We are available to book an appointment today to learn which treatment protocol best suits your smile makeover.
When you visit us for a tooth replacement consultation, our dentist near you will answer all of your questions about each procedure. Having this information ahead of your decision is a great way to learn more about the differences in cost, durability, and natural appearance of each option. Our goal? Restore your smile with confidence! Part of that confidence comes from knowing you had complete information on each option before making your decision.
When you visit Little Canada Dental for your tooth replacement consultation, you’ll learn that one of the main benefits of a dental bridge versus a dental implant is the speediness that we can restore your tooth. Unlike dental implants, which often require months of treatment, a dental bridge procedure is often completed in two appointments. Additionally, patients often comment that they are pleased with their decision of a dental bridge because the procedure is less invasive than a dental implant.
Part of your treatment plan for a dental bridge from Dr. Salmanpour will include identifying which type of dental bridge will be used in your procedure. Four types of bridges are available (traditional, cantilever, Maryland, and implant-supported), and you’ll learn more about the type recommended for your procedure during your consultation.
For example, traditional bridges are the most common, but patients must have one natural tooth next to the missing tooth to use this procedure. If you don’t have a natural tooth next to the missing tooth, you will qualify for a cantilever bridge.
Still, the best way to learn which bridge will work best for your smile’s health, beauty, and functionality is to make an appointment with our dentist near you at Little Canada Dental.
