It can be stressful to deal with oral health complications and tooth loss. If you or a loved one is experiencing complications, we want to remind you that we are here to help and support you. One way we do that is to make treatment recommendations based on what you need to restore your oral health. One treatment we may suggest for severe decay or a missing tooth is a porcelain bridge. We want to be sure that our patients feel informed and comfortable with any treatment we recommend. Read on to learn more about this treatment and how we use it to improve a patient’s oral health.

Would you love to change or update your smile but are unsure how to go about it? The arrival of spring is the perfect time to look into a smile makeover. After the winter, everyone is eager to get out and about, making it the perfect time for special events. Even if you don’t have any special events or plans in your near future, there is no time like the present to treat yourself.
At Pollard Dental, we do everything we can to save your natural teeth, but unfortunately that is not always possible. At times, tooth decay, gum disease, or other medical conditions can lead to the difficult decision to extract most if not all of the teeth in a patient’s mouth. While our first recommendation for a tooth replacement option is typically dental implants, that is not always a viable option for a number of patients. In those cases, we recommend dentures. Dentures have been used for many years to replace teeth, and with advancements in dental techniques and technology, they have come a long way.
At Pollard Dental, we do everything in our power to save your natural teeth. However, unfortunately, that is not always possible. In certain circumstances, we need to make the difficult decision to extract a tooth. A tooth extraction is when the entire tooth structure, including the root, is fully removed. There can be a number of reasons that a tooth may need to be removed, including a medical condition, severe decay due to neglect, trauma, gum disease, and spacing issues before orthodontic treatment.
Are you missing a tooth or teeth and are hesitant to choose a tooth replacement option? Are you deciding if you even need to replace your tooth? At Pollard Dental, we know how emotional missing a tooth can be, especially if it is in the front of your mouth and is visible when you talk or smile. We also know that at times patients deliberate whether to replace a rear tooth that is not quite as visible. There are many circumstances that can lead to your hesitation such as cost, length of procedure, and recovery time. We want to stress the importance of speaking with our staff and coming up with a solution that you feel comfortable with. Not replacing a tooth can lead to further complications that can cause discomfort and added expense.
Are you struggling with missing teeth and feel unsure which tooth replacement option is right for you? Or do you have an idea in mind but are concerned about the need to visit multiple offices and specialists? Dental implants are the best alternative to regular teeth, as the look and functionality of the implant mimics that of a natural tooth. At Pollard Dental, we are proud to not only offer dental implants as a tooth replacement option, but we are also a one-stop shop. We complete all aspects of the implant in our office so no need to worry about visiting several offices.
