You may need to replace a single tooth or two or more teeth that are adjacent to one another. If you are not a candidate for dental implants and are not interested in wearing dentures, talk to Dr. Raju Dhariwal about a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a permanent tooth replacement that will help maintain your smile and your oral health. To learn more about dental bridges in Elk Grove, California, call Camden Dental Care at 916-686-2888 to meet with our dentist.
A dental bridge can be an excellent way to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth in a row. A bridge is fixed securely in your mouth so that it cannot be removed, allowing you to use it for normal oral function. The bridge is kept in place by two dental crowns that are crafted to fit in your mouth and blend in with your smile. The crowns are placed over the teeth next to the site of the missing tooth, providing a strong anchor for the bridge so that it does not shift or loosen. A dental bridge can usually be placed in just two visits to our office, and it can last for many years with proper at-home care and regular dental visits.
Our dentist may suggest that you receive a dental bridge to:
- Restore your speaking, eating and chewing abilities
- Alleviate excess stress on your bite
- Improve your facial shape and volume
- Replace a removable partial denture
- Prevent your remaining natural teeth from shifting
- Enhance your smile’s appearance
Our dentist can go over the benefits of dental bridges with you and help you decide if it is the right restorative option for your smile. Simply give us a call to schedule your consultation!
