Dental Bridges Annapolis MD

Dental BridgesAn Overview

A dental bridge can replace one or more consecutive missing teeth, giving you back a functional, healthy and beautiful smile. Annapolis dentist Dr. Vernon Sheen places all types of dental bridges for restoring dental health and enabling patients to enjoy the benefits of good oral health.

The most common type of dental bridge recommended and placed today is a fixed bridge, anchored by your existing healthy teeth or dental implants. A dental bridge completes your smile after losing teeth and supports a functional bite for long term dental health.

Dental Bridge VS Dental Implants

When replacing one missing tooth, choosing between a dental bridge and a dental implant can seem overwhelming. Dr. Sheen will evaluate your oral health condition and discuss your concerns and goals before recommending the option that will best meet your needs.

Many patients are a candidate for both treatment options and should consider the following:

  • Stability of your smile: both treatment options can offer a stable and secure smile, but using dental implants to either secure a bridge or as the tooth replacement will provide the most secure and lasting result.
  • Bone retention: only a dental implant will offer the benefit of reduced bone loss in the jaw because the implanted post acts like a tooth root.
  • Time and cost: dental implants, either as anchor or tooth replacement, will require a larger up front commitment of time and money. However, most patients report that the long term satisfaction outweighs the cost and effort required.

Dental Bridges What to Expect

Dr. Sheen will meet with you to develop a personalized treatment plan to meet your needs and give you back the smile you desire.

If the placement of dental implants is part of your dental bridge process, Dr. Sheen will coordinate the surgical phase with a local specialist and follow up with you to place your final restoration and attach your new bridge.

Over the course of several visits, your new smile will be put into place and we will make personalized recommendations for keeping it healthy for years to come.
