Life without a full smile can be frustrating, as your missing tooth (or missing teeth) can create several problems that affect you on a daily basis. You can feel self-conscious about the way you look, you can have a difficult time biting and chewing certain foods, and you can even have a more difficult time avoiding future dental problems. At our Baxter, MN dental practice, we can help you regain confidence in the way you look, in your ability to bite and chew, and in your ability to preserve a healthy smile. A fixed dental bridge permanently closes a gap in your smile. When in position, it can provide support for your bite function and make your smile look complete again!
A Dental Bridge Is A Custom, Fixed Restoration
Dental bridges are permanent prosthetic restorations. Once in position, you can count on yours to remain in place, and even support you when you bite and chew food. That permanent support is important, because it gives you back stronger bite function, and because it can be a more comfortable arrangement for restoring your full smile. We provide custom bridges, which means we take care to put an appliance in place that effectively imitates your healthy teeth and fits comfortably.
Receiving Your Personal Dental Bridge
Dental bridges can be permanently put in place without the need for oral surgery. An appliance is set in position thanks to a pair of dental crowns on either side of the restoration. The crowns hold your appliance securely enough to keep it in place even as it absorbs pressure when you bite down. Being able to return to a normal bite and show off a full, attractive smile can lead to a big boost in your overall confidence and make you more comfortable enjoying a wider and healthier range of foods.
Additional Services We Provide To Restore An Incomplete Or Unhealthy Smile
In addition to providing dental bridges for patients with missing teeth, we can provide dentures for those who need to deal with more significant issues of tooth loss. For teeth that are unhealthy but still treatable, we can use both dental fillings and dental crowns to protect them. Tooth loss can lead to more oral health problems over time when not treated. Restoring your smile and returning to regular dental exams can help you avoid long-term difficulties and maintain a more youthful and healthy appearance!
