Dental Bridges
Everett, WA

At Jeff Tufarolo, DDS, PS your oral health is our number one concern, which is why we offer so many different tooth replacement options. Losing a tooth can be a very difficult thing to have to experience. It’s normal to experience a significant negative impact on your quality of life following tooth loss. It becomes difficult or painful to eat some of your favorite foods. Your speech can suffer, even your confidence in your smile diminishes. When you lose a tooth, we will advise you to consider tooth replacement immediately so that you can avoid all of the negative issues that can arise following tooth loss. Dental bridges are a great way to replace several consecutive missing teeth.

What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is a permanent dental prosthesis that is made to replace anywhere from one to four consecutive missing teeth. It must be anchored in your mouth by either your natural teeth or by a dental implant. A dental bridge is made to look just like your natural teeth and will restore your ability to eat and speak as you did before tooth loss. Dental bridges are just one of the many tooth replacement options that Jeff Tufarolo, DDS, PS offers.

Reasons for Dental Bridges

Dental bridges offer many benefits to those who have experienced tooth loss, including:
•  Replacing missing teeth
•  Fixing the issue of a sunken looking face resulting from tooth loss
•  Prevent your other teeth from drifting and changing your bite
•  Give you the ability to eat whatever you would like
•  Restoring your ability to speak naturally
•  Replace a removable partial denture that requires extra upkeep

Tooth Loss Is No Fun!

A lost tooth can lead to a lot of oral health issues if you don’t replace it right away. Teeth are held in place by their neighboring teeth, so when one is lost its neighbors will naturally drift toward the gap. This can lead to a change in the way your teeth fit together. If you bite changes there is a greater chance that you will chip or crack teeth, there is even a chance that you will develop jaw pain known as TMJ/TMD. All of this can be avoided by replacing teeth as they go missing.

Dental Implant-Supported Bridges

Dental bridges must be supported by either a natural tooth or a dental implant. In a perfect world, we would recommend always choosing to support dental prostheses with dental implants. When natural teeth are used to support prostheses, they must be significantly altered so that they will never be able to function as a singular tooth again.

Dental implants are supported by the bone in your jaw and provide you with all the health benefits that entails. When a prosthesis is supported by a dental implant, all of your natural teeth are allowed to continue functioning as natural, healthy teeth.

Please call us today at (425) 405-6400 to schedule your appointment. Remember that we recommend coming in for a professional cleaning and examination at least once every six months so that we can stay on top of your oral health.
