Have you recently lost a tooth, which has left quite a displeasing gap in your smile? Dentists recommend getting a tooth extracted due to causes like cavities, severe external trauma, root canal infection, etc. In such instances, it is crucial you get the extracted tooth restored with a prosthetic at the earliest to save yourself from a whole lot of embarrassment and the drawbacks that could follow. If you’re looking for a simple and quick fix for this situation, we would suggest dental bridges.
As the name suggests, bridges are prosthetic teeth made from dental-grade ceramic material and used to bridge the gap left by a missing tooth. Most patients may have the assumption that replacing a missing tooth would be complicated and would require several visits to the dentist’s practice. But, bridges would prove you wrong, as they are the simplest means to replace a tooth. They are customized to match the exact appearance of your adjoining natural teeth and offer excellent features that are sure to impress you.
When you visit us for the initial diagnosis, we will thoroughly examine the factors that could affect your candidacy. Your overall health, condition of the gums and adjoining teeth, spacing available for the placement, etc., will be looked into closely. X-rays and highly-precise digital scans of the teeth will be taken to serve as a reference for fabricating the bridge. The data will be sent to a dental laboratory, where the restoration will be fabricated. Meanwhile, a temporary bridge will be placed to protect the prepared tooth surfaces.
During the next consultation, the bridge will be placed in the gap and checked for fit and comfort. If any changes are required, such as altering the shape and size of the bridge to make it fit seamlessly, we will tend to them. The restoration will be bonded using dental adhesives and hardened using a curing light. It will be polished to give it the perfect aesthetics.
If you’re looking for a reliable and long-lasting replacement for your lost tooth, we would highly recommend dental bridges. Reach out to us, and we can plan your treatment accordingly.
