Patients seeking teeth replacement consider dental bridge treatment at Longview dental office
Patients suffer from tooth loss for several reasons including congenital absence, trauma, and gum disease. Respected dentist Dr. Clint Bruyere understands tooth loss can be embarrassing and cause patients to shy away from smiling. The dentist who has been treating patients for about 30 years provides many tooth replacement solutions including dental bridge treatment at his Longview dental practice.
Dental bridges contain dental crowns, which are placed on adjacent teeth. To explore your candidacy for dental bridge treatment, we recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Bruyere. At your appointment, he will examine the health of your mouth, teeth, and gums. He may take x-rays to examine the jawbone and soft tissues. If you are a candidate for treatment, Dr. Bruyere will devise a treatment plan with you. For treatment, Dr. Bruyere will make impressions of your mouth. The molds are used to customize your dental bridge.
Your dental bridge can last a decade or more with proper care and maintenance. Dr. Bruyere will provide proper aftercare instructions to ensure you can keep the dental bridge in good condition. It will be critical to maintain your oral health by brushing at least twice a day, flossing before bedtime, and scheduling regular dental check-ups. Dental bridges can provide many physical and emotional benefits. They can:
- Restore missing teeth
- Distribute the bite forces properly by replacing missing teeth
- Restore the ability to speak properly
- Fill the gap left by missing teeth
- Prevent teeth from drifting out of position
- Restore health, beauty, and function to the smile
- Increase self-esteem
- Renew confidence
Dental bridges are typically more affordable than other tooth replacements such as dentures or dental implants. We can explore you insurance coverage and would be happy to discuss financing options as well as other payment methods. We are committed to helping you receive the treatment you need to attain the smile you desire.
