The Many Advantages of a Bridge for Replacing Teeth

Did you know that 178 million Americans are missing at least one of their teeth?

Leaving teeth missing can cause major problems to your gums and jaw. It's important to get missing teeth replaced so you can avoid potentially life-threatening conditions.

At IQ Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Indra Quagliata and our team are dedicated to bringing you the latest in general and cosmetic dentistry. That’s why we’ve compiled this helpful guide to replacing your missing teeth.

Complications of missing teeth

You may think missing teeth is a cosmetic concern, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. In reality, missing teeth can have serious consequences, including:

dental bridge is a solid structure. It either contains one prosthetic tooth or a row of prosthetic teeth that attach to your intact teeth for support. The prosthetic teeth look and feel just like your real teeth.  

At our office, we use only the most innovative dental technology with the CEREC® system, a specialized option that allows us to install your bridge in just one office visit.

Why a bridge is the best option

The process of inserting a bridge is much easier than that of getting implants. And, with the CEREC system, we use 3-D imaging to create custom dental crowns that we produce in our office. So you don’t have to wait for days or come in for multiple appointments. 

CEREC bridges are made of high-quality ceramic. The implants are custom-designed to ensure the best possible fit and a totally natural feel. And thanks to 3-D imaging, we don’t have to use a messy and uncomfortable molding system.

Don’t let missing teeth lead to serious health problems. Contact our office in Rochester, New York, by phone or use our convenient online scheduling tool to request an appointment.
