Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how bridges/partials can help you regain confidence in your smile.
What are Bridges/Partials?
In cases where multiple teeth are missing from the mouth, the best solution is often a dental bridge or partial denture. This is a dental prosthetic that consists of dental crowns attached to biocompatible material such as porcelain, metal, or ceramic. At the Dental Implant Center, we offer either fixed bridges or removable bridges depending on your individual condition and preferences, which can be discussed with our medical team during your consultation.
How Do Bridges/Partials Work?
While traditional bridges/partials are designed to attach to surrounding teeth, at the Dental Implant Center we specialize in using permanent tooth replacements to fix dental prosthetics such as bridges and partial dentures. This method has multiple benefits, such as:
- Elimination of the metal clasps on traditional bridges that can potentially damage gums and teeth
- This treatment option is often more cost-effective than replacing each tooth with an implant
- Bridges fixed with implants are strong enough to withstand the force of biting and chewing
- Typically, only two dental implants are required to successfully fit a bridge or partial.
- Removable bridges and partials can be removed for easy cleaning and maintenance
What is the Treatment Process Like?
Depending on your individual condition and preferences, it may take several weeks to a few months to properly place your dental implants. The biocompatible screws are positioned into the jawbone and left to heal, creating a strong foundation for the bridge. The remaining gaps in the teeth are filled by the bridge, which contains dental crowns that are customized to match the exact color and shape of your natural teeth.
Why Choose Bridges/Partials at the Dental Implant Center?
Doctor McFadden is board-certified in prosthodontics, ensuring results and experience that you can trust. Once your bridge or partial is complete, you can resume talking, chewing, and biting with full functionality without having to worry about your dental prosthetic falling out or becoming loose.
