Dental Bridges Complete your Smile

Older-Couple-OutdoorsDental bridges are a way to replace one or more missing teeth with an arch which is custom-fit to your particular mouth. Two porcelain crowns are placed on the abutment teeth which are on either side of the space where teeth are missing. An artificial tooth is firmly attached in the center of the bridge. One advantage of dental bridges is that the procedure is non-surgical and non-invasive. Houston dentist, Dr. Deborah Gennero, will tell you more about replacing missing teeth in as little as two office visits with a crown and bridge.

Why Dental Bridges?

One of the main side effects of untreated tooth loss is teeth drifting. This effect of missing teeth is potentially dangerous for your oral health. Possibilities include a misaligned bite and temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). When your teeth aren’t properly aligned, it can also lead to excessive tooth wear, jaw muscle exhaustion, and teeth grinding. To avoid teeth drifting, bridgework is a common recommendation. The restorative apparatus will prevent teeth from shifting by holding abutment teeth in place and filling in the gap. Dental bridges also block excessive tooth wear by restoring chewing function.

Attaining the Right Fit

Dr. Gennero will begin your restorative dentistry procedure with a consultation to determine factors for candidacy. Other potential options for tooth replacement will be laid out for you. After determining that a dental bridge is the best option in your particular case, our dental team will begin by taking impressions of your abutment teeth. These impressions are next used to fabricate the dental crowns which will support the bridgework and artificial tooth or teeth. Once the bridgework is ready, you’re ready for your next appointment. The bridge is fitted and affixed for long term and natural looking rejuvenation to your beautiful smile.

Eating Disorders Affect Teeth, Says Houston, TX Dentist


Posted By : GenneroAdmin Comments are off

Having an eating disorder is a serious disease that stems from misconceived mental thoughts about one’s self-image. Those who suffer from an eating disorder not only suffer with unhappy thoughts about themselves, they inflict damage to their bodies and smiles. In fact, many extreme cases of eating disorders have resulted in multiple tooth extractions due to tooth decay caused by acid erosion.

Dr. Deborah Gennero, your Houston, TX dentist, discusses the effects of eating disorders on overall and oral health in this blog.

Types of Eating Disorders

  • Anorexia. Patience who suffer from anorexia, have an incredible fear of becoming fat or gaining even the slightest amount of weight. Regardless of what their actual weight is, these patients refer to themselves as fat and even obese. To control their fears, anorexic patients go through bouts of extreme fasting, which only includes drinking water. Paired with their lack of eating, anorexic patients also exercise excessively.
    Additionally, when their hunger overtakes, anorexic patients binge and then purge, similar to those who suffer from bulimia. According to your
    Houston, TX dentist, this persistent purging causes damage to the enamel, since it’s making frequent contact with stomach acid.
  • Bulimia. Patients with bulimia share similar traits to those with anorexia. However, rather than the occasional bout of binging and purging, bulimia patients do this daily—sometimes even multiple times a day.
    For example, a bulimia sufferer will gorge on foods high in fat and carbs. Then, once they’ve finished eating, a great sense of guilt overtakes them. Thus, these patients utilize laxatives and vomiting to rid their bodies of the food they have consumed. As aforementioned, the purging exposes teeth and oral tissues to stomach acids. Yet, with bulimia patients the effects of acid erosion on teeth is worsened since purging occurs daily.
