Are you missing some of your teeth? Whether you had facial trauma that caused tooth loss, or you lost them due to gum disease, it’s important to replace missing teeth as soon as possible. At Caldwell Dental Care, we provide two types of bridges: partial and fixed.
These are prosthetic teeth that replace one or more missing teeth. They fit around the remaining teeth which are still healthy. Benefits of partial dentures include:
Improve the Look of Your Teeth | Partial bridges can fill in the spaces left by your missing teeth, improving your smile and appearance.
Less Expensive | Removable partial bridges tend to be less expensive than
Fixed (non-removable) dentures.
Improve Your Speech | Your speech can be affected by missing teeth. Partial bridges can make it easier to speak clearly.
Reversible | Should a patient choose to upgrade from a removable denture it simply is removed and another approach can be used.
Fixed bridges are bonded to existing teeth or secured with implants.
Benefits of fixed dentures include:
Long Lasting | Fixed bridges can last anywhere from ten to fifteen years or more.
Regular Hygiene Care | With fixed bridges, you don’t have to remove them to clean. can continue your regular oral hygiene routine.
Prevent Drift | A fixed bridge can prevent existing teeth from drifting into the space left behind by missing teeth.
Comfortable | They are so comfortable you may not remember where in your mouth the bridge is if asked.
How Does It Work?
First, come in for a consultation. Once we’ve decided which type of bridge is best suited to your needs, we will take the mold and send it off to the laboratory. When the laboratory has returned the completed bridgework, we will either attach the bridge, or in the case of a partial, ensure fit. It can take approximately two weeks between appointments.
