A dental bridge is a fixed appliance to replace missing teeth.
Reasons for a fixed bridge:
- Fill space of missing teeth
- Maintain facial shape
- Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
- Restore chewing and speaking ability
- Restore your smile
- Upgrade from a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance
What is the process in a dental bridge procedure?
A dental bridge procedure may require two appointments. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a portion of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a highly accurate impression is made which will be sent to a dental laboratory to be fabricated. A temporary bridge will be made and worn for several weeks until your next appointment.
On the second visit, the permanent bridge will be checked, adjusted, and cemented for a proper fit. The new bridge will be permanently cemented at a later time.
There’s not one bad thing to say about Dr. Robbins or his staff. They are simply amazing, comforting, and professional! I’ve never had a better experience with a dentist!
Just like his father in law before him (Mike McBride), Jeremy is the only one I trust my (and my kids’) smile with. Great hygienist staff as well. Could not be more happy with this office!!!
