When you’re missing teeth, when teeth fall out, it’s normal not to know what to do. However, Dr. Mobasser knows what to do. Dental bridges are the best way to replace missing teeth for many patients. There are many bridges, but each is made of different materials. As you might imagine, they have some factors in their favor and some downsides to them, too. That’s true of dental bridges just in general. In this blog, we’ll go over what dental bridges are and why you might want to think about getting them. Additionally, we’ll cover some folks who dental bridges may not be perfect for.
Dr. Mobasser: Cosmetic Dentist in Los Angeles
Regarding the last sentence in the previous paragraph, it’s important to remember that when you come to Dr. Mobasser’s, you don’t have to know the right procedure for your teeth. That’s why Dr. Mobasser and our entire staff are here for you. When you schedule a free consultation, we’ll evaluate your mouth, teeth, gums, and jaw. From there, we’ll figure out a plan of what’s best for you. We’ll lay out all of your options as well as some factors to take into consideration. That way, you can make the best decisions for yourself. We’ve found over the years that the more informed our customers are, the better decisions they tend to make for themselves going forward.
Why You May Want Dental Bridges
Perhaps the best reason to get dental bridges is that they don’t include surgery. This procedure is not invasive; it’s as non-invasive as you can imagine. That means you don’t have to worry about anything implanted into your mouth. No one’s cutting you or putting some foreign object into your body. In fact, with the rise of ceramic bridges, the entire procedure is not entirely bio-compatible. By that same topic, the procedure doesn’t take long, either. You can get a permanent bridge in roughly a week. Think about it: if you’re reading this now, you could have completely replaced your missing teeth in one week.
A Better, Brighter Look
Dr. Mobasser has been putting in dental bridges for a long time. He knows what to do to make sure that your teeth look as good as possible and how to put in a dental bridge, so it looks like it was one of your natural teeth since birth. So, Dr. Mobasser can ensure the new bridge resembles your natural tooth structure perfectly; no one will ever know that these bridges were added after the fact. Indeed, you can even ask for a “brighter” color so that your teeth look a bit whiter than they may have ordinarily been.
Warding Off Disease
These bridges can also help with preventing or correcting bite problems. Bridges don’t just replace missing teeth; they can also help keep other teeth from shifting around. Mobile teeth can cause bite interference as well as a host of other problems. Of course, problems that start in your mouth don’t stay in your mouth. When your mouth hurts, the rest of your body follows suit. A dental bridge can help to maintain balance throughout your mouth, gums, jaw, teeth, and more.
The downsides to a dental bridge procedure start with the price. These can be more expensive than a dental crown or implant. The price of a dental bridge procedure can fluctuate quite a bit regarding the work done. So, the location of the bridge in the patient’s mouth, how many teeth and bridges are involved, and the health of the teeth in your mouth all help to determine the ultimate price of the procedure. Remember: bridges must be placed on teeth that haven’t been compromised. So, that has to be added in.
Additionally, the teeth holding the bridge must be reshaped and prepared, and they must be reshaped and prepared all around, not just from the front. So much goes into this procedure.
Dental bridges are the way to go for many people facing missing teeth. This procedure can help you permanently replace missing teeth, so you don’t have to worry about it again. That said, this won’t be the right procedure for many folks. The good news is that you don’t have to decide independently. Contact us to schedule a free consultation.
