Dental Bridges

Dental Bridges

All of your teeth work together to hep you perform daily functions like eating and speaking. Even though this sounds quite obvious, many people come to appreciate the functions of their teeth much more after loosing a tooth. Did you know that missing teeth can also affect your dental health and appearance? For all these reasons, it is necessary to have missing teeth replaced.

Teeth are commonly lost due to injury, natural causes or medical conditions. When you have lost a tooth, it is of vital importance to visit a trusted dentist in your neighbourhood to discuss your options for replacement. One of the best solutions to this issue is to get a dental bridge.

The importance of Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are used in dentistry for replacing missing teeth and providing a literal bridge that connects the teeth. The teeth next to the missing tooth are known as abutment teeth and the false or replacement tooth is referred to as the pontic.

Dental bridges can help to restore your smile and provide support for your face shape. Moreover, bridges can assist you with chewing your food properly by ensuring that the jaws come together properly when you bite down. This is helpful for preventing the other teeth in your mouth from drifting apart and moving out of place.

Fixed bridges are ideal for restoring your dental health along with your appearance. They offer various benefits. For instance, dental bridges provide remarkable cosmetic results by eliminating spaces and creating a beautiful uniform smile. They are also helpful for dealing with any issues you may have with eating and speech.

Removable bridges are also available. These bridges can be taken out, however, their fixed counterparts offer more stability.

Dental bridges are designed to match the size, shape and colour of the existing teeth in your mouth and they can help you achieve a long-lasting and naturally beautiful smile. The result is a functional restoration and cosmetic excellence.

With the correct treatment, missing teeth don’t have to impact your appearance and dental health.

We Believe in Your Smile!

WE ARE OPEN!

Hello!

We are so excited to announce that the Royal College of Dental Surgeons has just given us the green light to begin seeing all non-essential and deferred treatment! Under the guidance of the RCDSO, all dentists in Ontario will now be able to re-open their practices for routine care and treatment. ​ Up until now, due to COVID19 pandemic restrictions, dentists have only been permitted to provide ​ emergency dental treatment. ​ This means that we have been unable to provide any other type of dental procedures since mid-March.

We can't wait to get back to work and begin seeing our patients again! We are spending this week implementing the changes mandated by the ministry of health and the dental association and will resume a normal schedule starting next week. You can rest assured that the safety of our community, our patients, and our team members are of utmost importance and we will have implemented additional safety measures and precautions. This is in addition to our already strict infection control protocols that were already in place.

Please be patient with us and give us some time to contact you; if you have had an appointment rescheduled, you are at the top of our list to call. We will be doing our best to ensure that everyone is re-booked as soon as possible. However, if you would like to get in sooner, or are having a concern, please feel free to give us a call.

What can I expect at my next dental appointment?

  • We will be ​pre-screening ​all patients prior to their appointments, and one more time upon arrival.
  • We are requesting that only the person who is booked for an appointment enter the office where ever possible (parents and caregivers will be permitted if necessary).
  • Upon arrival for your appointment, you will be asked to use hand sanitizer at the front entrance, and also to wear a mask until you are seated in the treatment room. (A mask will be provided if you do not have your own)
  • We will be staggering appointment times to limit the number of people in our offices to promote and encourage physical distancing.
  • There are hand hygiene stations located throughout the offices.
  • We have installed plexiglass barriers in the waiting room to protect our patients and team members.
