Russell Street Dental Associates offer treatment options for replacing missing teeth at our Worcester, MA dentist office. It is important to address missing teeth as quickly as possible to avoid the development of additional dental health concerns that may also limit your replacement options.
A dental bridge can be an excellent choice for replacing one or more lost teeth and restoring a functional smile. Dental bridges can be either fixed or removable, supported on both sides by natural teeth, dental implants, or a combination of the two. In most cases, Dr. Gauthier or Dr. Murray will recommend a fixed bridge for a secure, comfortable solution with no need for daily maintenance.
Dental Bridges: What To Expect
The dental bridge procedure will require 2-3 visits to our Worcester, MA dentist office. During the first visit, your Russell Street dentist will assess your overall dental health and take impressions of your teeth to be used in creating your custom dental bridge which will be made to blend with your natural smile. If necessary, a temporary bridge will be put in place until your final restoration is complete.
At the second visit, your dental bridge will be placed, adjusted for a secure fit and if fixed, permanently attached. Dr. Gauthier or Dr. Murray will ensure that your new bridge fits comfortably in your mouth and allows normal function for a lasting result.
