If you have lost your confidence to smile because you have missing teeth, did you know that a dental bridge can rescue your smile? If smiling with gaps in your mouth makes you self-conscious, our team can help. Dr. Bennett Packard and Dr. David Packard offer dental bridges for our patients who are seeking to replace their missing teeth so they can smile again with confidence.
At Creekside Dental, many of our patients in Yakima, Washington, have found bridges to be an excellent choice when bridging a gap in their smiles. A bridge distributes the forces in your bite evenly so the remaining teeth don’t have to compensate for the missing teeth. With the aid of a dental bridge, you will be able to speak and chew normally again, prevent remaining teeth from shifting position, and maintain your facial features.
How does having a bridge work?
1- Bridges help those who have lost their pearly whites and still have plenty of jawbone material to support an implant.
2- Dental bridges are typically made of porcelain fused to metal.
3- With a dental bridge your teeth emerge from the gums so you won’t have anything going over your gums or touching the palate.
4- Maintaining your bridge is easy; take good care of your remaining teeth and gums through diligent daily cleaning along with bi-annual professional cleanings and exams. With proper care, your bridge may last longer than ten years.
