Dental Bridges

 

Oral Surgeon Milwaukee. A non-removable dental bridges can restore your mouth to normal functioning and appearance by replacing any missing teeth. It also improves the overall health of your entire mouth by keeping your surrounding teeth in the correct position and also helps maintain the overall support structure of the jaw and face.

 

Reasons for a fixed bridge:

  • Fill space of missing teeth.
  •  Maintain facial shape.
  •  Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
  •  Restore chewing and speaking ability.
  •  Restore your smile.
  •  Upgrade from a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance.

What does getting a fixed bridge involve?

Getting a bridge usually requires two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a portion of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a highly accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for several weeks until your next appointment.

At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit. Occasionally your dentist may only temporarily cement the bridge, allowing your teeth and tissue time to get used to the new bridge. The new bridge will be permanently cemented at a later time.

You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of the procedure. Proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new, permanent bridge.
