Restore Your Smile With A Dental Bridge in Arlington
Dr. Stephen Ratcliff is proud to offer top-quality restorative dentistry to wonderful people of Arlington, TX, Mansfield, TX, and Grand Prairie. Dental Bridges are a popular treatment for many who visit our practice looking for a solution to missing teeth. The dental bridge isn’t new, but it has come a long way in materials, craftsmanship and durability.
WHAT IS A DENTAL BRIDGE?
A dental bridge is an artificial tooth or group of artificial teeth used to “bridge” the gap between two other teeth (hence “dental bridge”). The treatment includes replicating the missing teeth to fit the gap in your smile. At either end of this group of teeth the bridge is attached, either by placing dental crowns on the teeth adjacent to the gap, or attaching the bridge in another durable or appropriate manner based on the individual case.
DENTAL BRIDGES: A GREAT SOLUTION FOR MISSING TEETH
The materials used in the creation of a dental crown are extremely durable and natural-looking, and allow the patient to feel confident in their ability to laugh, smile, and chew without fear of embarrassment or damaging the dental bridge. Dr. Ratcliff is able to provide amazingly natural-looking and functioning dental bridges that can help you go about your daily life as if you were never missing teeth. Even better, Dr. Ratcliff and his staff make sure you are comfortable and relaxed throughout the entire treatment.
DENTAL BRIDGES vs. DENTAL IMPLANTS vs. DENTURES
Three options have emerged as the most popular solutions for missing teeth.
- DENTAL BRIDGE | An artificial tooth or group of teeth mounted to neighboring teeth that bridges a gap of missing teeth
- DENTAL IMPLANTS |A dental implant is a post placed in the jaw to replace a missing natural tooth root that can be combined with a dental crown to create a perfect restoration.
- DENTURES |A more traditional approach that involves creating a series of teeth attached to an artificial gum to replace missing teeth
