Fixed Dental Bridge Procedure Calgary

Dental Bridge in CalgaryIf you lose a tooth or have one that is severely damaged and not stable enough to hold a crown on its own you may be a candidate for a dental bridge. Filling the gap from a missing tooth is important for your health, comfort, and confidence.

One common solution is a traditional fixed bridge. For this procedure, the adjacent teeth are crowned and used to support a false tooth called a pontic. The pontic brings stability back to your smile and discourages the adjacent teeth from moving into the gap. By keeping your bite stable, the bridge will help you eat and speak more comfortably and confidently.

For those who are interested in a more permanent tooth replacement, Sierra Dental is also proud to offer you dental implants.


How to choose between dental implants and dental bridges?

Dental bridge treatment is simpler

As opposed to implant work, which can require a number of treatments, dental bridges can be applied to the patient’s teeth in two to three visits. This helps simplify the treatment process, and can sometimes reduce the overall cost and time of the procedure.

Dental implants might be a more expensive form of treatment than bridges, but implants can be used to replace several missing teeth. Those with significant bone damage, however, might consider bridge work for their treatment.

By running through these options with your dental health professional, you can come to a mutual decision on which is the best choice for your future oral health requirements!
