What Are Dental Bridges?
When one or a few of your teeth have fallen out, it's more than just a problem with appearance — gaps in your teeth may cause other teeth to shift. This may result in more tension in your bite, pain when you chew, or even trouble speaking. A bridge improves the health and appearance of your smile by filling in gaps using a false tooth that is supported by either your natural teeth, dental implants, or a combination of both. At Life Dental & Orthodontics in Walnut Creek, CA, we offer custom-made bridges with high-quality materials that will help to give you back your beautiful smile. If you have missing teeth, schedule an appointment to learn about your restoration options with dental bridges.
How Are Dental Bridges Placed?
Once your teeth are prepped and filed down, we will take digital images and dental impressions so your bridge can be created. If needed, a temporary bridge may be used while your custom one is being made. As soon as your dental bridge is ready, your mouth will be prepped with a numbing agent. Stronger sedation options are available for patients with dental fears, anxieties, or a strong gag reflex so you will be comfortable during the placement. Your bridge can be cemented into its position or attached to dental implants based on the support you and decide on during your consultation. We will adjust the fit of the bridge so it is comfortable in your mouth and stable.
Dental Bridges Reviews
I have been visiting the practice of Dr. Brian Hockel for the past 10 years and I am completely satisfied with my visits and the services rendered. In particular, the quality of care provided by the staff is above reproach and in particular the Dental Hygienists (thanks Nicole!) who have consistently provided quality care. The attention to detail is obvious and the results evident. An added bonus is the on site, full service Dental lab and fabrication facility operated by Steve Hockel, who works closely with Brian to ensure quality crowns, bridges, etc.I highly recommend Team Hockel!
