Hammond dental crowns and bridges

Missing teeth and the distressing gap affects an individual’s appearance and affects how they smile. Fortunately, Hammond dental crowns and bridges will restore that beautiful smile.

Dental bridges, as the name suggests, bridges the gap left by a missing tooth and teeth. It has two crowns on each tooth that placed on whichever side of the gap of the anchoring or abutment teeth and the false (pontics) teeth. The pontics are made of porcelain, alloy, gold or a blend of all materials. The natural teeth or dental implants support the dental bridges.

Dental bridge benefits include:

  • Prevent remaining teeth from falling out of position
  • Maintains the face of the shape
  • Restores ability to speak and chew properly
  • Helps distribute forces that help you bite appropriately through the existing teeth

  • Getting Hammond Dental Crowns and Bridges

During the first visit, the abutment is prepared for the crown which involves re-contouring the teeth to create room for the crown. Next is creating a tooth impression which serves as the crown, bridge, and false tooth model. The dentist will place a bridge that is temporary to protect the exposed teeth and gum.

The dentist will remove the semi-permanent bridge and put in a new and permanent bridge. You will need a few dental visits to assess the metal framework fit and bite. The bridge will permanently be cemented in place in a few weeks.

The dental bridges can last for 5-15 years or longer and will not affect how you speak or eat.…

Not all of us have the perfect set of teeth and sometimes we may lose some teeth due to bad oral care or some accident we have. In such situations visiting and learning how you can get back, a beautiful smile may be beneficial.

Dentists can help

If you want your teeth to last and always be in good condition, you must meticulously take care of them. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day and regular visits to a dentist can help you maintain a good set of teeth for as long as you live. However, there are times that you may lose a tooth. In such instances, you may want to consider implants.

What are implants?

A dental implant, unlike dentures, is a permanent solution for those who have lost a tooth or have uneven or crooked teeth. You will have to consult a dentist who specializes in implants if you want to have this procedure carried out on your teeth. Not every dentist will perform implants, and you will have to see one that does.

A dentist has to go through additional training to carry out this procedure as it requires them to have an artistic mind as well as medical knowledge. Implants will need more time than regular dentures as the procedure involves placing a titanium screw into the jaw bone. Once this is done, the dentist will allow time for the bone to accept the implant. Once the area around the pin has healed the dentist will proceed to place artificial teeth on them.
