About Dental Bridges in Canton, GA

If you have a missing tooth, not only can that become a cosmetic concern, but it can cause the other teeth in your mouth to become misaligned. This can result in increased tension in your jaw, pain during chewing, or trouble speaking. A bridge improves your oral health and the appearance of your smile by filling in gaps with a false tooth, which will be supported by your surrounding teeth, dental implants, or both. Our skilled team of doctors and dental professionals offers dental bridges made from the finest porcelain material to repair your smile. If you are missing a tooth or teeth, schedule a consultation at MINT dentistry in Canton, GA to learn more about bridges. Custom dental bridges can restore your mouth and give you a smile that turns heads.

Who Is a Good Candidate for a Dental Bridge?

A majority of the time, someone that has a missing tooth just believes that it is a cosmetic concern and doesn’t realize that it has an effect on their oral health. However, there are many consequences that a missing tooth or teeth can have on your oral health. Your mouth is carefully balanced and gaps will affect the function of your mouth, as well as your overall health. Over time, a gap can cause your teeth to shift, leading to bite problems, and atrophy in your jawbone. To hold the bridge, your nearby teeth should be disease-free and surrounded by sufficient bone levels and healthy gum tissues. When several teeth have been lost, a series of dental implants may be placed to hold the bridge. Our MINT dentistry team will evaluate your teeth at your examination and consultation to help us create a personalized treatment plan that will restore your smile.

How Is a Dental Bridge Placed?

Before we begin your treatment, we invite you to stretch out and get completely comfortable in one of our massaging treatment chairs. Once you've put on a pair of our MINT sunglasses and Beats headphones, certain areas of your mouth will be numbed with local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. Stronger sedation options can be used upon request if you have anxiety, fear, or a strong gag reflex. As soon as you are ready, our MINT team will prep the support teeth. A simple impression of the treatment site will then be captured and sent to a dental laboratory where your dental restoration will be fabricated. A temporary bridge or restoration can be used while your custom restoration is completed. When your restoration is done, you will come back to have your bridge put in. The bridge will either attach to the implant posts or be cemented to the surrounding teeth, depending on the support selected at your initial consultation. Your dentist will carefully adjust the fit of your bridge so it feels right in your mouth and remains in place.

How Can I Care for My Bridge?

An immediate improvement in the function and appearance of your smile should be noticed after a dental bridge placement. If your mouth feels uncomfortable after the initial placement, you may need a follow-up at our office. We will show you how to maintain your new restoration, particularly how to clean it. It's important to keep your mouth and bridge clean because tooth decay could still form on the support teeth. With optimal oral care, your restoration can help for many years. We encourage you to keep scheduling regular visits at MINT dentistry in Canton, GA for your annual oral examination and twice-yearly professional cleanings. At your checkups, we will assess the health and wear of your bridge.
