Dental Implants Help Support Bridges According to Charlotte Dentists By Dr. Pinnix on July 09, 2012


Missing teeth are more than just a cosmetic problem and open spaces from those missing teeth may cause the other teeth in the mouth to move or even impair speech. This common dental problem can be corrected in most cases with dental implants. For those who are seeking dental implants, look no further than our Blakeney dental office.

Such implants can be used one of two ways to help the patient's smile to improve through a direct implant into the jaw bone or by using a bridge to attach the replacement teeth.

Dentists in Charlotte who provide dental implants affix a replacement tooth directly into the jaw bone, so the new tooth looks and feels just like a real tooth. Some people may require multiple teeth to be replaced. If these teeth are all in the same area, dental implants may be used in a different manner. To fill in large spaces of several missing teeth, multiple dental implants are often outside the budget for some people. To solve this, up to two dental implants may be inserted into the mouth to serve as stable anchors for supporting a dental bridge. The bridge is designed to replace several adjacent teeth and the implants hold the bridge in place.

Missing teeth do not have to be a problem. Charlotte dental implant providers, like ours, can help. For those with missing teeth, dentists in Charlotte may be able to help. People who want to correct their smile with dental implants or a bridge supported by implants need to contact their dentist to make an appointment for an evaluation. Missing teeth do not have to be a lifelong problem, getting them fixed now can allow dental patients to show their newly restored smile with confidence.
