Losing teeth is never an easy process. Many of our patients at Pleasure Dental in Royse City who have experienced permanent tooth loss often have mixed feelings about the situation. Some of the most common reactions are lowered self-esteem, poor self-confidence, and even a withdrawal from regular social activities like eating in public and even speaking to other people.
We don’t want our patients to feel ostracized or to experience the negative emotions that come with permanent tooth loss. After all, there are numerous factors that can contribute to the situation, so it often is not the patient’s personal fault. When someone visits our office in Royse City, Pleasure Dental focuses on creating long-lasting and durable solutions, including the creation of dental bridges.
A dental bridge consists of a false tooth called a pontic, which is held in the mouth with either wires, abutments placed on nearby teeth, or even implants. Each bridge is customized to suit your personal needs and can be fitted for maximum comfort.
Here at Pleasure Dental, we offer several different types of bridges, including traditional models and options that can be installed directly into the mouth using crowns or an implant.
To create the best dental bridge possible, our dentist will take a mold of your mouth during your initial appointment and will prepare your mouth for the future installation. The mold is sent to a professional dental lab, where the bridge is created. We receive the bridge after two weeks, at which point you can return and have the bridge installed.
The entire treatment can take as little as two weeks. If you need procedures before the bridge can be installed, such as a gum graft, then we will work on completing treatment as quickly yet healthily as possible so you can receive your bridge.
