When it comes to tooth restoration, dentistry has come a long way. Still, if you are only missing a few teeth and no options fit, dental implants may seem like a bit much for just two or three teeth; no one wants to get dentures or partials if they do not have to. That’s when you should come to Sunset Valley Dental in Woodstock, VT, and ask about our options for dental bridges. Dental bridges are still widely used to replace missing teeth when a patient does not wish to get implants and is not ready for a partial denture.
Dental bridges come in many types and can be the compromise you seek when you want to get your smile back without many headaches and hassles. We even have options that combine with other treatments, so we can also handle that if you need a more extensive solution. The important thing is to find the option that is right for you.
Deciding what type of dental solution to use for tooth loss is a big decision, but our dentists will help you throughout the process. Dental bridges can restore from one to four missing teeth and look natural. The bridge is attached to at least one existing tooth and “bridges” the gap of the missing teeth.
As a dental appliance, the bridge attaches to the teeth and looks as realistic as possible. It is also quite durable and, over time, will feel natural inside the mouth. A dental bridge is recommended for patients who want a reliable solution to missing teeth that is more affordable than dental implants but more durable than a partial denture. A bridge can easily be removed and modified if needed but can last over a decade if maintained properly without any accidents or damage.
