Dental Bridge To Fill The Gaps In Your Smile

Replacing Missing Teeth With Fixed Bridges

You have several options to replace them if you have teeth that are missing. We can help you choose the treatment option that is best for you, depending on the number of your missing teeth.

A fixed bridge is one replacement option if you only have one or two missing teeth. This restoration option is highly functional, aesthetic, and made from porcelain. Where a partial denture is removable, this replacement option is a permanent solution.

Below are several reasons for the need for a fixed bridge:

  • Restore and improve your smile
  • As an upgrade to a more permanent solution from a partial denture
  • To prevent your remaining teeth from moving out of place or drifting
  • To restore your ability to speak correctly or chew your food
  • Filling in the space of teeth that are missing
  • The maintenance of your faces’ natural shape

Getting a Fixed Bridge – What’s Involved

You will need to be prepared for a couple more appointments if you decide to get a fixed bridge after consulting with our doctor. The teeth that will support the bridge have to be prepared for the reception of the crown while your teeth are still numb.

To prepare for the restoration, we will need to make impressions of your teeth, including the missing area of your teeth. A temporary bridge that will be worn until the next appointment will have to be created.

We will put your fixed bridge in place, checking to make sure there are no problems and that it fits appropriately at your second appointment. The instructions on the proper care for the permanent bridge will be given to you then.

A fixed bridge may undoubtedly be a good solution for you if you have missing teeth. More office time could be required, and other, more costly issues could arise the missing teeth are not replaced.

Call us for an appointment today, and let us get started with the consultation to determine which solution will be the best for you.
