Dental Bridges

Tooth loss can cause pain when eating and make it difficult to speak clearly. It can also have a significant impact on your self-esteem.

The friendly team at the Center for Dentistry in Aiken, SC, can replace missing teeth with a traditional or implant-supported dental bridge.

Learn how our dentists will go the extra mile to restore function and form to your smile with a natural-looking dental bridge.

Enhance Your Bite and Smile With a Traditional or Implant-Supported Dental Bridge

At the Center for Dentistry in Aiken, SC, our dental team provides multiple dental bridge options for patients who are missing several teeth in a row. When considering a dental bridge, you might choose:

Traditional Dental Bridge

A traditional bridge uses abutment teeth to secure artificial teeth (called pontics) in place. This type of bridge can replace up to four consecutive teeth. Your dentist will need to remove enamel from the abutment teeth in order to place dental crowns that will support the pontics. Traditional dental bridges are an affordable option that can renew your smile, restore your bite, and prevent your existing natural teeth from shifting, which can require costly additional dental work to correct.

Implant-Supported Dental Bridge

A bridge supported by dental implants offers unparalleled stability compared to traditional dental restorations. When you lose a tooth, the bone tissue in your jaw begins to deteriorate. An implant acts as a tooth root and provides important stimulation to your jaw, keeping it healthy and strong. Implant bridges are made of pontics and dental crowns, which are secured to dental implants on either side of the gap. An implant-supported dental bridge is the next best thing to natural teeth.

Why We Recommend Implant Bridges For Patients With Tooth Loss

You already know that the jawbone begins to weaken after you lose a tooth, but did you know that dental implants are the only treatment option that can prevent bone deterioration? This is because implants and dental restorations are the only method for replacing teeth from root to crown. While a traditional dental bridge can have incredible benefits for your dental function, an implant bridge is the superior option for your long-term oral health and appearance.

However, we understand that each patient comes to us with different priorities. Whatever your needs, we're ready to work with you to create a tooth replacement plan that meets your goals and budget. Our experienced dentists can customize your care so you can enjoy the precise results you're looking for.

If you'd like to discuss filling in the gaps with a traditional bridge, an implant bridge, or another tooth replacement option, we encourage you to request a consultation. You can contact us online or call us in Aiken:

We Also Offer All-on-4 Dental Implants

If you have widespread tooth decay requiring extractions or are missing an entire arch of teeth and suffer from low bone density in your jaw, All-on-4® implants can help restore your smile. The All-on-4 method uses just four implant posts strategically angled to maximize contact with the jawbone. This helps many patients avoid the need for a preparatory bone graft. All-on-4 offers the same advantages as an implant-supported bridge or traditional implant-supported denture, but with typically shorter treatment timelines. An All-on-4 restoration will look and function just like natural teeth and supports your oral and overall health by stopping further bone loss.
