One of the restorative treatment provided to replace your missing teeth is a dental bridge. Dental bridges may be recommended to replace a single tooth or several teeth in a row. We invite you to call Northwestern Dental Group at 847-305-2442 to schedule an appointment with our experienced dentists and learn more about the benefits of dental bridges in Arlington Heights, Illinois.
Dental bridges are fixed (non-removable) restorations. A bridge consists of one or more replacement teeth, which are anchored to dental crowns on either side of the gap in your smile. Bridges may also be anchored to a dental implant.
The benefits of dental bridges include:
- Relieving stress on the bite
- Holding your remaining teeth in their correct positions
- Restoring your ability to chew and speak normally
- Restoring your smile to full function and beauty
- Supporting the shape and volume of your place
- Replacing partial dentures
Our dentists typically require two appointments to complete your dental bridge and place it in your mouth. We will first take impressions of your mouth and prepare your teeth to receive the dental bridge. Once your bridge has been designed and created, our dentists will place it in your mouth, check to ensure it fits properly and bond it into place. Your bridge is designed to last more many years so that you can continue to enjoy a healthy smile.
