Dental Bridges
An Affordable Solution to Missing Teeth

Missing teeth can leave you struggling to chew, eat, or speak. If you are looking to close a gap in your smile, dental bridges offer affordable and long-term treatment for missing teeth. These prosthetics are comprised of one or more artificial teeth that are held in place by dental crowns or implants.

Dr. Todd Martin offers dental bridges in our Murfreesboro, TN, dental clinic. Bluegrass Dental was founded in 1977 and has served the Murfreesboro community for over 40 years.

Benefits of Dental Bridges

Am I a Candidate?

Patients who are missing one or a few neighboring teeth are good candidates for a dental bridge. If you are missing several teeth that are not next to one another, however, a partial denture may serve your oral health needs better. Patients who are missing an entire arch will need full dentures or implant-supported dentures.

In order to qualify for traditional dental bridges, patients will need to have a healthy tooth on either side of the gap.

Our Murfreesboro clinic also offers implant-supported crowns. Patients wishing to undergo this treatment will need to have adequate jawbone density to support the titanium posts that are placed into the jaw. If there is not enough bone tissue to support a post, you may need a bone graft in order to qualify for treatment.

A Look at the Procedure

Your treatment timeline will vary depending on whether you opt for a traditional or implant-supported bridge.

Dr. Martin is an experienced oral surgeon and has had special training in dental implant surgery procedures.

Traditional Dental Bridges Timeline

Placing a traditional dental bridge requires two appointments. The first visit is dedicated to preparing your tooth to receive the bridge. Dr. Martin will use a local anesthetic to numb the tooth before removing a small amount of enamel to create adequate space for the crowns. Then, an impression of your mouth will be made. This impression will be used to fabricate your dental bridge, a process that takes about three weeks. At this point, you can return for your second appointment to make sure that the bridge is a good fit.

Implant-supported Bridges Timeline

Implant-supported bridges have a timeline of several months or longer. To plan your implant surgery, we use a cone beam scanner. This helps us to more accurately visualize your oral cavity and determine the best position for the implants. During the initial surgery, our doctor will place one or more implants into your jawbone. Patients generally require four to five months to recover from this procedure. Then, a small metal attachment called an abutment will be placed on the implant. Your dental bridge will then be attached to the abutment.
