Are you missing teeth or facing the prospect of losing teeth?

If you live in Spring, TX and you are facing that situation and exploring options to preserve or restore your smile, you might consider dental bridgestalking to a dentist like Dr. Michael J. Morris, DDS to see what a dental bridge can do for your smile.

When a person is missing teeth and needs to fill that space, a dental bridge is one of the safest and most effective dental procedures done. However, not every person has the same needs, which is why it’s important to talk to yourSpring, TX dentist Dr. Michael J. Morris, DDS.

A dental bridge is a permanent prosthetic device used to fill a gap between teeth. Anyone who is missing one to three teeth can be a candidate for a dental bridge. If you are missing more than three teeth you may need to consider another option, such as a partial denture. Traditional bridges rely on existing teeth to support them. Therefore, if you are missing teeth between two healthy teeth, as long as those teeth are not compromised by extensive decay or the roots are strong, you are probably a good candidate for bridgework.

Your Spring, TX dentist will custom design your dental bridge according to your specific needs. Unlike dentures, which are removable, a dental bridge can only be removed by your Spring, TX dentist. Even if your teeth are in less than optimum shape, it is possible for your Spring, TX dentist to place a bridge between two implants. If you have other underlying issues, such as advanced gum disease, your dentist will treat that before undertaking any repair work.
