Address Gaps from Missing Teeth

A dental bridge effectively restores both the look and functionality of your mouth by spanning spaces with a prosthetic tooth. This tooth is anchored by dental implants, your existing teeth, or both. Often called a ‘fixed partial denture,’ dental bridges are permanently attached, eliminating the need for nightly removal or special cleaning. Bridging these gaps is crucial, not only for aesthetic reasons but also for maintaining overall oral health. Without a bridge, missing teeth can hinder your ability to speak or chew properly, and existing teeth may shift into the open spaces.

Enduring Advantages of Dental Bridges

The absence of one or more teeth can impact your self-esteem and comfort. Dental bridges not only help restore your smile to its natural state but also provide lasting benefits for your surrounding teeth and overall oral bone health. Here’s a breakdown of the benefits:

Immediate Comfort

The benefits are immediate, impacting your daily life. Regain your natural smile and the ability to eat confidently. The presence of gaps can make speaking or eating uncomfortable or even painful. Dental bridges offer a durable remedy for this discomfort, lasting over a decade with proper maintenance.

Tooth Health

Teeth rely on each other for support and help maintain your facial structure. Missing teeth can lead to an altered bite and create space for other teeth to shift, potentially causing decay, periodontal disease, jaw pain, and TMJ disorders. A dental bridge prevents these shifts, safeguarding against these risks.

Bone Health

Healthy teeth promote a healthy jawbone. As dental health wanes, so does the bone and tissue health that supports your teeth. By stabilizing your dental situation with a bridge, you can decelerate the bone loss associated with missing teeth.

Cost of Dental Bridges in Orillia

The price of a dental bridge can differ significantly depending on individual needs. Without insurance, you might expect to pay approximately $2,000 to $3,000 or more.

    Factors Influencing the Cost of a Dental Bridge:
  • The type and material of the bridge
  • The number of missing teeth
  • The location and complexity of the placement
  • The health of the adjacent teeth
  • The specific supplies and equipment required for your treatment

It’s crucial to remember that no dental office can provide an exact price estimate over the phone. Every patient’s situation is as unique as their smile. To get a clear understanding of your options and an accurate price, it’s essential to consult with a dentist and undergo a thorough oral examination. If you have dental insurance, your dentist can provide a detailed quote for you to submit to your insurance company, helping you understand your out-of-pocket costs before making any decisions.

Frequently Asked Questions

It typically takes a few weeks to adjust to a new dental bridge. During this period, you might notice increased sensitivity in your teeth and gums, but this usually diminishes as your mouth becomes accustomed to the new structure.

No, dental bridges are made from materials that do not respond to whitening treatments like natural teeth. To maintain a consistent color, it’s advisable to whiten your natural teeth to your desired shade before the bridge is fabricated.

Alternatives to dental bridges include dental implants and removable partial dentures. Each option has its own set of advantages and suitability depending on the patient’s oral health, budget, and preferences.

Care for a dental bridge involves regular brushing and flossing, just like your natural teeth. It’s also important to clean under the bridge to prevent plaque buildup. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are essential to ensure the longevity of the bridge.

Yes, a dental bridge can fail due to issues like poor fitting, dental decay under the crowns, or trauma. Signs of failure include movement of the bridge, discomfort when chewing, or a noticeable odor from the area around the bridge. If you experience any of these, consult your dentist promptly.

I’ve been coming to this dentistry since I was a teenager and now I am still a patient and my children come here too, always friendly staff, very easy to get a hold of via phone, very easy to make appointments and to reschedule if needed. The staff has been ever so patient with my son, and doesn’t fail to give a little prize from the treasure box after every visit. Since changing to Bayside dentistry I’ve noticed just as much positive caring staff as I did before In my opinion, this is the best place to go to Orillia!!!

Switched our dentist to this one after a terrible experience elsewhere. Our first visit was wonderful. The receptionists were lovely and the Dentist was absolutely amazing with my 8 year old son. Dr. Mantal was also very understanding, supportive and kind to me as well. Safe to say we made a good choice switching, and can't wait to come back again!
