The importance of bridges from your dentist in 75022

Tooth decay can lead to damaged or missing teeth. This can leave patients feeling uncomfortable about smiling and lower their confidence. At Jonathon J. Golab, D.D.S. in 75022, we specialize in restorative treatments such as dental bridges as a solution to restore a patient's natural smile after tooth loss.

If you are missing a tooth, you may be a candidate for a dental bridge. Everyone has a set number of teeth in their mouth. This creates the structure necessary for chewing and maintains the shape of your face. A missing tooth can lead to a shift in the teeth, causing problems with chewing and a drooping facial structure.

Bridges are composed of dental crowns (abutments) on both sides of the missing teeth that are attached to a false tooth (pontic) in between. Bridges are extremely successful in restoring patients' smiles, their ability to chew and speak naturally, the shape of their faces, and in preventing remaining teeth from shifting.

Bridges generally require two visits to complete, although they may require more. During the first visit, the abutment teeth are prepared by removing a portion of the enamel. Impressions are taken to serve as a model for the bridge. During the second visit, the bridge will be placed and checked for any necessary adjustments. If changes are required, multiple visits may be needed to adjust the fit and ensure proper bite.

Once in place, bridges require special care to clean under them carefully with a floss threader, in addition to the recommendations for daily oral hygiene and dental visits every six months. One of the biggest reason bridges fail is due to tooth decay. With proper oral hygiene, bridges can last an average of 5 to 7 years. Once in place, patients will be able to chew food normally. Foods that are soft and have been diced into small pieces are easiest until you adjust to the bridge.

Damaged or missing teeth can cause a loss of self-esteem and desire to smile. To learn more about restoring your smile with a dental bridge, call Dr. Golab's office today and schedule a consultation. A beautiful, natural looking smile is right around the corner.
