How Long Do Fixed Dental Bridges Last?
Fixed dental bridges can last from approximately 5 to 15 years, and they will last longer if you take care of them properly. Don’t abuse your teeth with bad habits such as crunching on ice cubes, and your dental bridge should last a long time.
What Is the Process to Get a Fixed Dental Bridge?
The first step in getting a fixed bridge is to visit us at Downey Dental Arts in Southern California. We will take precision X-rays and examine your teeth and gums to see if a dental bridge might be the best option for you in treatment. Digital imaging and/or impressions will be taken of your teeth to help create your fixed dental bridge. We will supply a temporary dental bridge until your fixed bridge is ready.
What Should I Expect After I Get a Fixed Dental Bridge in Downey?
Once the fixed dental bridge is situated, you will need approximately a week or two to fully recover, although you will be able to use your new teeth right away! Overall, recovery should be fairly easy. You might feel a little bit of light pain and tenderness, but over-the-counter pain medications can help ease this feeling.
