Restorative Dental Procedures

Many people who are missing multiple teeth elect to have a dental bridge installed as opposed to choosing dentures or dental implants. Whether you should choose a dental bridge over the other options available is determined by your preference, sensitivity to cost, and desire for convenience.

What Is A Dental Bridge?

A dental bridge is an appliance which is permanently affixed to your mouth by means of attaching it to an “anchor tooth” on either side of the gap which needs to be filled. The anchor tooth can be one of your real teeth or it could be an artificial tooth attached to a dental implant.

Is A Bridge For Me?

A dental bridge has some advantages over other types of dental restoration. Dental bridges look more realistic than partial dentures and—once the installation is complete—tend to be more comfortable to wear. At the same time a dental bridge is more affordable than having individual dental implants installed in the gap where the bridge would go. Another advantage of a dental bridge is that it is faster than having dental implants put in, as dental implants can take as long as six months from start to finish for the entire process.

PROCEDURES FOR DENTAL BRIDGE

Impression & Fit

Examination and impression of your teeth. Preparation of teeth and temporary bridge supplied until permanent bridge is completed..

Permanent Bridge


Proper fit and adjustment of permanent bridge will be made during this visit to make sure you are absolutely comfortable with your restored smile.

Preventative Maintenance

Ongoing normal preventative maintenance such as brushing and flossing to ensure long life of your new bridge.

What Is The Procedure For Getting A Dental Bridge?

When you come to our office for a visit, we will take an impression of your teeth; using this impression, or mold, allows us to know the size and shape that the bridge will need to take so that when you bite down it will fit perfectly into your bite pattern.

We will prepare your anchor teeth, usually done by resurfacing them so that they may accept a crown. Before you leave, we will give you a temporary bridge to wear while your permanent bridge is being prepared.

After your bridge has been created you will return to our office where we will check the bridge to ensure proper fit and comfort. If any adjustments are necessary, we will make them at that time.

We will install a crown over each of your anchor teeth and attach the bridge to the crowns. The result will be a dental reconstruction that looks, feels, and performs like your real teeth.

Before you leave we will give you instructions for the care and maintenance of your new bridge. If you follow these instructions and continue with regular brushing, flossing, and visits to the dentist for
cleaning, your bridge should last you for many years.

Testimonials

Absolutely wonderful experience. Dr. Woodyard explains everything very well and is a true professional. The whole staff is very accommodating and caring.


Jay S

Dr. Woodyard has been my general dentist for more than 10 years and he’s always been so concerned and professional. He is up to date on all the newest innovative treatments. He has done several crowns for me and I was able to get it all done in one day since they were made with the latest technology in house by Dr. Woodyard. I would highly recommend him for all dental needs.

Melissa W

Best dentist I've been to! Very professional operation in all respects. Love that Dr. Woodyard does the majority of usual procedures right in house -- including crowns and root canals. Getting a crown in one visit is truly amazing. Mary is a wonderful hygienist with a solid knowledge of her area of expertise. You won't be disappointed!
