Restore a Tooth With a Dental Bridge

Posted .

Are you missing one or more permanent teeth? Are the gaps in your smile making things like chewing and speaking difficult? Our dentists may suggest a dental bridge to restore the beauty and function of your smile.

Dental Bridge Placement
Our dentists will first shape the abutment teeth to allow room for the dental bridge. Then impressions will be taken of the missing tooth and the surrounding teeth. These impressions will allow your dental bridge to be constructed specifically for your smile. Once your dental bridge is ready, our dentists will check the fit and color and make any needed tweaks. Then the bridge will be permanently cemented in place.

Dental Bridge Care
If cared for well, your new dental bridge can last for 10 years or more before needing to be replaced. To properly care for your dental bridge, simply practice consistent, efficient oral hygiene. Brush your teeth twice daily, floss once a day and visit our office at least twice a year for professional cleanings and exams. During these appointments, we can check the status of your dental bridge.

We invite you to call Louisiana Dental Center at (985) 735-0078 today to learn more about dental bridges in Bogalusa, Louisiana, and to set up your next visit.
