A dental bridge is one of the most common treatment provided to replace missing teeth. Patients who get their teeth extracted often shy away from smiling or feel embarrassed during social interactions.
Making a bridge will require 2-3 appointments. At your initial consultation appointment dentist will discuss the treatment options with you. If you
agree with the option of dental bridge, your first appointment will be booked for crown preparation. In this appointment teeth on either side of the
empty space will be prepared and an impression will be taken, this impression will be sent to the lab. The lab usually takes approximately 2 wks to
make the bridge. During this transission period a temporary bridge will be placed. At your second appointment the temporary bridge will be removed
and permanent bridge is cemented. Depending on the situation you may need to come to our office during transition period for “try-in” – before
permanent bridge is cemented - this is usually required for complicated cases.
Dental bridges are fixed, they are cemented on to your teeth so you don’t have to worry about removing them at night and putting it back on in the morning. If you take good care of your teeth and maintain good oral hygiene, the bridge could last for 5 – 10 years. You can use floss threaders to clean underneath the bridge.
