Restorative dentistry can help you regain your full smile after extensive tooth loss. Our team at Northwest Center for Prosthodontics is pleased to offer a variety of restorative treatments, including custom dental bridges that span large tooth gaps created by missing teeth. You can once again have the full smile you want by receiving a dental bridge that improves dental appearance and oral health.

Depending on the quality of your oral health, we can support the bridge using your natural teeth, dental implants or a little bit of both so that your bridge can look and feel like real teeth. Our dentists will gladly meet with you to discuss the different types of dental bridges, including traditional, cantilever and Maryland options, so that you can choose the style most optimal for your smile.

By creating an impression of your smile as part of the dental bridge process, we can provide you with a beautiful appliance that meets your dental needs and preferences. The type of bridge you receive will determine how it’s attached to your smile. For example, traditional and cantilever bridges can be cemented to neighboring teeth, while a Maryland bridge requires wings to remain securely in place.

Properly caring for your dental bridge and keeping your mouth healthy can enable the appliance to last as long as 10 years. We encourage you to care for your appliance by keeping dental infection and cavities at bay with daily tooth brushing and flossing.

If you would like to once again have the ability to speak and chew like normal after tooth loss, schedule a visit with Dr. Joshua A. Manchester by calling 360-459-4400 today to learn more about dental bridges in Olympia, Washington.
