Our doctor, Dr. Clell M. Morris, encourages you to replace your missing teeth before more oral health complications occur. Fortunately, he offers dental bridges in Forsyth, Georgia, to help you restore the health and function of your smile and mouth. Dental bridges are strong restorations that can help you in a myriad of ways. To explain more about the restoration, our dental team is happy to share the benefit and treatment details of dental bridges.

Benefits
Dental bridges can restore your smile, give you the ability to properly chew and speak, maintain the shape of your face, give you the force you need in your bite, and prevent your remaining teeth from drifting out of position.

Treatment
The treatment first begins with your dentist numbing the anchoring teeth and gums with a local anesthetic. Then, he will trim those teeth to make room for the bridge (dental crowns hold the bridge into place). When the teeth are the perfect size and shape, he will make impressions of the smile and will send them to lab technicians who will custom make your restoration. While you wait for your bridge to be created, your dentist will cover the anchoring teeth with temporary dental crowns. When the bridge is ready, you will come back to our office to have it securely placed over your teeth.

We will be happy to schedule you an appointment so we can ensure the best treatment options for you. We look forward to hearing from you!
