Tooth Restoration: Dental Implants And Dental Bridges

Tooth Restoration: Dental Implants And Dental Bridges

When our patients ask us about tooth restoration, we usually tell them about fixed (or ‘traditional’) dental bridges or tooth implants. A dental bridge is an artificial tooth that replaces a missing tooth. The false tooth (called a ‘pontic’) is fused to porcelain crowns on either side of the missing tooth.

Tooth replacement has been a highly requested procedure at our dental practice. Patients from the Scottsdale area and Mesa area have expressed concern about tooth replacement for many years. Most questions have to do with the strength of the tooth replacement and durability.

Dental implants are also popular in Phoenix. A dental implant consists of a titanium post surgically inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. The post integrates with the bone to provide a stable foundation for the replacement tooth.

After it has bonded with the bone (it usually takes three to six months), a smaller post is attached. This post extends above the gum line. The artificial tooth (crown) is then attached. The entire process takes several months, but consistently yields terrific results for tooth restoration patients.

Both smile restoration options preserve or restore facial contour and allow you to talk and eat normally. Tooth replacements prevent adjoining teeth from gradually shifting and can help correct bite problems, also.

Tooth implants and dental bridges can replace one or more missing teeth. Many Phoenix area dental patients have been treated successfully with these tooth restoration alternatives.
