Replace Missing Teeth Sturdily with Personalized Dental Bridges
If you’ve lost one or more consecutive teeth, Dr. Thomas Dolan and Dr. Brendan Dolan may recommend a new dental bridge as the optimal solution. Bridges are designed to literally “bridge” the gap within your smile, restoring full function and helping to prevent remaining natural teeth from shifting out of position over time. Give our team a call today here in Wethersfield, CT if you’re ready to pursue a worthwhile tooth replacement!
The process of having a new dental bridge created typically takes two to three appointments. During the first visit, we will adjust your teeth to accommodate the placement of the new bridge and capture impressions to send to the dental lab; after receiving the finished restoration, you’ll return to Dolan Dental for a second appointment so that we can cement your new bridge in place and make any last-minute adjustments to ensure comfort and stability. Dental bridges are held in place within your smile by attaching dental crowns to nearby healthy teeth as “anchors.”
After the new bridge is in place, it’s likely going to take some time for patients to become accustomed to the new sensation. Within a few days, though, they should feel just like your regular teeth! Our team recommends that patients stick to a soft food diet early on in order to minimize any discomfort.
Over time, missing teeth can start to negatively affect your oral health, your smile’s ability to function, and your quality of life – so don’t wait!
