clean.
Bone loss is also a concern with missing teeth. If the underlying jaw bone is not stimulated by a tooth root, the bone no longer regenerates and begins to atrophy over time. This process occurs regardless of how many teeth you’ve lost or where the gap is within your smile. Dental implants are the only way to preserve healthy bone structure after missing teeth.
At Gramercy Dental Center, we give patients the VIP treatment. This means we will provide state-of-the-art dental services while supporting your comfort and convenience at every step. When it comes to getting a dental bridge, we allow patients to take an active role in the process. After all, they are gaining new teeth and making a major improvement within their smile.
