    If you have one or a few missing teeth, it is important to replace them to ensure your smile, alignment, and oral health are fully intact. Many patients opt for a dental bridge because it is a conservative, reliable, affordable solution. At Impressions Dental, we offer this customized dental restoration for missing teeth to complete your smile.

    How a Dental Bridge Works

    Missing teeth can be caused by a blow to the mouth, an accident, gum disease, or a tooth infection. The cause matters so your mouth can be treated properly and given time to heal before a dental bridge Chandler is completed. Your Chandler dentist will make sure of this before any repairs begin.

    Once it has been determined that you are a good candidate for a dental bridge, the procedure will go something like this:

    • Preparation: Most dental bridges are held in place on either side by customized porcelain crowns. The healthy teeth that neighbor the gap in your smile must be prepped so the natural-looking crowns fit seamlessly in place and anchor the bridge properly.
    • Impressions: Impressions of the teeth are taken so your Chandler dentist can get a clear image of your teeth and have a blueprint to send off to the dental lab technicians who will create the bridge.
    • Temporaries: It will take a few weeks for the final bridge to be created so temporary crowns will be fixed in place after the prep and while you wait to protect your teeth.
    • Restoration: The permanent dental bridge is cemented into place and so are the dental crowns. The high-quality materials used to create this repair look natural, deliver long-lasting results that blend in with the rest of your smile, and function just like regular teeth.

    The Importance of Replacing Missing Teeth

    You may think that a missing molar in the back of your mouth will go unnoticed and not interrupt your smile, but dental restorations aren’t just about making you look better – they’re about keeping your smile healthy. It is incredibly important to replace missing teeth because you’re not only missing the crown of the tooth, but its root system as well. This means:

    • The jawbone in the area where the missing tooth is will eventually weaken
    • Missing teeth make it more likely that neighboring teeth will fall out
    • Nearby healthy teeth will shift out of place to cover the hole and cause tissue damage
    • Shifting teeth can also lead to a poorly aligned bite

    One missing tooth means a mouthful of instability. Ultimately, a domino effect will begin to occur, and you will notice that that one missing tooth was the start of a host of oral health problems.

    Cost Factors for Dental Bridges

    The cost factors for dental bridges from your Chandler dentist will vary based on several factors:

    • Number of teeth being replaced
    • Location of the restoration
    • Materials being used

    A wide range of financing options are available to manage the cost of dental bridges. Some patients will use dental insurance for their restoration, others will need additional financial support like CareCredit. Many payment plans do not accrue interest, do not have pre-payment penalties, and can be qualified for even for those who do not have great credit.

    At Impressions Dental, we work with each of our patients to make the dental care you need affordable for you. It is so important to take care of your oral health – cost factors should not impede your ability to get the dental care you need.
