Acworth, GA area dentist describes dental bridges
Patients in and around the area of Acworth, GA who are interested in visiting a quality dental practice with caring professionals are welcome to book an appointment at 32 Dental. Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley are dedicated dentists who are ready to help patients with their dental health care needs. When loss or extraction of a natural tooth occurs, patients need to speak with a professional about replacing this tooth for better function and health. Additionally, the loss of a tooth can affect the ability to eat and speak, while also negatively affecting the appearance of the smile. This is why dental bridges may be considered by our patients.
Dental bridges are just one of many tooth replacement options available at 32 Dental. Bridges are ceramic restorations that are made to replace one or more teeth within the dental arch. They are fabricated from crowns and pontics (false teeth) bonded together into one piece that is placed over the adjacent teeth for support. This permanent restoration may only need to be replaced if broken, and most patients will enjoy their dental bridges for many years, sometimes decades, with proper care.
Dental bridges are an alternative to dental implants or dentures. Dentures are removable restorations that are extremely economical and can be used until patients decide on a permanent option. Some patients enjoy the use of dentures and many continue to use them for years. Another option is dental implants, titanium posts that dentists can place into the bone of the jaw to act as a natural tooth root. These implants can be restored with a crown, bridge, or denture, depending on our patient's needs.

Lan Vo and Sean Breckley today at 32 Dental. We encourage patients to book a consultation appointment to learn about the advantages of using bridges as a permanent solution to tooth loss.
