Dental Bridges

Dental Bridges

Missing teeth not only affect your smile’s appearance but can also cause functionality issues such as speaking, chewing and maintaining alignment of your remaining teeth. If you suffer from missing teeth, the dentists at Back Bay Family Dentistry in D’Iberville can help. We offer dental bridges for patients that have missing teeth or need teeth removed.

What is a Dental Bridge?

Dental bridges are an oral device used to replace missing teeth. They can either be fixed (permanently attached) or removable, depending on your preference.

  • If you prefer a fixed dental bridge, the bridge will be bonded into place and will only be removable through a dental procedure.
  • Removable bridges can be removed and cleaned whenever you like but offer less stability than a fixed bridge.

How Do I Get a Dental Bridge?

The process of getting a dental bridge usually takes two or three appointments to complete, due to needing to be very precise to ensure functionality and longevity. First you will need to contact Back Bay Family Dentistry in D’Iberville, MS and schedule an appointment with Dr. Parker or Dr. Miner.

  • You will have an examination and discuss the type of dental bridge that will work best for you.
  • Your dentist will prepare the adjacent teeth, removing necessary enamel and dentin.
  • Impressions of the teeth will be taken to create your custom bridge.
  • Crowns will be applied to adjacent teeth to provide stability for the bridge.
  • The false tooth, or teeth will be bonded to the crowns.
