Alexandria Tooth Restoration: Dental Implants and Dental Bridges

Alexandria Dental Implants and Dental Bridges When my Alexandria clients ask me about Alexandria tooth restoration, I usually tell them about fixed (or ‘traditional’) dental bridges or dental implants. A dental bridge is an artificial tooth which replaces a missing tooth. The false tooth (called a ‘pontic’) is fused to porcelain crowns on either side of the missing tooth.

Tooth replacement has been a highly requested procedure at my Alexandria dental practice. Patients have expressed concern about tooth replacement for many years. Most of my questions in Alexandria has to do with the strength of the tooth replacement, and durability.

Dental implants are also popular concern for my Alexandria tooth replacement patients. A dental implant consists of a titanium post surgically inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. The post integrates with the bone to provide a stable foundation for the replacement tooth.

After it has bonded with the bone (it usually takes three to six months), a smaller post is attached. This post extends above the gum line. The artificial tooth (crown) is then attached. The entire process takes several months, but consistently yields terrific results for Alexandria tooth restoration patients. My VA cosmetic dentistry patients appreciate the fact that I stay up to date on the latest advancements in tooth replacement procedures.

Both VA smile restoration options preserve or restore facial contour and allow you to talk and eat normally. Tooth replacements prevent adjoining teeth from gradually shifting and can help correct bite problems, too. Dental implants and dental bridges can replace one or more missing teeth. Many Alexandria area dental patients have been treated successfully with these tooth restoration alternatives.
