Getting a dental bridge usually requires two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a portion of enamel to allow for a crown.
Next, a highly accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental laboratory where the dental bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a temporary dental bridge will be made and worn for several weeks until your next appointment.
At the second visit to your Groton family dentistry, Access Dental, your permanent dental bridge will be carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit. Occasionally your Groton dentist, Dr. Ali may only temporarily cement the dental bridge, allowing your teeth and tissue time to get used to the new bridge. The new dental bridge will be permanently cemented at a later time.
You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new permanent dental bridge.
