Know What a Dental Bridge Does for Your Smile

Posted .

If you are missing one or more teeth, dental bridges are a great option to fill that space in your mouth. Here at Todd Tibbs, we want to relieve any discomfort and pain that is the result of these missing teeth. Visit our office in Salisbury, North Carolina, right away if you are experiencing a high amount of pain due to missing teeth or any dental pain.

The installment of a dental bridge allows for restoration in your smile. They can reestablish your chewing and speaking abilities without the discomfort of a missing space. The first simple step you must take towards placing this artificial replacement is visiting your dentist. After making that step, your dentist will take care of you by fixing your smile after determining which replacement is best for you.

There is a variety of replacement artificial teeth including a cantilever (an artificial tooth connected to one crown placed on a surrounding tooth), a traditional bridge (crowns placed on surrounding teeth connected to the artificial tooth), or a Maryland bridge (an artificial tooth bonded to surrounding teeth).

Measurements will be sent to a dental factory, making your new bridge, and sent back to your dentist’s office. You will then meet your dentist again to have it installed. Our office will be sure to arrange a follow-up appointment to ensure the tooth fits comfortably. Call today at 704-633-1799 to contact our dental clinic, so Dr. Todd Tibbs and our dental team can give you your best and most comfortable smile yet!
