Before and After patient Best Results from real patients

The patient came in for a consultation to replace some missing teeth due to an accident many years ago. Implants were not suitable, but rather, a bridge was performed that was done in just two visits, making him smile with confidence.

What Is A Dental Bridge?

Dr. Saadi will recommend dental bridges to replace missing or failing teeth. Like architectural bridges, dental bridges come in different designs, depending on the number of teeth lost, location, budget, and needs. 

Traditional bridges are held in place with anchor teeth (abutments) on either side of the gap. The replacement teeth (pontics) are custom-fitted to “sit” seamlessly in the edentulous gap. However, for optimal support, the abutment teeth must be crowned. This means the abutment tooth must be shaved to enable the crown to fit snugly. 

Sometimes, you may not have healthy abutments, or you simply don’t want your otherwise healthy teeth altered. If you want a more “tooth-saving” option, we recommend an implant-supported bridge. This bridge type is supported by an implant secured in the jawbone. Implant-supported bridges are incredibly stable and prevent bone loss in the area placed.

The dental bridge procedure

Many conventional dental bridges require at least two appointments. We’ll examine your oral health during the first appointment to ensure a bridge is a good option. If yes, we’ll carefully reshape the abutment teeth to create space for dental crowns. 

Next, the dentist will take digital images of your mouth to create a model for our dental lab during fabrication. Your dental bridges take 2-3 weeks to make, a period in which you’ll wear provisional restorations to protect your prepped teeth. 

You’ll return to our office for placement when your bridge is ready. We’ll try your new bridge, making any required adjustments to ensure a precise fit. It may take some time to acclimate to your bridge, but once you do, you’ll forget they are a replacement.
