What are dental bridges?
Bridges are a way to replace a lost tooth or teeth. They literally “bridge” the gap made by a missing tooth by attaching to real or artificial (implanted) teeth on either side. They are more permanent than dentures, and many times do not require surgery like implants.
Signs You Need A Bridge
One or more missing teeth next to each other
A dental implant is not viable
You don’t want removable dentures
What Can I Expect During My Appointment?
During your first appointment, the dentist will give you a normal checkup and get your medical history. In this appointment, we take the utmost care to understand your needs and what will suit your situation best. Several x-rays of your head, jaw, and teeth will be taken.
Preparing Your Teeth
Depending on your dental situation, this appointment will focus on either preparing your existing teeth for the bridge, or initiating implant procedures.
Fitting Your Bridge
Once your existing (or implanted) teeth are prepared, your newly created bridge is fitted into the gap of your missing tooth.
Final Follow Up
After you’ve had a chance to use your new bridge, your dentist may want to meet with you again to adjust the fit and bite to ensure maximum comfort.
