<b>What is a Dental Bridge?</b>
A bridge is a restoration that is specifically meant to enhance your entire smile. The bridge is able to replace one or more missing teeth. It is ideal for patients who don’t want to wear a partial and who don’t want to go for implants. At Omni Dental Care, we offer high-quality dental bridges at a price that you can afford easily.
<b>Why would someone need a Dental Bridge?</b>
The main reason one of our patients would require a new bridge is because they’re missing a tooth. Unfortunately, tooth loss can happen over time and because of many other factors. If the tooth is left out of place, this can cause shifting of other dentition and an inability to chew and eat properly. It is best to rectify the situation by using a dental bridge.
<b>Who is a candidate for a Dental Bridge?</b>
Dr. Oleg will thoroughly evaluate your smile to see if and when a bridge is necessary. The bridge is ideal for patients of all ages who are missing teeth. You will find that this restoration is able to last for many years before it’ll need to be replaced with a new one. You can benefit from this option if you’d rather not sit to have an implant placed.
<b>What happens during the Bridge procedure?</b>
The bridge procedure will begin with anesthetic. This is used to essentially numb the gums around the area in need of the bridge. The next step is for us to file down the two surrounding teeth so that there is more than enough room for the brand new bridge. We then carefully take new impressions and send these off to a local lab. The lab makes the bridge and sends it back to us. You’ll come in to have the bridge placed once it is ready for you to pick it up at the office.
If you believe that you need a bridge, call the office today and we will be happy to get you in as soon as possible.
