Brentwood patients have choices in dental bridges for tooth replacement

When tooth loss occurs in childhood, the experience can be thrilling. Adults who lose a tooth, on the other hand, have a great deal to consider. Permanent teeth are supposed to last us our lifetime. Loss results in problems for the smile and for oral health and even general wellbeing.

Immediately, tooth loss leaves a gap in the smile. Whether this gap is at or near the front of the mouth or the back, it will be noticeable anytime the mouth opens to speak or laugh. Knowing there is a visible gap, a person may become hesitant to smile broadly or laugh freely.

Gaps in the smile have a secondary effect, as well. One of the purposes of teeth is to support the oral structure. When a tooth is lost, surrounding teeth lose support and can shift out of place. Depending on the degree of shifting, the smile may be impacted cosmetically as a result.

At Brentwood Family Dental in beautiful California, we offer choices for tooth replacement. In addition to the various types of dental bridges, we also perform dental implant treatment for outstanding function and beauty. Dental bridges have been used in dentistry for decades and are still considered a reliable, affordable solution to tooth loss. The bridge that most people choose is the fixed bridge, which consists of two crowns fused to an artificial tooth. This treatment requires the teeth adjacent to the gap to be fitted with crowns. These teeth will support the artificial tooth for the restoration of an attractive, functional smile.

With the development of dental implants, a great new way to approach tooth replacement became available. Patients who have undergone this treatment report such stability from their restorations that some cannot tell the difference between them and natural teeth. Fortunately, dentists have had the opportunity to learn how to combine implants with restorations such as bridges and dentures. Patients of Dr. Alkhoury can choose the ultimate in stability through this combination, having an appropriate number of implants inserted as support for their bridge.

Your smile deserves the very best, which it can get at Brentwood Family Dental. Call 925-344-5296 to schedule your visit. Back to Dental Crowns and Bridges Home Page
