Fixed Bridgework IN PETOSKEY, MI

Fixed Bridgework

Fixed Bridgework effectively addresses the issue of missing teeth through a dental restoration technique. This procedure involves attaching a prosthetic tooth, or teeth, to the neighboring natural teeth, creating a seamless and permanent solution. Unlike removable dentures, fixed bridges remain securely in place and prevent patients from removing them. This dental treatment is an excellent alternative to dental implants and dentures, providing patients with a long-lasting solution for their missing teeth. Individuals with missing teeth can rely on this treatment option as a durable, stable alternative to dental implants or dentures. Our experienced dental professionals use top-quality materials and advanced techniques to craft custom-made bridges that restore functionality and enhance your smile’s aesthetics.

Fixed bridges anchor artificial teeth to the natural teeth on either side of the gap. The procedure involves careful preparation of the adjacent teeth, followed by the creation and placement of the bridge, resulting in a seamless and functional replacement for missing teeth. This treatment suits individuals looking to regain confident smiles and improve oral function without needing removable dental appliances. A fixed bridge can offer you the stability and comfort required to enjoy your daily activities and maintain proper oral health, whether you have one or multiple missing teeth.

A fixed bridge typically lasts 10-15 years or even longer with proper care and maintenance.

Typically, a fixed bridge procedure does not cause any pain. The dentist administers local anesthesia to ensure the patient’s comfort during the process. In case of any post-operative discomfort, the patient can manage it with over-the-counter pain relievers.

Most individuals with missing teeth and healthy adjacent teeth are candidates for fixed bridges.

Caring for a fixed bridge involves regular brushing, flossing, dental check-ups, and avoiding hard or sticky foods to maintain longevity.

Our dental professionals design fixed bridges to blend with your natural teeth, restoring functionality and enhancing your smile’s aesthetics. They are virtually unnoticeable, ensuring a discreet appearance.

Dental insurance may partially cover the cost of a fixed bridge, but the extent of coverage depends on the specific insurance plan.
