How Does El Segundo Modern Dentistry Place a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is placed during several visits over the course of a few months. We first see you for a consultation, which will include x-rays and the development of an individualized treatment plan. We will then take impressions of your mouth to guarantee a stable and natural fit. Dr. Barkhordar will then expertly prepare your natural teeth for the crowns or wings selected. We will provide a temporary bridge to protect the placement site while your permanent bridge is being custom-made. When the permanent bridge arrives at our office, we will have you come in and we will safely and securely place the bridge.
What Can I Expect After Receiving My New Dental Bridge from El Segundo Modern Dentistry?
Patients may need time to adjust to their new dental bridges, and they may experience soreness and tenderness at first. Sometimes there is also minor bleeding that typically resolves within several days. However, the gums may take longer to completely heal. Patients are able to resume normal activities once they feel able, and for many, this is as little as a day after receiving their new dental bridge.
