Restorative dental care is a special category of dentistry that Dr. David Lamothe at Smyrna Dental prides himself in providing to new and loyal patients. Located near Vinings, Georgia, Smyrna Dental offers many treatments for patients interested in improving the health, beauty, or function of their smile.
Dr. Lamothe works closely with individuals to help them rebuild their teeth or gums after trauma or disease. When patients have lost teeth due to decay, injury, or periodontal disease, they have options at our office to fill in those gaps, including dentures and dental bridges. However, many patients have trouble making an appropriate choice. Patients who are candidates for “false teeth” or bridges often wonder about the best alternative for their situation.
False teeth (dentures) and bridges both provide a way to replace missing teeth. They are natural-looking and offer improved function. They can also help keep the existing teeth from shifting out of place due to gaps from missing teeth.
Below are some of the differences between dentures and dental bridges:
