One tooth replacement option we offer at Nguyen Dental Practice is the fixed dental bridge. Bridges are nonremovable dental appliances that are anchored on the two teeth adjacent to the gap. When in place, your custom bridge can:
- Replace an unwanted removable partial denture
- Enhance the facial tissues
- Restore your ability to chew, speak and digest normally
- Prevent other teeth from shifting in the mouth
- Improve the beauty and function of your smile
- Relieve excess stress on your bite
Your custom, aesthetically pleasing bridge can be created and placed in just a few visits at our office. During your first appointment, our dentist will prepare your teeth and take impressions. Once your bridge has been created, we will place it in your mouth, check to ensure that it fits and bond it into place to complete your treatment and give you back a healthy smile. We may recommend using dental implants to add additional security and stability to your bridge rather than anchoring it to the adjacent teeth.
If you would like to learn more about dental bridges in Stockton, California, or schedule a consultation with Dr. Howard Nguyen to find out if a bridge is right for you, please call our office today at 209-478-6466.
