Dr. Vidya Suri and the team of Kings Dental near the Mesquite, TX area help patients learn about the advantages of repairing the smile after tooth loss. Tooth loss is a common problem and may happen for a variety of reasons. Some patients may experience tooth loss due to injury, periodontal disease, extremely large cavities, failed root canal therapy, or extraction. Regardless of what results in the loss of natural teeth, it is important that patients take the steps necessary to restore oral function, beauty, and overall health with replacement options.
One option readily available for most patients who have lost one or more teeth within the dental arch is dental bridges. Dental bridges are porcelain restorations that are used specifically for tooth replacement. Dental bridges are extremely beautiful, durable, and effective in maintaining chewing and speaking abilities. They can also help repair a smile that may look less than perfect due to tooth loss.
Dental bridges are made by fusing together dental crowns and pontics (false teeth). This makes a long restoration that is then bonded over the adjacent teeth to anchor it into place. Then patients can enjoy the benefits of a newly restored smile.
We strive to empower you, to make well-informed decisions about your oral health through individual consultation.Request an Appointment
Other options include dental implants or dentures, but by working with a quality dentist such as Dr. Vidya Suri, patients will have the information they need to make an educated decision regarding the best repair for their specific needs. Some patients may prefer a permanent restoration for a single tooth replacement, such as a dental implant, while others may want something removable like a denture. Each patient has their specific wants and needs, and we listen to all those who enter our practice to ensure we understand their desires. We can also make recommendations for patients based on their budget, desires, and lifestyle.
