Whether your missing teeth are a recent occurrence or you’ve been living without them for years, the inconvenience is obvious. Not only do missing teeth make it harder to talk and chew, they also affect your smile. In fact, many of our patients with missing teeth confess that they try to hide their smile because they’re embarrassed about their missing teeth. If that sounds like you and you live in the Annapolis area, we can help!
Options for Treating Missing Teeth
At Edgewater Dental Arts, we don’t believe in one-size-fits-all treatment. Instead, we offer several different treatments for missing teeth: dental implants, dental bridges, dentures, and partials. That way, you can pick the option that fits your oral health needs, your lifestyle, and your budget.
Before deciding on an option to replace your missing teeth, you’ll have a consultation with our team. We’ll evaluate your oral health history and address any concerns you might have. Then, we’ll get to work creating your customized dental bridge.
Why Dental Bridges Might Be the Right Choice for You
Dental bridges are one of our more popular treatments for replacing missing teeth. First, we determine the type of bridge we’ll use (fixed or removable) and decide how the bridge will be supported (implant or crown). Then, we create the bridge using natural-looking, tooth-like materials. Once the bridge is in place, you’ll notice instant benefits. Not only will your smile instantly improve, but you’ll also be able to talk and chew normally.
How Long Do Dental Bridges Last?
Dental bridges can last for many years with proper care and regular maintenance. Generally, you’ll care for your dental bridge just like your natural teeth: brush your teeth twice daily, floss each day, and visit our office regularly for dental exams. We can even repair broken bridges in some circumstances. To ask us any questions about dental bridges or to schedule your consultation, call our office today!
