What is a Dental Bridge?
An affixed bridge can be used to replace several teeth or a single one. The teeth on each side of the gap serve as anchors, or abutments, to support the ridge through the crowning procedure. These crowns are connected to the custom crafted replacement teeth to create a “bridge” and fill the open space.
A dental bridge is by far one of the simplest and most effective methods of preserving the esthetics of your jaw and rejuvenating your smile.
About the Procedure of Dental Bridges
Bridges typically require 2 to 3 dental appoints from assessment to completion of the procedure. During a thorough examination, Dr. Byler and his team will study your X-rays and oral history to create a diagnostic model dictating the optimal method for taking care of your bridge work. After the evaluation is complete, your anchor teeth will be carefully reshaped to prepare them for the crowning procedure.
Impressions of the entire area will be taken, and a temporary acrylic bridge will be crafted immediately. Temporary cement will hold your fixture in place while the permanent bridge is being crafted. The molding process typically takes 2-3 weeks to complete.
