Are you looking for an option to replace one or more missing teeth without having to undergo months of treatment that dental implants require? If so, our dentist near you at Yelena Popkova, DDS can provide the solution in record time! That’s right, in as few as two appointments for a dental bridge near you, Dr. Yelena Popkova can restore the confidence that you once had in your smile!
If you’ve had a missing tooth for a while now, you may already be aware that one of the main reasons to replace it is to prevent your other teeth from shifting out of place. When your remaining teeth move to fill the gap created by your lost tooth, there are a few things that can have long-term consequences.
First, the alignment of your teeth will change in appearance. Gaps will be created where food can become trapped, and bacteria can develop. When this happens, you’re at an increased risk for additional tooth loss. And secondly, when your teeth shift, there is an increased chance that your facial structure (facial appearance) will also change.
Although dental implants are considered the most durable solution for tooth replacement, the drawback is that it can take several months of somewhat invasive treatment (such as bone grafts) to complete the procedure. Conversely, a dental bridge can be completed in as few as two appointments by our dentist in Merrimack, NH at Yelena Popkova, DDS.
The appearance of your dental bridge will be as natural-looking as a dental implant, but it will not be permanently implanted into your jawbone. The three types of dental bridges used in modern dentistry are traditional fixed bridges, cantilever bridges, and resin-bonded bridges. When you make an appointment with Dr. Yelena Popkova for your tooth replacement consultation, you’ll learn more about each of these so you can make the decision that’s best for your goals.
There is no better time than now to reclaim the confidence you had in your smile before you lost one or more teeth. Please make an appointment with our dentist near you for a dental bridge consultation using our convenient online booking tool or calling our office.
