Fixed Dental Bridge, Porcelain Fixed Bridges at Yardley PA Dental Care

Fixed Dental Bridge, Porcelain Fixed Bridges are comprised of "Dental Porcelain." Dental Porcelain is exceptional for its ability to be used to both to take the form of and in reproducing the function of an original tooth or even many teeth. The use of a Porcelain Fixed Bridge is an option for filling the space created by a missing tooth or teeth. Your dentist at Yardley PA Dental Care forms the dental bridge, and the results are indistinguishable from those of the missing tooth/teeth, where it takes of missing teeth in your mouth.

The sides of a dental bridge use the surrounding teeth for support, hence the name "bridge." A dental bridge replaces the missing tooth, performing functionally and cosmetically. Dental Bridge work is as much an art as it is an exact science and the dental office of Dr. Kenwood with there many years of experience as your Pennsylvania dentist are bridgework specialists. At our Yardley Pennsylvania dental office we use different materials for the dental bridge; they include; gold alloys, porcelain bonded to metal alloy, or all a ceramic porcelain material. Together with the dentist, the dental tram and yourself, a choice will be made based on the requirements needed for strength, wear, and esthetics.

Porcelain fixed bridge is particularly advantageous when there is a need for replacing a tooth or some teeth that are no longer viable or are damaged. Porcelain is preferred for dental bridges as it is particularly suited for being "sculpted" in matching the look of your existing natural tooth enamel. Dental Porcelain bridges are extremely durable, and the use of this material provides a dental bridge with a robust and stable base to on which to rely upon.

It is imperative that a missing tooth or teeth are replaced as promptly as possible. There are several reasons to quickly replace missing teeth as fast as possible, including the fact that. When not treated quickly, the teeth surrounding the gap begin to shift inward, creating a cascading reaction of dangerous things. Teeth use their neighbors for support, and, with once there is a tooth missing, they neighboring teeth can begin to "fall." After worsening over time, over time, your dental bite likely changes for the worse in response to the pressure. Once you have missing teeth, the situation will worsen, as will the amount of issues and problems with the entire jaw, e.g. TMJ . Additionally missing teeth can cause the surrounding teeth also to deteriorate, and it is just a matter of time before the neighboring teeth are also lost. Not replacing a missing tooth can also leads to "Gum disease" becoming more and more of a serious problem. Keep in mind too, by not getting missing teeth replaced, both the cost of treatment by a dentist as well as the level of pain associated with and the standards of the difficulty of treatment increases as the neglect continues.

There used to be limited options when dealing with tooth loss. Now, though, there are many choices available. Dental implants are a healthy solution that look and feel great. Implants create a secure foundation for further dental work such as crowns and bridges. Dental implants provide fantastic opportunities for creating a comfortable, natural-looking smile while preventing some of the jaw changes that happen with tooth loss.

Placing one or more tooth implants is a minor dental surgery where a surgical grade titanium post is implanted into the jawbone. The surrounding bone bonds to the post, creating a sturdy foundation for a customized porcelain crown or bridge. Implants can also be used to make dentures or partial dentures fit better and feel more natural.

There are many benefits of teeth implants. Implants allow us to preserve the structure of the jawbone, which helps prevent shrinkage of the jaw and further tooth loss or other dental issues. Treatment can be limited to the affected tooth without work on the surrounding teeth. Finally, teeth implants can provide a natural smile. There are many options available when using dental implants, and all of them can give you beautiful results.

Because of their vital function in supporting the bone structure as well as their versatility and longevity, implants are the preferred solution when dealing with missing teeth. In fact, they are now recommended by the American Dental Association as the first line of treatment for tooth loss. Discuss with Dr. Becker the variety of options and benefits that dental implants offer.
