Replace Missing Teeth with Dental Bridges in South Edmonton

As your complete reconstructive and restorative family dentistry, Saddleback Dental Centre is well versed in using dental bridges to replace missing teeth. A fixed dental bridge is a false tooth which is fused between two porcelain crowns to fill an area left by a missing tooth. Unlike partial dentures, bridges are not removable.

Importance of Replacing Teeth

Saddleback Dental Centre stresses the importance of replacing missing teeth. When a tooth is missing, other teeth will shift to compensate for the loss. Without proper support, they can work their way out of the socket. The shifting process allows harmful plaque to collect in stretched sockets and other hard-to-reach places. This can lead to cavities and gum disease or even worse consequences. As your bite changes, your jaw joint can be damaged.

Enjoy a Natural Looking and Well Fitting Bridge

When you come back for your second appointment, we will check the fit of your new bridge and ensure your bite feels natural and comfortable. When the fit is exactly right, we will bond the bridge in place. With discerning attention to detail, we will match the natural color of your adjacent teeth to make sure the bridge looks as natural as possible. With good oral hygiene, the bridge should last 10 years or more.

Custom Dental Bridges in Edmonton

You can avoid unwanted consequences by replacing your missing tooth with a bridge. Our skilled Edmonton dentists prepare the teeth on both sides of the open space for crowns and then make an impression to create the model for the false tooth. A temporary bridge is then created for you to wear while your permanent bridge is being made.
