If you have missing teeth, a Frisco dentist can fill in those gaps with a dental bridge. The bridge is essentially a false tooth, also known as a pontic. The teeth on either side of your gap hold the pontic permanently in place. A pontic may consist of gold, porcelain, or another durable material. The outer surface of the pontic is supposed to blend in with the natural teeth on either side of the gap.

There are four main types of dental bridges in Frisco, TX that we offer, including:
Are You a Candidate for a Dental Bridge?
With so many possible solutions for filling in a gap, you may be wondering if you are a candidate for a dental bridge. A dental bridge provides several benefits that include:
- Restoring your full smile with no gaps in your teeth
- Improving your ability to chew using a complete set of teeth
- Improving your ability to talk with clear pronunciation
- Helping you maintain the shape and contour of your face
- Allowing you to chew in a more balanced manner
- Preventing other teeth from getting damaged or coming loose
The best way to determine if a dental bridge is right for you is to visit your dentist at Frisco Dental Associates. We can diagnose your medical condition and then make recommendations based on accurate test results. Whether you choose tooth bridges or another treatment, you do not have to live with missing teeth any longer.
Dental Bridge Process
The process of getting a dental bridge involves two appointments. During the first appointment, the adjacent anchor teeth are prepared and re-contoured. Next, an impression is made for the prepared teeth from which a custom bridge is made to replace the missing space. A temporary bridge is placed on the prepared teeth to preserve the gum and space around the missing area.
At the following visit the temporary bridge is removed and the final bridge is placed using a permanent cement. It is adjusted to match your natural bite and your adjacent natural teeth.
Taking Care of Your Dental Bridge
Once we place your dental bridge you will need to take proper care of it as you would your other teeth. We recommend that you brush your teeth twice a day and floss in between your teeth. We also recommend that you schedule regular checkups with your dentist. If you ever sense something wrong with your dental bridge, please schedule an exam immediately. This allows us to take care of the issue before it turns into a costly medical problem.

Best dental team in Texas!!! I have been to them now for 2 dental emergencies and in both cases they have been phenomenal. on my last visit, I needed 2 teeth pulled. after the 1st tooth, my anxiety was getting the best of me (I have very bad dental anxiety) and before I even said anything, Dr. E offered to reschedule my other tooth for another day. not only do they do amazing work, but they actively listen to their patients and work with them. i will recommend them to everyone i know, and I'm certainly not going anywhere else!
