Missing a tooth? Replacement with a dental bridge is within reach in Mississauga ON

Missing tooth Replacement with a dental bridge from dentist in Mississauga

Dentistry on 10 is pleased to offer options to restore appearance and oral health, sure to fit your budget, preferences, and needs. Dr. Kotecha offers tried-and-true methods such as a dental bridge in Mississauga ON for Missing Tooth Replacement. She also leverages all modern dentistry offers with crowns, bridges, and dentures that are supported by dental implants.

Designing your bridge

In its most basic form, a 3-unit bridge includes:

  • the pontic or replacement tooth
  • two abutments on either side of the pontic

Neighbouring abutment teeth must be crowned to provide support to the pontic. A portion of the natural tooth is reduced and shaped, which makes room for the crown. The pontic and crowns are fused together and bonded as a single piece to existing tooth structure.

Considering bridges?

Dr. Kotecha may recommend this approach, especially if you lack sufficient bone structure for dental implant-supported bridges. Bridges are also a cost-effective alternative to dental implants.

Dentistry on 10 appreciates porcelain bridges for their lifelike characteristics; however, the team doesn’t limit your choices. Porcelain-fused-to-metal offers both a tooth-like appearance and lasting durability and strength.

Well-established restorative treatments are appreciated for being low-maintenance. Bridges require a little TLC, but Dr. Kotecha and her team are happy to show you how to clean under and around the bridge. Some patients take to using a floss threader. Others prefer interdental brushes to remove food debris and plaque before it hardens. With proper cleaning, your bridge can last for a decade or longer.

Alternatives

Modern dental implants are also within reach at Dentistry on 10, even for those patients who have suffered bone loss or are on a fixed budget. Dr. Kotecha’s services include bone grafting to build up the foundation for your implant-supported teeth. All-on-4 systems allow for maximum support with minimal implants, thanks to the strategic placement of as little as 4 implants per upper or lower jaw.
