4 Reasons Why A Dental Bridge is a Good Choice Shared by the Troy Family Dentist

by

There are many options in dentistry today for missing teeth replacement. A dental bridge is just one such option, and today we explain the benefits of fixed bridges. A fixed (non-removable) bridge is durable and creates an excellent replacement for missing teeth

You’re probably most familiar with a “traditional bridge” that involves two crowns that are placed on two adjacent teeth and are then attached to an artificial tooth (pontic). This creates a “bridge” that fills the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

4 Reasons to Choose a Dental Bridge

You and the Troy family dentist may decide on a fixed bridge for any of the following reasons:

  • Fill space of missing teeth.
  • Prevent drifting of remaining teeth
  • Restore ability to chew and/or speak clearly
  • Upgrade from a removable partial denture
How We Place a Dental Bridge

Placement of a fixed bridge will generally require two or more visits. The two anchoring teeth will be prepared by removing a portion of enamel, allowing room for a crown. Your Troy family dentist will then take an impression of your teeth. This mold is sent to a dental lab where a custom-fit bridge will be created specifically to fit your teeth and accommodate your bite. You will leave your first appointment with a temporary bridge created by your dentist.

Your second appointment takes place once the permanent bridge has been created. At this point, it will be carefully checked and adjusted to make sure it fits properly. The bridge is then permanently cemented.

At the conclusion of this visit, you receive instructions on how to properly care for your new permanent bridge. The life of your new bridge will be extended greatly by following proper brushing and flossing techniques and scheduling regular dental visits.
