Dr. Michelle A. Sanor offers a dental bridge in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, to help her patients replace their missing teeth and improve the appearance of their smile.
A dental bridge is made of two or more dental crowns and false teeth. This is a product that does not require surgery and it is anchored by the remaining natural teeth that lie on both sides of the gap in the mouth. This is a beneficial product that can restore a smile and provide the ability to properly chew and speak. It can also distribute the needed forces in a bite as well as prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of place.
If you are interested in a dental bridge, Dr. Michelle A. Sanor asks that you expect about two trips to Michelle Sanor. First, your dentist will prepare the anchoring teeth for the bridge. The surfaces of the teeth will be filed down to allow room for the dental crowns that make up the bridge. Then, she will make impressions of your teeth and will send them to the dental lab where your bridge will be created. Between your first and second visits, you will be given a temporary bridge that will give you the functionality you need while you wait. During your second visit, your dentist will make sure the bridge fits perfectly in your mouth. In order to make that happen, she will make any needed adjustments to the product. When it is the proper shape and size, your dentist will permanently cement the bridge into your mouth.
