When teeth are missing, neighboring teeth can begin to shift out of place in order to compensate for the missing space. Instead of allowing your smile to become uneven and increase your risk for future tooth loss, you can get a detailed, lifelike, and long-lasting dental bridge that makes smiling and chewing easy, without the risk of your teeth shifting out of place. Dr. Borsky takes the time to hear your concerns and make sure that your bite remains even after the bridge is placed. Give his office a call to schedule your next consultation!
If you are currently missing one or multiple consecutive teeth and you’re not currently dealing with gum disease or extensive tooth decay, chances are likely that you’re able to receive a dental bridge. During your consultation, Dr. Borsky will examine your mouth very closely and create a treatment plan that addresses all of your needs. It during is this consultation that you’ll be able to address any concerns or questions you have before beginning your treatment.
Once we’ve confirmed that dental bridges are the best tooth replacement option for you, we’ll numb your mouth with local anesthetic, gently modify the enamel of your existing teeth so they can act as an anchor for your bridge, then capture an impression of your smile and send it to an offsite dental lab. There, your permanent bridge will be designed and created. After about two weeks, you’ll come back to our office to have the permanent bridge fitted.
