Relieving the Stress On Your Smile & Mouth

Dental Bridge in Flower Mound, TX

What is a Dental Bridge?

Sometimes referred to as a partial, fixed denture, a dental bridge is an appliance used to replace missing teeth with manufactured teeth. The dental bridge looks natural and works to bridge the gap where one or more teeth are missing. If Dr. Titensor recommends a dental bridge in Flower Mound to replace your missing teeth, you can choose from porcelain, alloys, gold, or a combination of these materials for the bridgework. Once the bridge is ready, Dr. Titensor permanently bonds the bridge onto your surrounding teeth to support it.

What is the Function of a Dental Bridge?

When you are missing one or more teeth, you may notice a difference in chewing, speaking, and smiling – smiling, because you are self-conscious about your missing teeth and do not smile as often as you would like. Bridges restore your smile, maintain the shape of your face, and alleviate the stress in your bite by replacing your missing teeth.

How are Dental Bridges Constructed?

Your dental bridge construction and placement is a two-visit procedure. During your first visit, Dr. Titensor assesses your teeth, takes x-rays, and determines the options available to you. You might consider partials and dental implants as a means for tooth replacement but if Dr. Titensor recommends a dental bridge, he will then design the device and bond it to your teeth in a second visit.

Most dental bridges consist of a natural looking false tooth that is held together by two crowns. The false tooth bridges the gap and is held in place by the two crowns on either side.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Bridges?

If you are missing one or more teeth, you are a candidate for a dental bridge; however, the difference between proper and improper oral hygiene normally determines the success of your dental bridge. If you have a missing tooth, you will want to explore the different tooth replacement options and understand the difference between dental implants versus dental bridges.

Dr. Brett and Steven Titensor and their team at Titensor Dental are ready to answer any questions you have concerning dental bridges and if they are right for you.

How To Care For Dental Bridges

Titensor Dental recommends the following in order to reduce or eliminate any oral health problems you may experience while wearing your dental bridge.

We highly recommend that you:

  • Carefully brush your teeth with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste to remove lodged food that can cause the teeth and gums to become infected, leading to more dental issues and resulting in the loss of your dental bridge.
  • Floss every day. Our oral health specialists at Titensor Dental may recommend using floss threaded for hard-to-reach places between the dental bridge and its adjacent teeth.
  • Every six months, have your teeth cleaned by our oral health team at Titensor Dental.
  • Limit your starch and sugar intake. The debris from these kinds of foods may become damaging acids and lead to plaque formation.
  • Avoid sticky and hard snacks, such as popcorn, hard or chewy candy, caramel, and nuts.

Most dental bridges in Flower Mound function for 8 to 10 years with proper dental care and dental checkups. Dr. Titensor and his staff at Titensor Dental are ready to answer any questions you have concerning dental bridges and if they are right for you.
