About Dental Bridges in Morrow, GA

Missing one or more teeth can cause other teeth to become misaligned. This can result in more tension in your mouth, pain when eating, or trouble speaking. A bridge can help restore the health and appearance of your mouth by filling in gaps with a false tooth that is held in place by your other teeth, dental implants, or a combination of both. Our skilled team of dental professionals offers dental bridges made from the finest porcelain to restore your smile. If you have gaps in your smile, please schedule an appointment at MINT dentistry in Morrow, GA to learn more about replacing missing teeth with a bridge. Dental bridges can help rejuvenate your oral health and give you a smile that turns heads.

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Dental Bridge?

People with missing teeth may think the gap in their smile is just a cosmetic concern. However, there are a lot of consequences that a missing tooth or teeth can have on your overall dental health. Your mouth is carefully balanced so a missing tooth can affect the health and function of your mouth. Over time, a gap can allow your teeth to move, creating dental malocclusion, as well as atrophy in your jaw. To support the restoration, your other teeth must be free from disease and surrounded by healthy gums and solid bone tissue. In the event that several teeth have been lost, two or more dental implants could be placed to provide support for the bridge. The team of professionals at MINT dentistry will assess your teeth during your annual exam and consultation to help us create a customized plan for treatment that will restore your smile.

How Is a Dental Bridge Placed?

To begin your procedure, you will be invited to relax in a luxurious treatment chair. Once you've put on a pair of our MINT sunglasses and Beats headphones, the selected areas of your mouth will be anesthetized to ensure your comfort. Other sedation methods may be added to address a strong gag reflex or anxiety about the procedure. When your mouth is ready, one of our skilled MINT dental professionals will prepare the support teeth. A quick impression of the treatment site will then be captured and sent to a dental lab where your dental restoration will be crafted. A temporary bridge or restoration can be used while your custom restoration is completed. Once your restoration is sent back to our lab, your procedure will be scheduled by our support staff. Your bridge will either be cemented in place or attached to dental implants, depending on the method chosen at your initial consultation. We will carefully fit your bridge to make sure it stays comfortable and in place.

How Can I Care for My Bridge?

Immediately following your bridge placement, you should see an improvement in the appearance and function of your smile. If your teeth feel uncomfortable following the placement, you may need a follow-up visit. Your team will teach you how to maintain your bridge, including how to properly clean it. It is important to keep your bridge and mouth clean since cavities and plaque could still develop on the teeth supporting your restoration. With optimal oral care, your bridge may help for a long time. You should keep scheduling visits at MINT dentistry in Morrow, GA for your yearly oral examination and twice-yearly dental cleanings. During your exams, we will assess the condition of your bridge.
