Superior Tooth Replacements
at Triad Cosmetic Dentistry
It’s not uncommon to lose a tooth. However, the daily effects that tooth loss can have on your everyday life can take a toll. From trouble eating and speaking to feeling self-conscious about your smile, missing teeth can quickly become a burden. Fortunately, at Triad Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer many restorative dentistry services, including permanent dental implant bridges.
Our Triad dentists are here to help you find the perfect treatment for your unique dental needs. Learn more about permanent bridges with our patient-friendly guide below.
What Are Permanent Bridges?
Permanent bridges are a more secure alternative to traditional dental implants. They use dental bridges as opposed to dental crowns as the framework. One dental implant will be surgically placed for every missing tooth and these implants will hold the bridge in place. Our permanent dental bridges will allow you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence again without having to worry about bone loss, emerging teeth, or premature wrinkling.
The Benefits of Permanent Dental Bridges
Permanent dental implant bridges offer a long-lasting solution for tooth loss that seamlessly blends in with your surrounding smile. As each implant naturally fuses with your jawbone, it acts as a tooth root for your final restoration, providing improved stability and functionality.
Additional benefits from a dental implant bridge include:
- You’ll feel more confident than ever before
- They look just like your natural teeth
- You can live without restriction and eat all your favorite foods
- They improve your ability to speak
- They help regenerate lost jawbone
- You can live with a fully restored smile for years to come
- Your smile will be complete in just two appointments
You’ll start with an initial consultation with one of our Triad dentists. We’ll examine your oral health, evaluate your medical history, and discuss your smile goals with you. Once we decide that a permanent bridge is perfect for you, we’ll schedule your procedure.
At your next appointment, we’ll surgically place the dental implants in the areas where your teeth are missing. Over a couple of months, the implants will naturally integrate with your jawbone through a process called osseointegration that will provide a strong, sturdy base for your custom restoration.
Once your implants have successfully integrated with your jawbone, we’ll place your dental bridge. Your new smile will be complete and you can leave our Archdale office with newfound confidence.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much do permanent bridges cost?
While permanent dental implant bridges will cost more than traditional bridges, they’re designed to last a lifetime when properly taken care of. The cost of your permanent bridge will depend on how many teeth you’re missing as well as your insurance coverage. We recommend contacting your insurance provider for a more detailed explanation of your plan.
For our patient’s convenience, we also offer financing options. To learn more about treatment costs, contact one of our Triad dentists by calling our Archdale office at (336) 434-3186.
Are permanent dental implant bridges safe?
Yes, permanent dental implant bridges are very safe! The dental implant is made of titanium, a biocompatible material, which means it bonds naturally with your jawbone. Your implant bridge will look and feel just like your natural teeth — in fact, many people won’t notice the difference. To learn more about the safety and effectiveness of permanent bridges, call our dental practice at (336) 434-3186.
What’s the difference between a temporary bridge and a permanent dental bridge?
The main difference between a temporary and permanent dental bridge is their lifespan. A traditional bridge lasts between five and 15 years, whereas, a permanent implant bridge can last a lifetime. A dental implant bridge is also secured to your jawbone, meaning it won’t ever become loose or slide around when you eat or speak.
