Fairhope, AL Dental Bridge Procedures
If you have missing teeth, they need to be replaced so that you can maintain your oral health as well as your overall physical health. There are a few options to choose from when it comes to missing teeth. One of the best is a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a restorative appliance which is designed to take the place of one or more missing teeth. A bridge serves to fill the space that is between two existing teeth when you have one or more missing teeth that need to be replaced.
Your smile, bite and physical facial features can be impacted when you have missing teeth. Not only that, but the neighboring teeth can also develop issues. Dental bridges provide strength to damaged teeth. They can also work to make the appearance, shape and color of teeth much more appealing. Unlike dentures, a dental bridge is cemented permanently. The professionals at Sweet Water Dentistry strive to provide patients with beautiful, durable dental bridges. Dr. Greer makes certain that your procedure will be essentially pain free. Once he has numbed the area, the teeth that sit next to gap in your mouth will be prepared to receive the bridge. Your teeth will then be scanned and your bridge will be made then permanently cemented.
You must have healthy gums to maintain proper care of a bridge. Therefore, it is imperative to practice good oral hygiene and to stay on track with regular dental cleanings. If missing teeth have had you embarrassed about your smile and caused low self esteem, you are among the many who could greatly benefit from having a dental bridge made by Dr. Phillip Greer of Sweet Water Dentistry. We stand ready to provide you with all of the information you need to determine if a dental bridge is the right solution for you.
