The Dental Bridge Process

Learn how can restore your smile seamlessly with a dental bridge from Dr. Amelia Aristodemo in this educational video.

The process of getting a dental bridge begins with a thorough consultation and examination to assess the specific needs of your dental situation. Here’s a step-by-step overview of what to expect:

  1. Consultation and Comprehensive Exam: The first step involves a detailed evaluation of the area where you have missing teeth. This includes a comprehensive exam to determine the number of teeth missing, the size of the gap, and the condition of the adjacent teeth that will support the bridge. We also assess the health of your gums to ensure they can support the restoration.
  2. Treatment Plan Presentation: Based on the findings from the initial exam, we will present you with a customized treatment plan. This plan will outline the steps involved in the bridge procedure and any preparatory work needed to ensure the success of the bridge.
  3. First Visit – Preparation: During your first appointment, the teeth next to the gap (abutment teeth) will be prepared. This involves reshaping these teeth to ensure they can securely hold the bridge. After the teeth are prepared, we will take an impression or digital scan of your mouth, which is sent to a dental laboratory where your custom bridge will be fabricated.
  4. Second Visit: Bridge Placement: On your second visit, we will fit and cement the bridge into place. This visit is crucial for ensuring the bridge fits comfortably and functions properly. We will also provide you with instructions on how to care for and maintain your bridge, including proper cleaning techniques and tips for oral hygiene.

Dental bridges are a reliable and effective solution for replacing missing teeth, restoring both the functionality and aesthetics of your smile.
