Dental Bridges in Elk Grove, CA
Traditional and Implant-Secured Bridges
Over time, living with missing teeth can cause significant changes to your face that will make you look older than you actually are. And when you lose a tooth, your jawbone immediately begins to disintegrate around the empty socket.
Dental implants are the only restoration that stimulates healthy jawbone growth while protecting the shape and structure of your face. They also help to preserve your smile by holding your remaining teeth in place.
At Wackford Dental, we have implant solutions to restore one tooth, multiple teeth, or even a whole arch. Our natural-looking dental implants provide unmatched stability, comfort, and chewing power that you won’t get with any other restoration.
What Is a Dental Bridge?
At Wackford Dental, we feature two types of bridges: traditional and implant-supported.
A Traditional bridge is excellent for restoring a single missing tooth or more than one adjacent missing teeth. It works by using the natural teeth at each end of the gap as anchors for your attractive prosthetic restoration.
Like a traditional bridge, an implant-secured dental bridge is also used to restore a gap in your smile. It restores two or more adjacent missing teeth. The bridge is held in place using dental implants. At Wackford Dental in Elk Grove, Dr. Elsemary and Dr. Salem use our CEREC technology to design and create your dental bridge right here in our office.
The Advantages of an Implant-Secured Dental Bridge
If you’re missing a single tooth or more than one teeth in a row, then you could probably benefit from an implant-secured dental bridge. This treatment comes with a number of advantages:
- Renewing the appearance of your smile
- Stimulating essential jawbone growth
- Restoring your ability to eat and drink freely
- Preserving the shape of your face
- Efficiently distributing your bite-force when you eat
- Preventing your natural teeth from shifting position
Bridging the Gap for a Better Smile
A successful dental bridge depends on its foundation. If you work to maintain a healthy smile with regular brushing and flossing, your bridge could easily last for years.
At Wackford Dental, Dr. Elsemary and Dr. Salem can replace your missing teeth with a beautiful, porcelain prosthetic. The easiest way to find out if you’re eligible for this type of treatment is to call our office and schedule a consultation.
