What is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is a restoration that contains two dental crowns placed on either side of an artificial replacement tooth, called a pontic. The crowns are attached to your natural teeth on either side of the gap in your smile to hold the pontics in place. The restoration is stable and secure, so you can continue eating the foods that you enjoy, just be mindful of eating sticky, chewy, and hard items that could damage your restoration. Bridges are most commonly crafted from natural-looking materials such as porcelain, which makes them virtually indistinguishable from home-grown pearly whites.
The Benefits of Getting a Bridge
Dental bridges in Zionsville offer a simple and cost-effective tooth replacement solution that benefits your oral health. Not only will replacing your missing teeth restore your ability to chew and speak, but it will also hold the surrounding natural teeth in place. That way, you won’t have to worry about developing orthodontic issues like bite misalignment that would require additional treatment down the road. In addition to these advantages, dental bridges can improve your oral health by closing gaps in your mouth where plaque and bacteria can easily hide. When left untreated, this issue can increase your risk of developing gum disease and tooth decay, which could lead to losing additional teeth.
The Process of Getting a Bridge
Getting a dental bridge typically takes place over the course of two appointments. During your first appointment, Dr. Julovich will examine your mouth and X-rays and let you know whether you would make a good candidate for the procedure. After discussion the benefits and how a dental bridge can help restore the function and look of your smile, he will prepare your teeth on either side of the gap in your mouth and take impressions of the area to send off to the dental laboratory in order to craft your customized restoration. Once it arrives to the office, we’ll call you back in and permanently place it in your mouth, transforming and completing your grin.
