Restoring the smile with a dental bridge from our Kennesaw practice

Various circumstances may lead to the loss of a tooth. Whether due to direct injury or tooth decay, once a permanent tooth is lost or removed the priority becomes replacement. Leaving an empty space in the mouth is never recommended, as teeth tend to shift to fill the void. A further complication of a lost tooth is that harmful bacteria may thrive with extra areas to hide at the gum line. Using a dental bridge in our Kennesaw practice, we can effectively:
  • Restore a smile to its most attractive state
  • Encourage optimal chewing and speaking
  • Maintain ideal facial contours by ensuring cheeks and lips are well supported
  • Ensure the proper distribution of force in the bite
  • Keep surrounding teeth in their proper position
There are various dental bridge designs that may be recommended, depending on specifics. In our Kennesaw practice, we tend to use the traditional dental bridge or a fixed bridge should the patient opt not to replace a lost tooth with a dental implant.

A traditional dental bridge includes two full dental crowns, which are fitted onto the two teeth that lie on the sides of the gap. Each of these teeth will need to be reduced to accommodate the crown. Between the two dental crowns lies an artificial tooth, called a pontic. Receiving a dental bridge takes just two visits, and provides the patient with years of proper aesthetics and use.

It is during the first visit that anchor teeth are prepared through the removal of part of the enamel of the tooth. Once these two teeth have been prepared, an impression is taken to guide the fabrication process, which takes place in a dental laboratory. The patient leaves our office with a temporary bridge to wear while the permanent appliance is in the production process.

Within approximately ten days, the patient returns to our office where the temporary bridge is replaced with the custom-made permanent dental bridge after this appliance is thoroughly assessed for fit. Should a fixed bridge be used, this appliance will be cemented into place.

Restoration of the smile with a dental bridge from our Kennesaw practice can last for 15 or more years. Fixed dental bridges tend to last approximately ten years, but both types of restorative appliances can last even longer when they and the remaining teeth are properly cared for. This includes brushing twice a day and flossing every day to minimize the risk of tooth decay and gum disease, both of which affect the foundation bridgework relies upon for longevity.

    I've been seeing Dr. Breckley and Dr. Vo since they opened this practice, and I'm still a huge fan. I recently had some dental work done with them (like this morning). I've never doubted the doctors' abilities, and this experience was no exception. They are experts and are very good at their craft. I want to also mention the support staff, especially the women on the front desk. They are thorough, helpful, and so very nice. I've never experienced the follow-up and follow through at another practice as I have with them at 32 Dental. I always know what my bill will be. There are never any surprises, and that is so comforting in this day of American healthcare. :) I'll continue to refer my friends to them and patron their practice based on my experiences with them! Thanks!

Wow." I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone who wants both kids and adults to be taken care of at the same location!

    32 Dental was quick and kind. The office staff was efficient and the dentist was very thorough. He referred me to a specialist due to the type of root canal needed. He was able to find one available for the same day. I will definitely use them in the future.
