What to Expect
In preparation for the bridge, our dentists will drill down the support tooth to create adequate space for the dental crown. After the teeth are prepped for the crown, digital X-rays will be taken so that a thorough visual can be attained and these, as well as the hard impressions will be sent to the dental lab where the permanent bridge is manufactured. Our dentists will cover the individual's teeth with temporary abutments for protection until the permanent bridge is ready. Once the bridge is ready, our dentists will cement the bridge and realign the fit for a normal look and comfort.
Dental bridges can last for up to 15 years as long as consistent dental exams at DentalWorks - Northville in Northville, MI continue each year. It is also important that in addition to yearly check-ups, patients adhere incorporate a thorough at-home oral health regime. This includes, flossing, brushing, and fluoride, which will allow the bridge to last as long as possible.
