Losing teeth can be a life changing thing. It can affect aspects of your life you didn’t know about, like speaking and eating. It can make it more difficult for people to understand you and make it so food is harder to enjoy. If you have lost teeth, whether one or several, you know how inconvenient and uncomfortable it can be. On top of those things, most people don’t think about this, but teeth give shape to the cheeks. Missing teeth can cause cheeks to collapse.
Fortunately, there are many dental restorative treatments that can replace your lost teeth. One of the most popular is dental bridges. Bridges can help you enjoy your food and speak again while giving you back your glowing smile. The bridge is a dental prosthetic made from ceramic and other materials shaped to replace the teeth you’ve lost. The teeth on either side are shaped as well to make a foundation that the bridge bonded to.
Every bridge is custom-made for each patient’s circumstances. When you come into our office to get your bridge, Dr. Tyler Carlson will take a casting of the missing teeth and the surrounding areas. The casting will then be sent to a dental lab where your crown will be made per the unique cast by a dental technician. The bridge can then be installed on your next visit.
