Dental Bridge Solutions in Brownstown Charter Twp., MI

No one should have to live with missing teeth or unwanted gaps in their smile, and with dental bridge implants from Jaffe Dental Group, you don’t have to. A dental bridge is a customized prosthetic device composed of one or more artificial teeth securely held in position by dental implants or adjacent natural teeth.

Dental bridges effectively replace missing teeth, close unwanted tooth gaps, and restore the appearance and functionality of your smile. Beyond aesthetics, a dental bridge can also prevent teeth from shifting, fix speech issues, and alleviate symptoms related to temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ). Whether you’re dealing with a single missing tooth or multiple gaps, dental bridge implants offer a durable, visually pleasing, and functional dental restoration that enhances your oral health.

The Dental Bridge Procedure Explained

The dental bridge process involves a series of visits to our Brownstown Charter Twp. office. In your first appointment, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by carefully removing a portion of enamel to make room for the crowns that will support the bridge. We use local anesthesia during this process to ensure your comfort.

Next, a precise mold of your teeth is taken and sent to a laboratory where the bridge will be made. A temporary bridge is custom-made and installed until your next visit to protect your oral function and appearance during this step.

During the second appointment, we will check and adjust your permanent bridge before cementing it in place. Sometimes, your dentist may use temporary cement to allow your teeth and surrounding tissues time to adapt. Once this happens, you will return to have your bridge permanently cemented in place.


Advantages of Dental Bridge Implants

Dental bridges provide a range of significant advantages. Not only do they restore your smile, giving you the confidence to show your teeth again, but they also play a vital role in enhancing your ability to chew and speak comfortably.

Furthermore, dental bridges help preserve the natural shape of your face and evenly distribute the forces in your bite, preventing strain on neighboring teeth. This protects the health of your existing teeth and stops them from shifting and causing misalignment issues that can affect your overall bite. Dental bridges can also relieve TMJ symptoms, relieving jaw discomfort.
