What Are Dental Bridges?
A tooth bridge is often used to restore one or more teeth that are missing from a patient’s smile. On either side of the gap, dental crowns will be used to attach the bridge, using the neighboring teeth to support the prosthetic tooth.
Benefits of Dental Bridges
When a patient is missing teeth, it can actually lead to further dental complications such as teeth shifting, spacing problems and bite issues. This ultimately can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and jaw irritation. Restoring your smile with a dental bridge can prevent these issues from occurring.
Our Dental Bridge Procedure
For your dental bridge procedure at our Katy, TX dental office, two visits are needed to properly prepare and place your dental work. Your first appointment will include the evaluation and preparation of your teeth and the second will consist of the placement of your finished bridge.
During your initial consultation at Dr. Teeth Dental Care in Katy, we will determine whether a dental bridge is the right treatment option for you. We will evaluate your teeth, gums, and bone along with taking x-rays and impressions. For your bridge to be stabilized, it needs a supporting foundation.
