Who Is a Good Candidate for a Dental Bridge?

Patients with missing teeth believe that it’s just a cosmetic issue. However, there are several consequences that a missing tooth or teeth will have on your dental health. Your mouth is carefully balanced and a missing tooth can affect the function of your mouth as well as your overall health. Over time, a gap can allow your teeth to shift, leading to dental malocclusion, and atrophy in your jaw. To hold the restoration, your neighboring teeth must be free from disease and surrounded by ample bone tissue and healthy gums. In cases where consecutive teeth have been lost, a couple of dental implants may be positioned to hold the bridge. MINT dentistry's team of professionals will evaluate your oral health at your examination and consultation to help us create a customized plan for treatment to help you improve your appearance.

How Is a Dental Bridge Placed?

You can stretch out in one of our luxurious treatment chairs before your appointment. After putting on a pair of Beats headphones and MINT sunglasses, certain areas of your mouth will be numbed with local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. Stronger anesthesia or sedation methods may be added upon request if you have any dental anxieties or a strong gag reflex. Once you are ready, one of our skilled MINT dental professionals will prepare the teeth designated to support the bridge. An impression of the area will then be captured and passed on to a dental lab where your dental bridge will be crafted. A temporary bridge or restoration can be placed while your custom restoration is completed. Once your restoration is sent back to our lab, you will come back to have your bridge put in.Your bridge will either be cemented in place or attached to dental implants depending on the option selected during your consultation. Your dentist will adjust the fit of the bridge, so it fits snugly in place and feels natural.
