Dental Bridges Baltimore, MD

Dental Bridges An Overview

A dental bridge has long been the replacement option when one or more consecutive teeth are missing. Anchored by existing teeth or new dental implants, a dental bridge can restore normal function and help you maintain your oral health for the long term. A trusted dentist in Baltimore MD, Dr. Byron Desbordes can design and place a custom fit dental bridge so that you can get back to enjoying life with a stable and functional smile.

Today’s dental bridges are typically fixed for a more secure restoration. A bridge can be anchored using your existing teeth or dental implants. When natural teeth are used, a dental crown is usually recommended to strengthen the tooth and provide a more stable support for the bridge. Dr. Desbordes will recommend the placement of dental implants if the existing teeth are damaged or considered too weak to effectively support a dental bridge.

Dental Bridges What to Expect

Dr. Desbordes will meet with you to thoroughly evaluate your dental health and discuss your concerns and goals. If dental implants are recommended, he will create a treatment plan for the surgical placement of the implant post and a temporary bridge to restore function.

Once the anchor teeth are ready, impressions will be taken for use in fabricating your new custom dental bridge. In a couple of weeks time a new bridge will be ready to be permanently secured to the anchor teeth. Your new smile will complement your natural appearance and support lasting dental health.
