A dental bridge is used to replace the gap created by missing teeth in between healthy teeth. Dental bridges are still one of the most common treatments at Aesthetic Dentistry of Palm City. Drs. Tom and Shannon Galinis have found that dental bridges are extremely stable, functional, esthetic and long lasting for their patients.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is a dental bridge right for me?
Dr. Tom or Shannon Galinis will be happy to discuss if a dental bridge is your best treatment option.
What should I expect when I have my bridge placed?
Your tooth will be properly restored and prepared for a bridge restoration. An impression will be taken to accurately record the prepared tooth and bite in order for the highly skilled lab technician to create a pristine, functional, stable and beautiful dental bridge. Dr. Tom or Shannon Galinis will make you a temporary bridge that will protect your tooth and maintain the space until the permanent bridge is ready to be cemented.
Do I need to follow any post-treatment care guidelines?
Your teeth will need time to heal following the bridge placement process, so it is normal for you to experience some sensitivity. Additionally, you may experience soreness in the gums surrounding your restorations, though this is usually manageable with ibuprofen and should subside within a few days.
