Are you missing some teeth? Is it affecting your smile and your confidence? Maybe it’s time to find a dentist in Gettysburg that can help with your bridge and get your smile back.
What are Dental Bridges?
A dental bridge fills in the gap where a tooth or teeth used to be. Crowns on each side of the gap anchor the replacement tooth in between. The replacement tooth is made up of a number of materials, which could be:
- Combination of these materials
Benefits of a Bridge
The American Academy of Implant Dentistry estimates around 15 million people in the country have bridges to fill in the gaps due to missing teeth. Besides replacing teeth, there are numerous reasons why patients choose this route. The benefits of a bridge include:
- Improving the ability to speak and chew
- Improving your smile
- Preventing shifting of teeth
- Preserving the facial shape
- Realigning your bite
As a bridges dentist in Gettysburg, we understand that dental procedures can result in some (or a lot of) anxiety, and we make sure to educate our patients about the procedure so you know what to expect. During the first visit, we prepare the teeth the crowns will be placed on, we take the impressions of your teeth, and place a temporary bridge in the mouth.
The new bridge will be placed and adjusted during the next visit. Additional visits may be needed to recheck the fit before it is cemented permanently. All of this is done in the comfort of our office, making sure all your needs are being met.
