Indianapolis Dentist Offers Quality Dental Bridges

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Dr. Craig Arive and his dental healthcare team are excited to bring the structural support of dental bridges to their clients in Indianapolis, IN.

Teeth are often lost due to decay, disease, or injuries to the mouth and jaw. The loss of these teeth can cause issues with the bite, trouble chewing, and pain among cosmetic concerns. The most common treatment for missing teeth is a dental bridge, or a set of artificial teeth. This set consists of two topping crowns on either side of a false tooth, or pontic, which will cover the space left by the missing tooth.

There are many benefits to dental bridges, including:

  • Helping to realign a bite compromised by missing teeth
  • Keeping adjoining teeth from shifting dramatically
  • Improving the patient’s ability to speak clearly and chew comfortably
  • Improving the aesthetic quality of the smile

The cost of a dental bridge will vary depending on the material it is made of and the number of teeth it replaces. Generally, though, dental bridges are covered under dental insurance. The practice of Dr. Craig Arive is happy to accept most major dental insurance providers. You can find more information about the procedure and the office’s financial policy on their website.

Called to help others in a more direct way, though, he returned to school for his Doctorate in Dental Surgery from the Indiana University School of Dentistry, and has now been practicing in the field for ten years.
