Don't Let Missing Teeth Cause More Problems
Call for a Consultation
Missing teeth are a hassle when eating and, if the gap is in the front, can make it uncomfortable to smile. There are also other problems you may not notice at first. Gaps allow nearby teeth to slowly shift out of place. When that happens, your teeth no longer mesh together harmoniously and can cause new wear in unexpected places. Missing teeth also let the bone in your jaw deteriorate, which can lead to more tooth loss.
Dr. Ann Sielicki at Sonoran Dental Design in Scottsdale, AZ, can restore your smile and bite, and also help prevent future tooth loss with a dental bridge. She has been providing Scottsdale with exceptional care since 1999 and has patient comfort down to a science. To find care for your dental needs, contact us or call:

Bridge Treatment Timeline
We Offer Two Types Of Dental Bridges
A traditional bridge is held in place by nearby teeth on either side of the gap, which are reshaped to support the dental crowns. This method has been used to replace missing teeth for decades. However, due to the strain on the natural teeth, only so many teeth can be replaced with the bridge and pontics. Generally, the maximum number of teeth that can be replaced is four.
Implant-supported bridges are held in place by dental implants, small posts that act like tooth roots and are surgically inserted into the jaw. Since the implants need time to fuse with the jawbone, this method takes longer, but implants can last decades or even a lifetime. Only the bridge itself will need to periodically be replaced. Implants can also support more teeth in a bridge.

The timeline for an implant-supported bridge is longer than that of a traditional bridge, but many patients appreciate the bone-regenerating health benefits that only implant-supported options can offer.
Implants are also versatile when it comes to replacing missing teeth. For patients missing only one tooth, they won't need a bridge at all, since a dental implant can be topped by a single dental crown. If you are missing several teeth in a row, dental implants might be the preferred solution, since implants can support longer stretches of teeth than traditional bridges.

I arrived early and was taken right in. Dental assistant was great and prepared me for the dentist. Dentist was very good and I would come here again! I am a snowbird from Canada but I would pick these folks as my regular dental care group. They are that good.View on Google
