A dental bridge is an appliance that is used to replace a single tooth that is missing, and can also be used to replace multiple missing teeth. A bridge fills the missing space from teeth that are lost from trauma or decay. Missing teeth need to be replaced in order to maintain proper oral health. Missing teeth impact your chewing ability and much more. Issues with the neighboring teeth that remain can also develop. Bridges can provide much-needed strength to teeth that have been damaged, and they can also work to make the appearance, shape and color of teeth much more appealing. Bridges are used frequently to address issues related to missing teeth. At Sweet Water Dentistry, our dental bridges are made in-house and are made with porcelain material.
The professionals at Sweet Water Dentistry are skilled at providing patients with high quality dental bridges. Dr. Phillip Greer makes certain that your procedure will be essentially pain free. This is how a bridge procedure works: Once he has numbed the area, the teeth that sit next to gap in your mouth will be prepared to receive the bridge. A scan will be performed as means to take digital impressions. Then, your bridge will be created the same day and permanently cemented into your mouth. Healthy gums are essential for the success of a bridge placement. Therefore, it is important for patients to follow proper oral hygiene regimens, floss and brush twice daily and stick to a schedule of regular office visits.
