What are Dental Bridges?
A dental bridge is essentially a device that holds a replacement tooth called a dental crown in place over the gap where your natural tooth once rested. The bridge grasps onto teeth that neighbor the gap, becoming a natural anchor while suspending the dental crown, in place.
The crown and bridge replace the missing tooth to restore the full function of your smile.
How do our San Antonio Dentist place them?
In preparation for dental bridges, our San Antonio TX dentist will evaluate the structure of your teeth and the alignment of your bite in order to determine the best course of action. We ensure the replacement dental crowns and bridge do not interfere with the natural bite.
After your evaluation, the doctor will have the crown designed and fitted to match the formation of your mouth. The doctor will insert a temporary crown into the bridge until the final one has been created. When the final crown has been completed, the bridge will be put in placein place. These will be attached to your neighboring teeth, thus restoring your bite!
