Dental bridges are used to fix gaps between teeth or fill spaces where teeth are missing. These appliances are composed of a porcelain tooth that fills unwanted gaps by attaching to the existing teeth on either side. They are highly durable and may last several years; however, they sometimes need to be adjusted or replaced due to wear.
If a patient is missing multiple teeth, dentists many rely on implants to helpanchor the bridge. The seasoned doctors at Dental Care Springfield are highly skilled at performing these procedures, which restore oral health and improve speaking and chewing ability.
What To Expect
- In the first visit, the dentist will prepare the teeth on either side of the gap to support the bridge. The gap is then filled with a temporary bridge.
- Our dental team then creates a custom bridge perfectly fitted to the patient’s teeth. It should be ready in about two weeks.
- The patient returns for a second visit, during which the doctor cements the custom-made bridge into place and makes any adjustments needed to ensure maximum comfort.
