General Dentistry Office In Lakewood Offers Dental Bridges

Missing teeth can be caused by injury or trauma, advanced gum disease, decay and other conditions. Greg DeVor, DDS, offers exceptional general dentistry services and options for tooth replacement that will restore your smile and help you achieve optimal oral health.

What Is A Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge consists of a prosthetic tooth and crowns that attach to the adjoining teeth on each side of the gap where you're missing a tooth or teeth. There are several different types of dental bridges. Dr. DeVor thoroughly examines your teeth and discusses available treatment options with you.

Dental Bridge Benefits

Patients who suffer from missing teeth often have difficulty eating or speaking and are self-conscious about smiling. Dental bridges are an affordable treatment option that can help to repair all these issues. Bridges are typically made of strong, durable porcelain and metal and can last up to 15 years or more. Dental bridges also provide additional benefits that can:
  • Improve your oral health
  • Give you a beautiful, natural-looking smile
  • Increase your confidence
  • Allow you to eat and speak properly again
  • Evenly distribute biting forces, which can prevent other teeth from breaking or cracking
  • Prevent remaining teeth from shifting
  • Help maintain your facial structure

Dental Bridge Maintenance

Eating a healthy diet, practicing good oral hygiene by brushing twice a day, flossing daily and using an antiseptic mouthwash should keep your bridge in good shape and help it last a long time. Regular visits to the dentist for checkups and dental cleanings are also essential to maintain a healthy mouth.

Alternative Tooth Replacement Options

Dental implants and implant bridges are also strong, long-lasting solutions for replacing missing teeth. Implants involve placing a titanium post that fuses with your jawbone to replace the roots of your missing tooth. When healing is complete, a custom-made crown or bridge is permanently placed on top of the implant. Dr. DeVor will advise you on the tooth replacement option that best fits your needs.
