Dental Bridges Palmdale

Dental Bridges Diagram

When a tooth (or several teeth) have been lost, there are several replacement options to consider. However, dental bridges are often the best method available. Based in Palmdale, CA, Boulevard Dental, Dr. Gobrial provides patients with general dentistry services and winning care throughout every step of the restoration process.

What Do Dental Bridges Do?

Dental bridges palmdale are designed to literally bridge the gap that has been left behind by a lost tooth or teeth. The bridge itself is a fixed device that is cemented to the top of remaining teeth or existing implants and is held in place using a crown. They are designed to replicate the function and appearance of the lost tooth or teeth.

There are several types of dental bridges to consider, these are:

Traditional bridges: A fake tooth (pontic) is fitted into the gap and kept in place by two crowns, which are added to the teeth sitting either side. This is the most common method by far.

Cantilever bridges: This bridge is used when teeth are only found on one side of the gap. The bridge, therefore, is supported by the adjacent tooth that still exists.

Maryland bridges: Held in place by porcelain or metal, this type of dental bridge doesn’t require support from surrounding teeth and is often the quickest treatment available.

The right type of bridge will vary from patient to patient and will depend on the amount of teeth lost. Likewise, someone that has lost an incisor may be better suited to a different treatment than a client that has lost a molar.

Either way, they are ultimately designed to bring the mouth back to the condition it was in prior to the loss. At Boulevard Dental, Dr. Gobrial takes great pride in finding the best solution to make that happen.

The Benefits Of Dental Bridges

Dental bridges palmdale are a fairly common treatment choice, with Dr. Gobrial actively preferring this option over many others. Some of the reasons for selecting this method include:

  • They help restore the appearance of your smile.
  • The false tooth/teeth can be made to match your natural smile.
  • They correct your bite by redistributing the pressure in a natural fashion.
  • The crowns and pontics prevent other teeth from moving out of position.
  • They help the mouth maintain its natural shape.
  • The removal of the gaps aids speaking and chewing.

What To Expect During The Process

While the exact process may vary slightly, all treatments follow a basic blueprint. The first trip to the dental office will involve teeth being prepared for future works while impressions will be created and sent to the lab, so that the bridge can be manufactured in time for the next visit.

A temporary bridge will be put in place to avoid further problems, and this will be replaced by the permanent one on the second visit. Once this has been done, you’ll be back to eating, speaking, and feeling like normal.

This is certainly one of the best ways to replace lost teeth. Whichever type of dental bridge is required, the first step to repairing the damage is to call our offices today.
