Dental bridges serve as reliable solutions for replacing missing teeth, offering both functional and aesthetic benefits. We are thrilled to provide dental bridges in Wheaton, Illinois, to help restore your smile! 

Understanding Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are prosthetic devices designed to bridge the gap created by missing teeth. These restorations consist of artificial teeth (pontics) anchored to adjacent natural teeth or dental implants. They restore proper chewing function, prevent dental misalignment and enhance overall oral health.


Types of Dental Bridges

There are several types of dental bridges, each catering to specific needs and preferences. Traditional bridges are anchored to adjacent natural teeth, while implant-supported bridges rely on dental implants for stability. Dr. Rebecca Hausten carefully evaluates individual cases to determine the most suitable type of dental bridge for optimal results. 

The Bridge Placement Process

The placement of dental bridges involves a meticulous process, including tooth preparation, impression-taking and the final bridge attachment. Our dentist and team ensure precision in each step, customizing the bridge to blend seamlessly with natural teeth and provide a comfortable fit. 

Preventing Complications and Maintaining Bridges

Proper care and maintenance are essential for the longevity of dental bridges. We are happy to educate patients on oral hygiene practices, provide regular check-ups and suggest lifestyle adjustments to prevent complications and ensure the durability of the restoration.
