Your Downtown Calgary Choice for Dental Bridges!

If you have missing teeth, and are looking for an effective way to restore them back to their natural and most ideal look, Canterra Dental is pleased to offer dental bridges.

What is a Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge, also known as a fixed denture, is a dental restoration used to replace a missing tooth by permanently joining to adjacent teeth or dental implants. There are different kinds of dental bridges, depending on how they are made and the way they are anchored to adjacent teeth. Bridges are most commonly constructed outside of the mouth and cemented into place afterward.

What is the Process of Getting a Bridge?

Before a bridge is placed in the mouth, the teeth on either side of the missing tooth or teeth (the abutment teeth) will be conservatively reduced in size. This is done to accommodate the material to be used to restore the size and shape of the original teeth so that there is correct alignment and contact with the opposing teeth. Next, an impression is taken and sent to the lab for processing. The new bridge is usually ready within 1-2 weeks. To ensure teeth are protected and aesthetics are maintained, a temporary bridge is made in the office and placed in the mouth. Once the final bridge is complete, the temporary bridge is removed, and the final bridge is permanently cemented into place.

What are the benefits of a Bridge?

A bridge restores function and esthetics, while also preventing the surrounding teeth from drifting out of position, and fills spaces that would otherwise leave surrounding teeth susceptible to tooth decay. The best candidate for a dental bridge is someone with one or more missing teeth and good overall dental hygiene. It is important to pay special attention to home hygiene, particularly flossing under the bridge. Furthermore, it is important to complete dental visits, including professional cleanings, regularly.

A dental bridge is an excellent treatment option for missing teeth. If you think you might benefit from a bridge, call Canterra Dental at (403) 237-6611 to set up a consultation today.
