Dental Bridges in Tuscaloosa
Long-lasting, durable bridges
A dental bridge is a natural-looking device that’s custom-made to fill a gap in your smile caused by one or more missing teeth. Two of your natural teeth are used as anchors to hold the bridge unit.
Dr. Roe is an experienced prosthodontist who is an expert in restoring and replacing teeth. He received three more years of training in addition to the standard four years of dental school. Dr. Roe also has years of experience creating durable, comfortable bridges that look natural for his patients.
Other options for missing teeth
There are other options for replacing one or two missing teeth, or even several missing teeth. After an exam and X-rays, Dr. Roe can go over these alternatives with you. Depending upon your specific situation, he will advise you which is the best solution for you.
Dr. Roe prefers dental implants to replace missing teeth. Implants last at least twice as long as a bridge (often a lifetime), and are much stronger than a dental bridge. Dental implants are the closest thing to a real tooth. Implants also don’t require the shaving down of the patient’s healthy teeth as with a bridge. (See video above right.)
An implant-supported bridge is an excellent option for someone missing multiple teeth all in a row. Instead of anchoring the dental bridge to the patient’s other teeth, dental implants are placed to act as the anchors.
