Dental Bridge North Syracuse, NYAt Mahar Dental, we believe that you deserve the very best in oral health treatments. One of the ways that we can bring value to our patients is by offering some tooth replacement options. Losing teeth can be very difficult for a variety of reasons. Eating and speaking become difficult, and you lose self-confidence when you know your smile doesn’t look as good as it once did. Dental bridges are one of the best ways to replace teeth permanently. We can use your natural teeth or a dental implant to support your dental bridge.
What is a dental bridge?A dental bridge is a permanent dental prosthesis that can replace 1 to 4 consecutive missing teeth. If you have a row of missing teeth, a dental bridge can fill the gap in a way that will allow you to eat and speak as you did with your natural teeth. A dental bridge is made to look just like your real teeth. Because the prosthesis is made to look like a row of teeth, each “tooth” will be connected to it’s neighbor to enhance the strength of the prosthesis.
Cases Dental Bridges Can SolveThere are a few different scenarios that dental bridges can fix:
Implant Retained Dental BridgesWhile we can mount a permanent dental bridge to your natural teeth, we prefer to anchor them to dental implants. The reason we prefer dental implant supported bridges is a natural tooth must be significantly altered to support a fixed bridge. A dental implant allows us to restore health to your mouth and avoid permanently altering your natural, healthy teeth.
Tooth Replacement Made EasyReceiving a fixed bridge requires at least two trips to our office to achieve. The first trip we will take impressions of your mouth that will help us to create the dental bridge. We will also prepare your mouth to receive the bridge, whether that means placing a dental implant or altering your natural teeth.
On your second trip to our office, we will affix the permanent bridge in your mouth and ensure that it fits into your bite properly.
Please call us today at (315) 766-2770 to schedule an appointment. Remember, we encourage an appointment for regular cleanings and examinations at least once every six months to keep your mouth happy and healthy!
