Anchorage cosmetic dental and tooth implants

At Alaska Premier Dental Group, serving Anchorage and Wasilla, we can answer your questions about improving your smile.

  • Do you have a missing tooth?
  • Are you considering the types of tooth restorations available?
  • Does a dental bridge seem to make the most sense financially?

If you have a missing tooth and want to restore that gap in your mouth, you should examine the differences between a dental bridge and a dental implant.

Dental bridges have replaced teeth for generations of people. However, they are a 3-tooth solution to a 1-tooth problem. The teeth next to the missing tooth must be prepped and crowned to hold the replacement (floating) tooth.

Why does a dental implant have key advantages over a dental bridge?

  • 1-tooth solution to a 1-tooth problem.
  • Usually stronger.
  • Lessen the risk of bone recession (as compared to a bridge) because it replaces the tooth root.
  • Easier to keep clean which results in a lower risk of decay.
  • Lasts longer.
  • Eventually, could support a denture or partial denture.

If you need to replace a tooth, talk to your Anchorage dentist about all of your treatment options. If you select a dental implant, it will probably be less pricey in the long run and will certainly feel better.

At Alaska Premier Dental Group, we can help you decide how best to replace your missing tooth. Our services include family and cosmetic dentistry. Schedule your next appointment with us today!
