Dental Bridges Palmdale & Lancaster, CA

Dental Bridges An Overview

Traditionally, a dental bridge is used to “bridge the gap” when one or several teeth have been lost. Dental bridges can be removable or fixed; the type of bridge you receive will depend on the condition of your teeth, overall dental health, and preference. In most cases, dentists will recommend an implant-supported dental bridge because it offers several advantages over other tooth replacement options.

Benefits of An Implant Supported Bridge:

  • Preserves more of the natural teeth: Traditional dental bridges rely on adjacent teeth, which can compromise the health of the anchored teeth. Dental bridges fixed into place using dental implants rely on the dental implants for support instead of the neighboring teeth.
  • A secure solution for tooth loss: An implant-supported dental bridge gives patients the comfort of knowing their teeth are staying in place. Implants add much-needed support, which allows patients to smile confidently and securely.
  • Promotes bone regeneration: Dental implants help generate bone growth after tooth and bone density loss. Implants are the only tooth replacement that can help promote bone growth.

Smile Dental Group offers a range of tooth replacement options for patients missing one or several teeth. We offer full-service dental implants in our Antelope Valley dentist offices. If you would like to determine if a traditional dental bridge or implant secured dental bridge is right for you, contact one of our three office locations to schedule a consultation.

Dental Bridges What to Expect

Receiving a dental bridge will depend on whether it will to the adjacent teeth with crowns or dental implants. We will evaluate your teeth, jaw, gums, and surrounding structure to determine which solution is right for you. On average, this type of procedure will require 2-3 visits to our dental office.

If the bridge is anchored using adjacent teeth, crowns may need to be placed first to create a more secure foundation. If dental implants are used to anchor a dental bridge, we will need to place the post into the jawbone surgically. The posts are given a few months to heal. Once the posts heal, the dental bridge is designed and placed.

We work with you to ensure you are comfortable and relaxed during your appointment.  We offer a complete range of dental sedation options to keep you comfortable. During your appointment, we will explore all your options and work with you to choose the best options for your dental health.
