Do you have missing teeth but don’t want dentures? You may be a candidate for dental bridge treatment. Dental bridges are restorative dental treatments that replace one or multiple consecutive missing teeth. If you have a large gap in your smile left from missing teeth or a row of missing teeth, a dental bridge can close that gap for a more aesthetically pleasing smile. At Orchard Lake Dental Care, our dental bridge treatment options can benefit patients in Keego Harbor, MI, and the surrounding areas who want to restore their smile and quality of life with improved bite function..

Dental Bridge Treatment in Keego Harbor, MI

Traditional dental bridges consist of false teeth supported by dental crowns. Dental crowns cover the teeth on either side of the tooth gap, ensuring the dental bridge stays in place. During this type of dental bridge treatment, we prepare the natural teeth for the dental crowns, ensuring that the crowns comfortably conform to the teeth. While traditional bridges restore the smile’s appearance, they do not support the underlying gum or bone tissue. Oftentimes, crowns require tooth preparation for healthy teeth. 

Dental implants offer an alternative to secure dental bridges without using natural teeth. Implants are small, cylindrical titanium posts that create a stable foundation for dental restorations. If patients choose implant-secured dentures, we will work with oral surgeons to place the implants first. 

While implants lengthen the amount of time it takes to receive a permanent bridge, they ensure that dental bridges last longer. Dental implants secure false teeth in place because they fuse with the jaw bone, creating an artificial tooth root. Implant-secured bridges last longer because they do not lay on the gums; they support the underlying bone tissue and withstand regular biting forces. The implant themselves should last for many years without replacement.
