-- A gap in your teeth can feel like a canyon-huge and noticeable. Tooth loss usually occurs unexpectedly, especially if it's due to dental trauma. Unless root canal therapy can save the tooth, a tooth infection is also a reason a patient may need to get a tooth extracted.
"When it comes to tooth loss, no one feels like a winner. To boost a patient's confidence and oral health, dentists are able to replace a tooth with a prosthetic dental piece. Some popular restorative treatments include dentures and dental bridges," explains Dr. Wyckoff.
With one dental bridge, two problems will be solved.
First, a dental bridge will fill the gap left behind in your mouth, which will improve your chewing function, speech and esthetic look.
Second, a dental bridge will stop neighboring teeth from shifting or rotating to the affected area. Without replacing a tooth, ultimately, other teeth will gravitate towards the space, causing further problems.
Dental bridges work by anchoring to the teeth neighboring the open spaces. Dr. Wyckoff will need to file down the neighboring teeth to accommodate for the crown going over it. Dental bridge placement shouldn't cause any discomfort.
A bridge can also be anchored to dental implants. Whether a bridge is attached to natural teeth, implants or a combination of implants and teeth, the dental prosthetic will remain stable.
It's important to communicate with your dentist regarding any concerns or questions you will have before receiving treatment.
Do you think a dental bridge will "bridge" the gap in your smile? If so, call Dr. Wyckoff's office of general dentistry in Cameron. Dental Bridges can be a great solution to tooth loss, and you deserve a full-toothed smile!
