Harrisburg, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/07/2014 -- When circumstances arise where decay in the mouth worsens, and individuals have a hard time chewing due to discomfort and sensitivity, a tooth may be dying. If the tooth becomes dislodged, there are many procedures to undergo that restores the natural look of the teeth and helps to maintain that beautiful smile. This includes fixed bridges, and American Dental Care in Harrisburg is proud to announce they are now providing bridges to patients this summer.
Receiving a fixed bridge from a dentist in Harrisburg will effectively fill the space where a tooth has gone missing. The term fixed means non-removable, so a bridge is distinct from a denture, and is a durable dental appliance that lasts many years with proper care. With several types of bridges available, the most popular is the traditional bridge, which is made of porcelain and fused to metal. Porcelain is shaded and produced to resemble the color of surrounding teeth, providing a seamless transition into a patient’s mouth.
After several visits and the proper insertion, teeth will avoid shifting out of position, and facial shape will be maintained. A portion of the enamel on the affected space will be removed to allow for a crown. Patients will have x-rays taken of their mouth from a distinguished Harrisburg dentist, who will then send the impressions to be fabricated for customization. An additional appointment will require the bridge to be permanently cemented into the mouth. Proper care aids in the longevity of the appliance. To make an appointment, or to inquire further, please contact the company today.
