What does dental bridge treatment look like?
Placing a Traditional Bridge
Why Trust Us with Your Care?
Dr. Krendl was great!! He explained everything to me as we progressed through my procedure. He is very kind and patient. Later that evening he followed up with me to make sure all was well, and it was!! I will absolutely recommend him and Colorado Dental Arts as a whole, to my friends and family!!View on Google
I have been coming to Colorado Dental Arts for the past 10 years, and could not be happier. I have a real phobia regarding dentistry, and they have treated me with great respect and without judgment. I cannot say enough about how great the staff is, and Dr. Krendl is just awesome.View on Google
Types of Dental Bridges
A traditional fixed dental bridge is a dental restoration that fills the gap left behind by missing teeth. It is made up of one or more prosthetic teeth (called pontics) held together by dental crowns on either side. Both the pontics and crowns are designed to look just like natural teeth. The crowns are attached to the teeth on either side of the gap, securing the restoration in place.
Dental implants are widely considered the best solution for tooth loss, offering patients several oral health benefits including the prevention of jawbone atrophy. Implants are surgically placed in the jawbone, acting as artificial tooth roots and providing the most stable foundation for an implant-supported dental bridge.
There are other types of bridges available, including cantilever bridges and Maryland bridges. Our dentist will discuss the benefits of each during your consultation.
Comprehensive Dental Services Offering Implant-Supported Bridge Treatment from Start to Finish
Unlike most dentists, Dr. Krendl has specialized training in implant dentistry. As part of his training, he completed a fellowship at the distinguished Misch Implant Institute. This training allows him to provide every step of your treatment at our Littleton, CO, office.
Dr. Krendl is also certified in the use of intravenous (IV) sedation. If you are anxious about implant surgery, IV sedation can help you relax. During your consultation, Dr. Krendl can assess your smile and determine if you are a good candidate for an implant-supported bridge. If you are only missing one tooth, you may be a better candidate for an implant-supported crown. If you are missing most of your teeth, implant-supported dentures may be a better option.
How Much Does a Bridge Cost?
The cost of a dental bridge varies depending on the type of bridge you need and the condition of your smile. Implant-supported bridges are typically more expensive than traditional options, but they also come with additional oral health benefits. In order to give you a precise estimate, we will first need to examine your smile. To make bridges affordable, our Littleton practice accepts many types of dental insurance, offers an in-house dental savings plan, and can help you arrange a financing plan through a third-party company like CareCredit®. Dr. Krendl will go over your options with you at your consultation and help you select the right option for your needs and budget.
