Dental BridgesAn Overview
The replacement of missing teeth is important to avoid more complex dental problems from developing due to shifting teeth, changes in gum tissue and bone loss. Dr. Raj Upadya offers dental bridges as a solution for missing teeth. A dental bridge is used to bridge a gap between teeth to replace one or more missing teeth. A dental bridge can either be removable or fixed and is made from a variety of tooth-like materials.
Dental Implants vs Dental Bridge
When compared to a dental bridge, a dental implant provides superior long term results. Dental implants are often the best solution for replacing teeth because they are the closest thing to a natural tooth. In fact, most people forget they have a dental implant.
While the initial concern of expense may be an issue, dental implants are an extremely conservative solution and present the least number of problems in the future. And while dental implant surgery may cause anxiety, the procedure is no more involved than the process of having a tooth pulled.
Dr. Upadya uses dental implants to replace a single tooth or several teeth depending on the individual case. Learn more about Dental Implants.
