Restore your oral health and the aesthetic function of your smile

What makes Distinctive Dental Care unique is our approach to providing aesthetic results that serve a functional health purpose. The purpose of our bridgework is to restore both the health and appearance of your smile after tooth loss. This treatment can restore your lost teeth, provide support for your remaining teeth and assist in creating the accurate tooth positioning within a proper bite alignment. Our passionate team at Distinctive Dental Care will ensure that you are comfortable as we restore your smile and that you are confident with the outcome.

Correct tooth loss before it evolves into a wider health concern

Single or multiple tooth loss can have a debilitating effect on both your health and your self-esteem. Tooth loss can occur in the event of trauma, gum disease and tooth decay, as well as the general deterioration of your teeth as you age. While your tooth loss can indicate the prevalence of a more significant oral concern, it can also instigate further health disorders. Gaps in your teeth can allow for food and bacteria to become caught, which can lead to the development of gum disease and the discolouration of your tooth.

Protect your jawbone and soft tissue

In addition to affecting your oral hygiene, the space left by your missing tooth can also catch on your tongue and your mouth’s soft tissue. This can result in the tearing of these important components of your oral health, which can leave them open to the development of infection.

A wider effect of tooth loss can be seen in the potential deterioration of your jawbone. As your jawbone requires constant stimulation to remain functional and healthy, tooth loss can trigger the bone to deteriorate. This deterioration can also further impact your wider health and alter the facial structure of your bones. A number of serious health problems have also been associated with tooth loss, including cardiovascular disease and chronic kidney disease.

Bridges can treat your tooth loss and restore your oral mobility

A bridge is essentially a device anchored to surrounding teeth that can replace one or more teeth. When a tooth is replaced with cemented bridgework, the teeth on either side of the gap must be prepared, often with crowns, as they will hold the bridge in place. Bridges are a long-term solution that can prevent the cycle of harmful dental conditions that can occur in relation to tooth loss. These oral concerns are those such as the shifting and drifting of the existing teeth, tooth decay and bone loss.

Not only will our committed team at Distinctive Dental Care ensure that we correct you oral health when using bridges to treat your tooth loss, we will also provide you with an aesthetic benefit that can enhance your smile.
