The Benefits of Dental Bridges

Contributed by DentalROI

Dental BridgesIf you are missing teeth, there is a good chance you can benefit from dental bridges. Dental bridges are exactly as they sound: they bridge the space created by a lost tooth. The bridge is comprised of different metals ranging from gold to silver and porcelain. Three crowns are used: two that function as abutments to the adjacent teeth near the gap along with a middle crown that functions as a pontic (meaning false tooth). If you don't have healthy teeth near the gap, dental implants can be added. Once the dental bridge is in place, it is fixed, meaning the crown is permanently connected on the adjacent teeth or an implant.

Why Choose Invisalign

Contributed by DentalROI

Invisalign Clear AlignersAre your teeth crooked or improperly spaced? If so, you should not have to suffer in silence. Help is available at our dental office. Invisalign aligners straighten those crooked teeth with translucent aligners somewhat similar to a traditional retainer. Invisalign shifts teeth into position in 12 months or less. In fact, results can be seen as early as nine months. The best part is this is not a one-size-fits-all solution for wayward or poorly-spaced teeth. Rather, each Invisalign aligner is custom-made for each patient's unique mouth. This teeth-straightening solution is invisible and fits nice and snug above the teeth for optimal comfort.

Perhaps more importantly, dental implants allow you to eat food of all different types with ease. If you are missing one or several teeth or if your teeth are badly damaged, you should consider dental implants.

Furthermore, placing dentures in your mouth will reduce the number of trips you have to make to the dentist's office. Here is a closer look at the merits of dentures.

The gums might recede and it is even possible to lose teeth. Furthermore, gum disease appears to be tied to additional diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. Let’s take a look at what you can do to prevent gum disease.
