Dental bridges are one of the most common means of replacing missing natural teeth in the oral cavity following extractions, or tooth loss. Unlike dentures, these are fixed prostheses and therefore offer better support and stability during mastication without risks of displacement in the mouth. Bridges are fabricated using a combination of metal and porcelain to make the artificial teeth strong, and more aesthetically appealing. At Iowa Dental, we use only the finest materials and the research-driven techniques so our patients can walk out of the clinic feeling completely satisfied with our services.
Here is what you can expect from your dental bridging appointments:
The natural teeth on either side of the empty socket will be reduced in size slightly
Anaesthesia is administered to eliminate any chances of pain or discomfort
An impression is taken to record details of the segment
The impression and select tooth shade are sent to the laboratory for bridge fabrication
The new bridge is fixed on top of the natural teeth with the help of strong dental cements
If you have missing teeth in your oral cavity that you need replaced on a budget, then bridges are the perfect solution for you. Give us a call to book your appointment today!
