Tooth Restoration: Dental Implants And Dental Bridges

Florissant Dental Implants and Dental BridgesAt Koch Park Dental – Martin L. Buchheit, DDS, we often replace and restore teeth. When my patients want information about tooth restoration, I generally tell them about fixed (or traditional) dental bridges and tooth implants.

A dental bridge is an artificial tooth which replaces a missing tooth. The false tooth—called a pontic—is fused to porcelain crowns on adjacent sides of the missing tooth.

Tooth Implants Replace the Root and Crown

Dental implants are also popular and can often be a more effective choice. A dental implant includes 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 affixed. The entire process takes several months, but consistently yields extraordinary results.

Preserving Facial Contour

Both of these tooth replacements 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 issues, as well.

Tooth implants and dental bridges can replace one or more missing teeth. Many people have been treated successfully with these tooth restoration procedures.
