Palm Harbor Tooth Restoration: Dental Implants and Dental Bridges

Posted on December 9, 2011

Palm Harbor Dental Implants and Dental Bridges When our Palm Harbor clients ask us about tooth restoration, we usually tell them about fixed (or ‘traditional’) dental bridges or tooth implants. A dental bridge is an artificial tooth which replaces a missing tooth. The false tooth (called a ‘pontic’) is fused to porcelain crowns on either side of the missing tooth.

Restorative dentistry has been a highly requested service at our Palm Harbor dental practice. Patients from Palm Harbor and the nearby areas have expressed concern about tooth replacement for many years. Most of our questions have to do with the strength and durability of the tooth replacement.

Dental implants are also popular concern for our Palm Harbor tooth replacement patients. A dental implant consists of a titanium post surgically inserted into the jaw bone to replace the root of the missing tooth. The post integrates with the bone to provide a stable foundation for the replacement tooth.

After it has bonded with the bone (it usually takes three to six months), a smaller post is attached. This post extends above the gum line. The artificial tooth (dental crown) is then attached. The entire process takes several months, but consistently yields terrific results for Palm Harbor tooth restoration patients. Our cosmetic dentistry patients appreciate the fact that we stay up to date on the latest advancements in tooth replacement procedures.

Both Palm Harbor smile restoration options preserve or restore facial contour and allow you to talk and eat normally. Tooth replacements prevent adjoining teeth from gradually shifting and can help correct bite problems, too. Tooth implants and dental bridges can replace one or more missing teeth. Many Palm Harbor area dental patients have been treated successfully with these tooth restoration alternatives.
