Dental Bridges in Powder Springs, GA

Understanding Dental Bridges

What Are Dental Bridges?

Dental bridges are a reliable and effective solution for replacing one or more missing teeth. A bridge consists of one or more artificial teeth (pontics) anchored in place by crowns attached to the natural teeth or implants on either side of the gap. This not only restores the appearance of your smile but also maintains the alignment of your remaining teeth and supports proper chewing and speaking functions.

Types of Dental Bridges

At Stress-Free Dentistry, we offer several types of dental bridges to suit your specific needs:

  • Traditional Bridges: These are the most common type, using crowns on adjacent teeth to anchor the bridge.
  • Cantilever Bridges: Used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth.
  • Maryland Bridges: These use a metal or porcelain framework bonded to the back of adjacent teeth, requiring less alteration to your natural teeth.
  • Implant-Supported Bridges: For patients with multiple missing teeth, implants can provide a stable and durable foundation for a bridge.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

Restored Functionality

Dental bridges allow you to chew and speak properly by filling the gaps left by missing teeth. This restoration of functionality helps you enjoy a varied diet and communicate effectively without difficulty.

Enhanced Aesthetics

A well-crafted dental bridge restores your smile, giving you the confidence to show your teeth without hesitation. The artificial teeth are designed to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, providing a natural and attractive appearance.

Improved Oral Health

By filling in the gaps left by missing teeth, dental bridges prevent the remaining teeth from shifting out of position, which can lead to bite problems and further dental issues. This helps maintain the overall health and alignment of your teeth.

Our Dental Bridge Process

Consultation and Examination

Your journey begins with a thorough consultation with Dr. Stephen Wilson. During this visit, we will assess your oral health, discuss your treatment goals, and determine the best type of bridge for your needs. We'll also take impressions and use advanced imaging technology to plan your treatment.

Preparation and Placement

For traditional and cantilever bridges, the adjacent teeth will be prepared by removing a small amount of enamel to accommodate the crowns. For implant-supported bridges, implants will be placed in the jawbone to anchor the bridge securely. Temporary bridges may be placed to protect the prepared teeth while your custom bridge is being fabricated.

Final Placement and Adjustment

Once your custom bridge is ready, it will be fitted, adjusted, and permanently cemented in place. Dr. Wilson will ensure that the bridge fits comfortably and functions properly, making any necessary adjustments for a perfect fit.
