The natural bacteria in your mouth are pervasive. When they are bolstered by poor oral hygiene practices, a cavity can form. If this cavity goes untreated for a long time, it can so severely compromise the tooth that the tooth severely fractures or is completely lost.
One of the most effective ways to replace the missing tooth is to have a dental bridge installed at Sarasota Implant.
To do this, Dr. Kenneth M. Schweizer will need to form abutments out of the two closest teeth. This is done by using a drill to remove the tooth enamel, leaving behind two healthy cores of dentin enrobing the healthy pulp and root of each tooth. Your dentist will then form an impression of the area. This will be sent to a state-of-the-art dental lab where your new bridge will be made.
Your dentist will then secure a temporary dental crown over each abutment to protect it while the lab technician is busy producing your final bridge.
A member of our Sarasota Implant staff will call you to schedule a brief second appointment when your bridge comes back from the dental lab. The temporary crowns will be removed and your new bridge will be cemented onto the abutments with a strong dental adhesive.
If you’ve lost a tooth to untreated decay and you’re interested in a dental bridge in Sarasota, Florida, you should call 941-256-2488 to schedule an appointment at Sarasota Implant.
