What is the Process of getting a Dental Bridge?

The first step in the making of a dental bridge is to conservatively reduce in size the abutment teeth. This is done so that the material used for the bridge can be properly fitted to the abutment teeth. The goal is to restore the size and shape of the original teeth in a correct alignment and contact with the opposing teeth. Next, impressions of the shaped teeth are made and sent off to a dental laboratory for the construction of the bridge. The new dental bridge usually takes approximately 2 weeks to be completed. To ensure protection and esthetics, a temporary bridge is fitted while the final bridge is being constructed. The temporary bridge will be removed, and the final bridge permanently cemented, when the final bridge is complete.

What are the Benefits of a Dental Bridge?
  • Restores function
  • Restores esthetics
  • Prevents adjacent teeth from drifting out of place
  • Occupies the spaces that would otherwise leave neighboring teeth prone to tooth decay
Who is the best candidate for a dental bridge?

A person with one or more missing teeth and good overall dental hygiene is the prime candidate for a dental bridge. It is important to pay special attention to home hygiene routines, especially flossing under the bridge. It is important to complete dental visits, including professional cleanings, every six months.

A dental bridge is an excellent option to fill in spaces where teeth once were. Call SmileCode Dental today at (403) 453-4557 to see whether a dental bridge is right for you.
