Dental care providers and patients alike have known for ages that is important to replace missing teeth. However, over the years, how we address tooth loss has advanced significantly. For example, modern dentures and bridges not only fill in the gaps left by missing teeth, but also restore your youthful and attractive appearance. For Green Plaza Dental patients throughout Calgary, dental bridges are a customizable and highly effective solution that helps correct many of the health concerns surrounding tooth loss.
A dental bridge in Calgary involves one or more replacement teeth. The prosthetics are called pontics, which are dental appliances designed to mimic the size, shape, and appearance of the missing teeth. Pontics are bordered by natural-looking crowns that are created to look like the natural teeth adjacent to the gap in your smile. They are attached to these abutment teeth to stabilize the bridge when you bite and chew. Once placed, your dental bridge will restore your mouth function as well as reestablish your beautiful, healthy smile.
A dental bridge at Green Plaza Dental can successfully rebuild your smile. In addition, for many people, a tooth bridge can do even more with the assistance of dental implants. By placing one or multiple implant posts for support instead of abutment teeth, an implant-supported bridge in Calgary replaces lost teeth and missing roots. Replacing the roots that once stimulated the jawbone helps ensure your facial bone will be healthy and strong for life.
If you are missing a single tooth, or several teeth, a dental bridge or implant-supported bridge may be the right tooth replacement solution for you.
