Several tooth replacement options can restore health and beauty to your smile. Whether you are missing teeth from periodontal disease or due to trauma, the caring team at Social Circle Dental can help you. If live in Monroe or another community in Georgia, we can provide the right treatment for you. One of our popular treatments is dental bridges. Our dentist, Dr. Jones, is highly sought after for the conservative treatments he tailors to meet individual needs. Dr. Jones and our team take the time to explain the benefits of treatments so you can make the right decision regarding your oral health.
Understanding tooth loss
It is critical to seek treatment if you are missing teeth. Left untreated, existing teeth can shift into the gaps from missing teeth. As a result, it can be more difficult to brush the teeth and floss properly. When the teeth and gums are not kept clean, they are more susceptible to plaque buildup. Eventually, cavities can form. When cavities are not treated promptly, the tooth interior can become infected. An infection can enter the bloodstream and cause health issues.
Seeking treatment for tooth loss
Thanks to advances in dentistry and the exceptional skills of dentists such as Dr. Jones, there are many treatments for tooth loss. A bridge can be ideal for restoring one tooth or several teeth. A bridge contains an artificial tooth (pontic) which is nestled between crowns. The crowns are placed on teeth adjacent to the gap to keep the bridge anchored. We can fabricate the crowns in our office through the utilization of CEREC (Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic) technology, which provides same-day restorations including inlays and onlays.
Learning about the benefits of a dental bridge
You can count on enjoying several benefits from a dental bridge. By replacing a missing tooth, you may notice you are able to pronounce certain words more clearly. Depending on the location of the tooth, there may be a greater ability to bite and chew food. Emotional benefits from your treatment can include a newfound confidence and a boost in your self-esteem.
At Social Circle Dental, we want to help you attain a healthier smile. We would love to talk with you about dental bridge treatment during a consultation. Schedule your appointment by calling 770-464-1900 today.
General dentistry focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of oral health conditions that affect the health and beauty of the smile, whereas esthetic dentistry places emphasis on the appearance of the smile. Holistic dentistry is an approach that involves considering the mouth, teeth, and gums can affect the whole body. At Social Circle Dental, you can find all three types of dentistry. Dr. Jones and our team will work with you to prevent oral health conditions, determine the most conservative treatment, and restore beauty to your smile. Well-known in Monroe, Social Circle, Covington, Conyers, and Athens, as well as other communities in Georgia and the adjacent states, Dr. Jones has been transforming smiles for more than 45 years.
The benefits of esthetic dentistry
Although esthetic dentistry, often called cosmetic dentistry, focuses on how attractive your smile can be, it can offer several benefits to your overall health and well-being. We notice confidence increases when a patient has his or her teeth whitened or walks out of our office with a beautiful porcelain veneer. A person with an attractive smile reaps several benefits. According to studies, the smile is one of the first features a person notices when meeting someone. Smiling releases endorphins, which boosts the mood. A confident smile might help you secure a job. By keeping the smile healthy, you can prevent oral conditions such as tooth decay. You also can prevent gum disease, the leading cause of tooth loss among adults ages 65 and older.
Exploring the options
Esthetic procedures include teeth whitening, crowns, inlays, onlays, dental implants, and bridges. We offer at-home teeth whitening treatment that allows you to gradually whiten your teeth and attain the smile of your dreams. Crowns, inlays, and onlays can be fabricated in a single appointment by utilizing CEREC (Chairside Economical Restorations of Esthetic Ceramic) technology and are used to treat decayed or damaged teeth. Dental implants are titanium rods placed into the jawbone during surgery that are eventually paired with porcelain crowns to restore beauty to the smile. Bridges contain artificial teeth and crowns to restore missing teeth.
