If you have lost one or several teeth, Dr. Carrie Sessom can provide you with a custom-made dental bridge to restore your smile and healthy bite. We invite you to contact Riverwalk Dental Spa + Sleep Apnea Solutions at 918-770-0027 to learn more about dental bridges in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and schedule your consultation with our experienced dentist.
Missing or damaged teeth not only create discomfort, but also can lead to additional damage over time. The need to chew or speak differently, or to otherwise compensate for the missing or injured tooth, reassigns dental pressure to sensitive areas. To avoid painful complications related to a missing or damaged tooth, your dentist may recommend a bridge. A dental bridge typically is a set of three prosthetic teeth that anchor over the top of two healthy teeth on either side of the missing tooth. The result is restored functionality and comfort. Because bridges can now be milled out of porcelain, they are more natural looking than their earlier counterparts made of precious metals. Unlike dental implants, bridges do not require oral surgery, but will typically need replacing every 10 to 15 years.
When you visit our office to speak with our dentist about your options for replacing missing teeth, we will work with you to help you determine whether or not a dental bridge is the most beneficial treatment for you.
