Chewing properly is one of the many difficulties patients experience when missing one or more teeth. It can also be difficult to pronounce certain words. As a result, they may become embarrassed when eating or speaking. This is no way to live. Dr. Jones, a respected dentist in Social Circle, can restore missing teeth with dental bridges. Patients searching for cosmetic dentistry in Monroe, Athens, Madison and the surrounding areas, have been turning to Dr. Jones with their dental needs for years. The skilled dentist takes the time to understand concerns and devise treatment plans that best meet patient needs.
Dental bridges contain artificial teeth (pontics) nestled between porcelain dental crowns. Dr. Jones uses the crowns to anchor the bridges. Dental bridges are more conservative than other tooth loss treatments such as dental implants. There is some minimal tooth preparation before placing the dental crowns. Dental bridges can be ideal for restoring one to a few missing teeth.
If you suffer from tooth loss, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Jones. At your appointment, he will examine the health of your mouth, teeth, and gums. As a holistic and biological dentist, Dr. Jones is mindful of the effect dental treatment has on the whole body. We may take x rays to examine the jawbone and soft tissue. We can also use an intra-oral camera to detect issues that may not be visible with the unassisted eye. We can then display the images on a computer screen to discuss the diagnosis and treatment with you.
After your dental bridges are customized and precisely fitted, we will provide aftercare instructions including proper flossing technique. It is also critical to brush at least twice a day and maintain dental check-ups. At the appointments, we can check the function of the dental bridge. With excellent care and maintenance, dental bridges can last a decade or more. In addition to longevity, dental bridges can provide many other benefits such as restoring the ability to bite, chew, and speak properly.
