Bridges are a great alternative to implants in order to replace missing teeth. Bridges are created by preparing two adjacent teeth and connecting them with a bridge unit.
In order to create a bridge, two adjacent teeth are prepared to create a base for the bridge unit to attach to. During your first visit to Oleynik Dental, the two teeth will be prepared and an impression will be taken of the area. A temporary bridge will be placed in the area at the end of the first visit. After this, the lab creates the permanent bridge using the impression. During the second appointment, the permanent bridge is cemented into place. It is important to replace missing teeth because other teeth can shift out of place if spaces are left. In addition, shifting teeth can affect the bite.
