Dental Bridge Treatment in Merritt Island
Replacing missing teeth isn’t just a cosmetic consideration, it’s important to your overall oral health. If teeth aren’t replaced the bone can recede and gum disease can develop, risking your remaining teeth.
The gap can also allow other teeth to shift which can lead to misalignment and changes to the shape of your face.
A dental bridge is one of the treatments Your Family Dental in Merritt Island offers to replace missing teeth and transform your smile.
What is a dental bridge?
A dental bridge can replace a single tooth or several and are designed to fit seamlessly with the rest of your teeth for a natural, healthy smile.
A traditional bridge is one or more prosthetic teeth, anchored by two crowns that are placed on the adjacent teeth. This type of bridge is usually removable.
An implant secured bridge is secured with dental implants for a secure bite and is a permanent solution for missing teeth.
What can I expect at a dental bridge appointment?
When you make an appointment at Your Family Dental in Merritt Island, your dentist will examine your mouth and discuss all the options to replace your missing teeth with a dental bridge.
Next, your dentist will make an impression of your teeth to send to the lab who will craft a custom-fit dental bridge that will sit comfortably and seamlessly in your mouth.
Your anchor teeth will be prepared for the crowns if you’re having a traditional bridge or implants if you’re having an implant secured bridge.
When the lab sends the bridge back to us we make sure it fits you perfectly and your smile is complete.
Having gaps in your smile can affect your confidence and self-esteem which can go on to affect your personal and professional life. Schedule an appointment with Your Family Dental to arrange a consultation and find out about all the options we have to give you a great smile that will make you smile.
