Highland Dental — Top Choice for Dental Bridges

Do you have a gap in your smile where there used to be a tooth? Are you missing two or more teeth and don’t know what to do? Consider a dental bridge to restore your smile!

What is a Dental Bridge?

A bridge is a natural-looking dental appliance that can replace a missing tooth or a section of missing teeth. Because it is custom made to look natural in your mouth, a bridge is barely noticeable and can restore the natural contour of teeth as well as the proper bite relationship between upper and lower teeth.

Different Types of Bridges

At Highland Dental, we have the expertise to ensure that you get the right dental bridge to address your individual needs:

  • A fixed bridge is a permanent appliance that is anchored in your mouth using the surrounding teeth or supported by a dental implant. Different types of fixed bridges include conventional fixed bridges, cantilever bridges and resin-bonded bridges.
  • A removable bridge is not permanent and can be removed daily for cleaning as needed. This alternative to a fixed bridge requires no surgery and is often a more economical choice for replacing missing teeth.

Why Get a Dental Bridge

When you have one or more missing teeth, no matter where they are in your mouth, your oral health can suffer over time if you do not choose a replacement solution. The surrounding teeth will shift or rotate to fill in the gap left behind, not only changing your bite and possibly affecting the way you eat and talk, but also increasing your chances of developing gum disease and TMD. To keep your smile healthy and looking its best, we always recommend replacing missing teeth, even back molars that are not visible when you smile.

A dental bridge is one tooth replacement option available at Highland Dental. After a thorough examination of your teeth and mouth, Dr. Brooks will assess the current state of your oral health and recommend the best type of dental bridge for your needs. He will devise a customized treatment plan that considers not only your dental health needs, but also your personal goals and your budget.

To learn more about the procedure and whether a dental bridge could be the right tooth replacement option for you, contact our office to schedule your consultation with St. Paul’s most experienced dentist.

I felt welcomed!! The dental hygienist was fabulous! Even before I sat down Angie worked towards ensuring I felt comfortable. The dentist was also great. The administrative assistant called my insurance to find out if I was eligible for certain treatments. I’m definitely returning to this dentist!!! Everyone in the office deserves a GOLD STAR.

I wanted a second opinion and felt very good about the visit. The Dentist was informative and candid with me and gave me a referral for the work I needed. It gave me a lot of peace of mind.
