Dental Bridges in Georgetown, TX

Discover the Benefits of Dental Bridges at Trade Winds Dental

A missing tooth can affect your smile, the way you eat, and even your speech. Trade Winds Dental in Georgetown, TX offers dental bridges as a reliable and time-tested solution for replacing missing teeth. A dental bridge literally “bridges” the gap where one or more teeth may have been, using a prosthetic tooth that is anchored to neighboring teeth or implants.

When Is a Dental Bridge Needed?

A dental bridge may be recommended when you’re missing one or more teeth, either from trauma or extraction. Gaps left by missing teeth eventually cause the remaining teeth to rotate or shift into the empty spaces, resulting in a bad bite. This can also lead to gum disease and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. A bridge can help prevent these issues by filling the gap, maintaining the shape of your face, and alleviating stress on your bite.

What to Expect During the Dental Bridge Procedure

At Trade Winds Dental, our commitment to patient comfort and quality care is paramount. The process for getting a dental bridge usually involves two or more visits. During the first visit, the adjacent teeth are prepared. This involves recontouring these teeth by removing a portion of enamel to allow room for a crown. Impressions of the teeth are then made, which serve as a model from which the bridge, pontic (the replacement tooth), and crowns will be made. Our dentists will make a temporary bridge for you to wear to protect the exposed teeth and gums.

Caring for Your New Dental Bridge

Caring for your dental bridge is key to maintaining your oral health and extending the life of your prosthetic. Our dental team at Trade Winds Dental will show you how to use special flossing tools that allow you to clean under and around the bridge and crowns. As with natural teeth, keeping your remaining teeth healthy is vital to the longevity of your dental bridge.

At Trade Winds Dental, we understand the importance of a complete smile, both for your self-confidence and your oral health. Dental bridges have provided many of our patients with a renewed sense of confidence and an improved quality of life. If you’re missing one or more teeth and think a dental bridge might be right for you, call our Georgetown, TX. dental office today to schedule a consultation.
