Get A Dental Bridge To Make Your Smile Whole Again
Perhaps you knocked a tooth out while playing hockey or some other sport where dental injuries are common. Or maybe you’ve had various oral health issues and one of your teeth eventually became so damaged that you had to get a tooth extraction. No matter the cause behind your smile gap, we can help you fill it so you can regain your confidence and chewing power.
Dental bridges are named for the fact that they literally bridge the gap in a smile after a tooth has been lost. They can be used to replace an individual tooth or multiple adjacent missing teeth. They are basically multiple dental crowns that are fused together, with the crowns on either end of the bridge being hollow so they can fit over your teeth on either side of your missing tooth.
To ensure that your tooth replacement fits right into your smile and works great, we will design your bridge to exacting specifications. In most cases, we are able to provide a bridge in as little as two visits.
In order to get a bridge to replace one or more teeth, your surrounding teeth will need to be strong and in good health because they’ll be supporting and holding your bridge in place. We will carefully assess your situation before we begin the process of providing a bridge.
If you assume that your situation can’t or won’t get worse after you lose a tooth, there’s a very good chance you’d be wrong.
For one thing, without a tooth in its normal place, your surrounding teeth will not have a barrier keeping them from drifting out of alignment. If you didn’t already have issues with crooked teeth, you likely will after losing a tooth if you don’t replace it quickly.
A missing tooth also results in your surrounding teeth having to compensate and do more work than they normally would. Losing one or more teeth will actually increase the likelihood of your surrounding teeth becoming weakened and possibly being lost at some point as well.
You may also experience significant discomfort while eating after losing a tooth. Yes, you still have the rest of your teeth, but losing one will make you appreciate how important each one is!
