Your Dental Bridges Appointment in Nashua
Tooth loss can make you feel self-conscious about your smile. Many people think that once a permanent tooth is lost that the corresponding gap in their smile is permanent. That’s not true, as that gap can be bridged.
Bridge the gap in your smile…literally.
Dental bridges are dental devices that are placed on the teeth to replace a missing tooth or teeth. A bridge will restore your complete set of teeth, helping you speak and chew properly again. By filling the gap(s) in your teeth, this prevents bone loss in your jawbone, which can lead to a loss of volume in your face in that area. Bridges also even out bite force that may have been changed by your missing teeth. Finally, bridges keep your remaining teeth from moving and trying to fill in the gap created by your missing teeth.
Discuss things with your dentist.
During your initial appointment with your dentist, the abutment teeth will be prepared. This will be done by removing a portion of the enamel on surrounding teeth to make room for the dental crowns that will be placed on them. Impressions of the teeth will be made, serving as a model when creating the dental bridge, pontic, and the tooth crowns. You will be given a temporary bridge to protect your teeth and gums, which will be left in place until the final bridge has been made by the laboratory.
During your second appointment, the temporary bridge will be removed and replaced with the permanent one. It will be adjusted to fit and ensure comfort and effectiveness. You may have to return to your dentist’s office to adjust the metal framework of the dental bridge and to assess your bite.
