Dental Bridges

Dental BridgesDental bridges restore the appearance of your smile, allow you to eat and speak properly and comfortably, preserve your facial muscles and prevent sagging or sinking associated with tooth loss and evenly distribute bite forces while maintaining proper alignment. Our expert in dental bridges in Phoenix may recommend a dental bridge if you are missing one tooth or a few teeth next to one another.

The bridge is designed to span the gap. Several types of bridges are available, but the most common bridges include the traditional dental bridge, which is supported by dental crowns placed on abutment teeth, and implant-supported bridges, which are supported by dental implants rather than natural teeth. Our Phoenix dental bridges expert can help you decide which one is best for your needs.

Dental Bridges Phoenix

If you are a candidate for a traditional bridge, the abutment teeth will need to be prepared and contoured so that the crowns will fit comfortably over them. Candidates for implant-supported bridges will need to have the implants placed first so that the bone can fuse with them adequately. A temporary bridge will be placed until the dental laboratory has crafted the final restoration. Our expert in dental bridges in Phoenix will then bond them securely onto your teeth or dental implants.

Dental bridges are designed to look much like your own teeth and can last 15 years or longer. Good dental hygiene can ensure a longer lifespan. Brush twice a day, and floss daily using a floss threader tool to clean around the bridge. Regular checkups with our Phoenix dental bridges expert can help you keep your bridge and your whole smile in better condition. You may need to eat soft foods for a few days until you get used to the feel of your new bridge, but most people adjust quickly and find that they can eat more comfortably and enjoy their favorite foods again once their bridge is in place.

You do not have to settle for unsightly gaps in your smile. Dental bridges may just be the right restoration for you. Give us a call today to find out more or to schedule your appointment with our dentist in Phoenix.
