Discuss Your Options with Our Experienced Dentist
When it comes to filling gaps caused by missing teeth, we provide several different options for our patients. Dentures are a set of removable prosthetic (artificial) teeth that are simply placed over your existing gum line and removed each night. Implants go through a few installation stages, beginning with a post that is drilled into your jawbone through your gum line before the false tooth or teeth are connected to this permanent post.
Bridges are more permanently fastened than dentures, as they are cemented to the teeth that surround the space. Patients who choose a dental bridge as a solution do so because it’s more convenient than the removable dentures but less invasive a procedure than implants.
The procedure for installing a bridge is as follows:
- We prepare surrounding natural teeth through filing and re-contouring
- We make an impression of your teeth so your bridges match
- We install a temporary bridge to protect your teeth while your permanent bridge is made
- We cement your new bridge to your prepared teeth
- After a few weeks of wear, we’ll make any last-minute fit adjustments
- Once the bridge has been adjusted, we attach it permanently
If you are curious to know whether a bridge is a good option for your mouth, our experienced dentist is happy to provide a consultation. We also offer a complimentary new patient exam and full mouth series of X-rays (ADA codes 0150, 0210 - value of $195.00).
