Fixed Bridges in Falls Church, VA
With factors ranging from genetic predisposition, trauma, advanced decay, or periodontal disease, many patients are left dealing with the challenges posed by tooth loss. Fortunately, there are several options available to replace missing teeth. When patients come into our practice to have these issues addressed, Dr. Robert A. Morabito takes the time to understand their concerns and make a recommendation for the most appropriate course of restorative care. For some cases, this means receiving a fixed bridge, a tried-and-true method of dental restoration.
We provide dental bridges as part of our dedication to helping Falls Church, Arlington, and our neighbors throughout the area enjoy the benefits a full smile has to offer. Reach out to us today and discover if this treatment is right for you.
Why Receive a Dental Bridge?
There is a good reason traditional restorations such as dental bridges are still viable options: they are proven to work. Fixed bridges, in particular, have been shown to last anywhere from 10 to 15 years when provided by an experienced restorative dentist and proper hygiene is maintained.
The following are among the main reasons patients receive a fixed bridge:
- Filling the space left by missing teeth
- Maintaining facial shape
- Preventing the remaining teeth from drifting out of position
- Restoring chewing and speaking ability
- Rejuvenating their smile
- Upgrading from a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance
Those who receive bridges from Dr. Morabito also notice cosmetic benefits as these tooth-colored restorations return uniformity and beauty to the smile.
A Streamlined Procedure
Bridges allow patients to have a permanent replacement for their missing teeth in as few as two visits. To do so, we take digital impressions and either use our in-office CAD/CAM technology or collaborate with a trusted dental laboratory to develop your custom-fit restoration. To ensure the bridge blends in seamlessly, we match the shade of the anchoring crowns and replacement teeth to meet your aesthetic desires while being consistent with the rest of your smile.
Placing the supporting crowns requires minor alteration of neighboring teeth. Dr. Morabito takes a conservative approach to this process, preserving as much healthy dental structure as possible. After checking the bridge for proper fit and ensuring there’s no negative interaction between the restoration and surrounding soft tissue, he cements it in place. From here, the permanent bridge is ready to restore full functionality.
