If you are missing one or more teeth in a row, Dr. Gustavo Ruiz may recommend a dental bridge to fill the empty space in your smile. Our dental bridges at Periodontal and Implant Esthetics consist of dental implants attached to a dental arch that is designed to match your surrounding teeth. Implant retained dental bridges are the most conservative treatment option to replace missing teeth because they do not involve your natural teeth. Traditional fixed bridges are supported by natural teeth. These teeth have to be prepared or cut to fit the dental bridge. Oftentimes some of these teeth have no cavities or fillings in them, they are “virgin teeth”. Cutting a tooth makes it much more susceptible to cavities that may lead to root canal treatment and bridge replacement. If you feel that multiple teeth replacement in Tampa, Florida, is right for you, contact our periodontist at 813-289-3640 today to schedule your appointment.
