Dental Bridge Treatment in Hammond

dental crown hammond la - advanced dental

A dental bridge is a non-removable crown used to replace missing teeth. It is made of porcelain, gold or alloy, dental bridges serve as anchors for teeth and are supported by implants or the individual’s teeth. Conventional bridges typically require the shaping of the teeth around the missing tooth. Then a crown is placed on the shaped teeth. Here at Advanced Dental Concepts, we offer dental crowns and bridges treatments.

 

There are three types of bridges.

Conventional bridges: The dentist will create a crown for the implant on either side of the missing tooth and apply the pontic in between. They are the most common type of bridges and are made of metal-fused ceramic or porcelain.

Resin-bonded bridges: Also known as Maryland bridge, they are made in a variety of materials such as plastic and porcelain fused to metal. Resin-bonded bridges are usually applied on one side of the bridge.

Cantilever bridges: Only applied on adjacent teeth on one side of the missing tooth. It is not as common as they used to be due to more options for patients to avail of different types of dental bridge procedures. It is discouraged to put the bridges at the back of the mouth because it will put too much weight on the other teeth, causing damage.

 

Dental bridges are highly durable and can last many years.

Reasons for a fixed bridge:

  • Fill in the space of missing teeth.
  • Prevent remaining teeth from shifting out of position.
  • Restore chewing and speaking ability.
  • Restore your smile.
  • Maintain facial shape.

Am I the Right Candidate for this Service?

Your dentist will examine your gum’s health and teeth first if you are a candidate for this procedure. If you are qualified to avail of this bridge service, the dentist will discuss the best options for your particular case. They will also assess the right tooth cap for you.

 

Candidates for dental bridges:

  • Patients with cavity free abutment teeth
  • Patients who have damaged teeth alongside a healthy tooth or an implant
  • Patients who just had tooth extraction
  • Patients who seek a fuller smile or tooth structure
  • Children born with abnormal jaw where no permanent teeth could grow

 

How Long Do They Last?

A dental bridge can last up to 15 years and even longer than that. For it to last this long, good oral hygiene and regular checkups are essential.

Will It Be Hard To Eat?

It’s the other way around – a dental bridge can make eating so much easier. However, until you become used to the bridge, eating soft food cut into small pieces is highly recommended.

Will It Change How I Talk?

Again, just like with eating, a dental bridge will actually help you improve your speech.

Caring For Your Dental Bridge

Brushing at least twice a day, flossing, and using a mouthwash on a daily basis will help properly maintain your dental bridge. This can also prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

Visiting your dentist regularly is also very important to keep your dental bridge properly maintained. You should also consider setting a balanced diet.

I found the right orthodontist for me here in Hammond, LA here at this dental facility. When it comes to oral health, I really want the best and I really did search the city for the best ortho for me. When I got here, I am so happy and relieved that I finally found the one for me. She was very attentive and she made me feel very comfortable. The treatment is also very effective and now I have straight,white teeth!

I was advised to see an orthodontist to correct my bite. I am glad I saw your website and read some of the reviews. By reading those customers testimonials, I decided to go visit your dentist and I am not disappointed by the service you have given me. Added factors are the place is clean and well maintained.

THE DENTISTS AND STAFF ARE AMAZING! I haven't been to the dentist in 10+ years because my last visit was so traumatizing. Recently my tooth broke and another was fractured due to me constantly grinding them in my sleep. I couldn't have wished for better service. They were so nice and kind to me. The dentist kept me informed of everything that was going on while she was doing it. The office was really clean and comfortable. I even got a call a few days later to see how I was doing and was informed that I could come in for a follow up appointment to check the healing process free of charge! I would definitely recommend them and will be going back on a regular basis. Extremely satisfied customer....Donna Evans
