We Can Fix Those Gaps In Your Teeth! Bridges Can Restore Your Smile.

Dr. Walden can help you realize the benefits of tooth replacement, including:
Restore the appearance of your smile
- Maintain the spacing of the surrounding teeth
- Eat your favorite foods again
- Increase your self-esteem
- Correct any speech or chewing difficulties caused by tooth loss
- Protect bone health
How Are Teeth Replaced with a Partial Denture or Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is comprised of three or more crown units. The end crown units are affixed to your natural teeth to secure the bridge. The middle unit spans the space of your missing tooth. A dental bridge is a permanent solution for tooth loss that is both natural looking and affordable. However, a bridge does require the alteration of your natural, healthy teeth to anchor it in place.
Placement is accomplished in two visits to Dr. Walden. In the first session, he will remove a layer of the enamel from the anchor teeth to ensure that the crowns can fit over them without affecting your bite. Then, impressions of your teeth will be taken in order to create your bridge. Within three weeks, you will return to have your new bridge permanently affixed.
While partial dentures are affordable, they are not a popular option due to their temporary nature. Partial dentures
consist of either a flexible plastic material or a metal and plastic base, which is colored to match the gums. The partial denture is held in place with metal or plastic clasps and can be removed for cleaning and before sleeping.
