What Can I Expect When I Get a Fixed Dental Bridge?
During your first consultation, we will take X-rays, provide an expert examination, and develop a personalized treatment plan with you. Then, we will then take impressions of your mouth to ensure a natural and comfortable fit for your dental bridge.
A temporary bridge will be placed to guard the treatment site while your permanent bridge is being custom-made. When your permanent bridge arrives at our practice, you will come back in and your bridge will be carefully and securely placed.
What Should I Expect After My Dental Bridge is Placed?
After having a fixed bridge placed, you may feel tender and sore for the adjustment period. You may also experience minor bleeding. This is normal and will dissipate within a few days, though gums may need a little more time to fully heal.
You can return to work, school, and normal daily activities as soon as you feel well enough to do so. Most patients feel well enough to do so the day after the procedure.
What Is The Cost For a Fixed Dental Bridge?
Dental bridges are an affordable option for tooth replacement. The cost varies from patient to patient depending on the material used to create the bridge, the number of teeth needing to be replaced, the type of bridge needed, and whether or not extensive work is required for support for the new bridge.
Your insurance company may cover the costs for the bridge. We will let you know any out of pocket costs before any procedures and go over our payment options.
