One thought on “What does getting a fixed bridge involve?

  1. Arti says:

    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 bridge will be fabricated. Occasionally your dentist may only temporarily cement the bridge, allowing your teeth and tissue time to get used to the new bridge. The new bridge will be permanently cemented at a later time. Getting a bridge usually requires two or more visits. At the second visit, your permanent bridge will be carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit. Proper brushing, flossing and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new permanent bridge. You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for several weeks until your next appointment.
