Bridges blend seamlessly and inconspicuously with each patient’s surrounding natural teeth

Our patients emerge from treatment with completely transformed smiles that are whole, healthy, and functional once again.

What are dental bridges?

The loss of a tooth creates multiple problems in your mouth. The most apparent of these problems is the conspicuous gap it creates in your smile. Dental bridges “bridges” the gap between the teeth, to create a natural looking smile. To understand the oral health benefits of dental bridges, you must first understand what occurs in your mouth when you lose a tooth:

  • The teeth on either side of the space once occupied by the tooth begin to drift toward that space, away from their optimal positions in the mouth. This compromises the bite and increases the risk of other oral health problems such as gum disease and tooth decay.
  • In the meanwhile, the body interprets the loss of the tooth as a signal that the periodontal and jaw bone tissues that once provided support to the tooth no longer serve an essential function. Therefore, it ceases to provide these tissues with the necessary supply of blood and nutrients.

  • As a result of this neglect by the body, the gums and jaw bone that once supported the missing tooth begin to fall into disuse and degrade. In the long term, this increases the risk not only of serious oral health problems, but also of such overall health problems as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and high blood pressure. On a more immediate and practical level, however, the combination of a missing tooth and degrading oral structures will make everyday functions such as biting, chewing, and talking more difficult.

What are the benefits of dental bridges?

The loss of a tooth creates multiple problems in your mouth. The most apparent of these problems is the conspicuous gap it creates in your smile. Because we crafts the pontics and crowns used in his bridges to the most exacting of specifications, your dental bridge will complete your smile virtually undetectably. The aesthetic benefits of having your missing tooth or teeth replaced by a dental crown will be evident the moment you view your smile in a mirror.

When you replace your missing tooth or teeth with a traditional fixed bridge, you will address many of these issues. For instance, the pontics will prevent the surrounding natural teeth from shifting out of place, thereby preserving the integrity of your bite. You will also be able to eat and speak with greater ease and confidence once again.

However, implant-supported dental bridges offer these benefits while also halting the degradation process that occurs when a tooth is lost. This is because the titanium that makes up a dental implant is not recognized by the human body as a foreign material. As a result, the body cannot distinguish between the implant and a natural tooth root. The dental implant fuses together with jawbone, signalling to the body that the soft and hard tissues surrounding the “tooth root” are once again vital to the mouth. Oral health is restored, and the dental bridge is provided with unrivaled support and security.

Are you a candidate for a dental bridge?

Your candidacy for a dental bridge will depend on which type of bridge you opt for:

Traditional fixed bridge: In order to have a traditional fixed bridge placed in your mouth, the natural teeth adjacent to the gap must be strong and healthy enough to support dental crowns. Before committing to this treatment method, you must understand that these natural teeth must be filed down in order to accommodate the crowns, which makes the dental bridge an irreversible treatment. If the bridge becomes dislodged or damaged, it will have to be replaced, as the natural teeth will no longer be functional or aesthetically appealing on their own.

Implant-supported bridge: The implant-supported dental bridge does not require natural teeth for support; therefore, no alteration of healthy teeth must take place as part of the procedure. Patients must, however, have sufficient jaw bone density to support the dental implant posts. Because Parshin Dental uses CT technology to plan and sophisticated computer technology to guide the placement of implants, many patients who might not be considered good candidates for implant-supported bridges at other practices are able to undergo treatment at Parshin Dental. However, patients with insufficiently dense jaw bones may be able to improve their candidacy by undergoing a bone grafting procedure prior to treatment.

I moved to Staten Island recently and was checking out local dentist when I saw that Parshin was very close to where I... live now I looked into them and decided to give them a try. I definitely don’t regret my decision for many reason including that a) I didn’t wait - they were expecting me at my designated appointment time b) the staff was organized, clean, welcoming and professional c) the Dentist was very professional, knowledgeable, respectful and willing to answer all of my questions in a thorough way. I had the best experience I’ve ever had so far at a dentist. I plan on continuing my future dental treatments there.read more
