Missing Teeth? We Can Help!

Dental bridges and partial dentures are common ways to replace missing teeth in adults. If teeth that have been lost are not replaced, the remaining teeth can tip, drift, or extrude into the empty spaces, causing both aesthetic and functional problems within your mouth. If you have missing teeth, visit a doctor for dental bridges and partials to determine if these options are right for you.

Replace Missing Teeth with a Dental Bridge in Laurel, MD

A dental bridge is a tooth restoration option commonly utilized to replace missing teeth. Bridges are comprised of crown units which are fused together and then bonded into place to deliver a permanent, natural looking restoration. If you would like to replace missing teeth, schedule a consultation with Laurel Laser Dentistry for a dental bridge in Laurel, MD. The benefits of a dental bridge include:

  • Replace missing teeth
  • Permanent, secure restoration
  • Natural appearance
  • Restored chewing function
  • Maintains the spacing of the surrounding teeth

The Placement of a Dental Bridge in Laurel, MD

For the replacement of a single tooth, your dental bridge will consist of three crown units. The middle unit replaces your lost tooth while the two crowns on either end of a bridge serve as anchors. Therefore, in your initial visit, we will reshape the teeth that surround the gap to accommodate crowns. An impression is then taken and sent to a special dental lab for the fabrication of your dental bridge. The process takes approximately three weeks.

When you return to our office for your final visit, we will check the appearance of your gum tissues and fit of your bridge and then permanently bond it into place.

A Dental Bridge for the Loss of Multiple Teeth

A dental bridge can also be use to replace missing teeth when more than one tooth is lost. For multiple tooth loss, additional crown units are added to the bridge and the placement method is identical. The end crown units are anchored to the teeth that surround the gap. You may, however, have the option to secure your bridge with dental implants instead of anchoring the crown units to your natural, healthy teeth. Dental implants also offer bone health benefits not afforded by traditional bridge placement. We will discuss all of your options with you so that you can make an informed decision.

It is extremely important to replace missing teeth as soon as possible. To schedule your consultation for a dental bridge, contact Laurel Laser Dentistry in Laurel, MD today.
