When a child loses a baby tooth, it is often cause for celebration — your little one is growing up!
However, if a child loses their permanent teeth, the missing teeth will need to be replaced. Tooth bridges are commonly used to replace missing teeth. If your child is missing permanent teeth, we bet you’re wondering how much a tooth bridge costs. The truth is that it varies depending on your dentist.
At Kool Smiles, we can answer any questions about the cost of a tooth bridge, with or without insurance. Call us today!
The cost of a bridge can be different from dentist to dentist. As a rough estimate, costs of a bridge can range from $700 to $1,500 per tooth. If you have dental insurance, check your policy to see what’s covered.
Kool Smiles is committed to providing affordable dental care for children, adolescents, and teens. That’s why we accept many payment options to help you keep the cost of a tooth bridge as low and affordable as possible.
A dental bridge provides an artificial tooth to replace a permanent tooth that is missing. It fits in your child’s mouth and is normally attached to the other teeth around it. Those teeth will first be covered with a crown to better hold the bridge in place and to prevent other teeth from moving.
Dentures are also an option for missing teeth. While a bridge is anchored to other teeth in the mouth, dentures are not attached in the mouth in the same way and are held in place by sticking to the gums.
When your child loses a permanent tooth, it’s important to get to a dentist as soon as you can. Once a tooth falls out, the teeth around it lose support and can become unstable.
At Kool Smiles, we work hard to provide high quality dental care for all budgets. Kool Smiles offices are always accepting new patients, and we are happy to discuss the cost of a tooth bridge with you, whether you have insurance or not.
If you have any questions about a tooth bridge, call us today!
