Dental Bridges in Oklahoma City

Is having a large gap in your mouth from missing teeth keeping you from greeting people with a nice smile? A full set of functional teeth is crucial to your dental and oral health, speech, appearance and even self-confidence. If you’re missing one or more teeth, chewing becomes more difficult, and you’re more susceptible to gum disease, speech disorders and a misshapen face.

A dental bridge is an excellent method for replacing missing teeth by using two adjacent teeth or implants with porcelain or metal crowns for supporting artificial teeth just above the gum. A dental bridge can help maintain shape of the face by supporting your cheeks and lips as well as distribute chewing forces across the entire dentition and reducing forces placed on teeth adjacent to the missing teeth.

The process is simple: First, the adjacent teeth will be prepared for the crowns. Then, an impression will be made during the appointment to allow for the dental bridge to be created. The patient uses a temporary dental bridge for about 2 weeks while the crowns are being finished. At the second and final visit, the temporary dental bridge will be removed and the crowns will be cemented.

A bridge replaces missing teeth with natural-looking, artificial teeth. The types of bridges are:

  • Fixed and removable bridges. These attach artificial teeth to the adjoining healthy teeth with crowns.

  • Implant bridge. This attaches artificial teeth under the gum tissue or directly to the jaw.

With proper dental care, dental bridges can last five to seven years and even longer in some cases.

Timberview Family Dentistry can help you determine the best bridge option for your mouth to improve your dental health and restore your happy smile. Call our Oklahoma City office today (405) 737-0404 for more information.
