About Dental Bridges
When one or more of your teeth are missing, it's more than just a cosmetic problem — gaps in your teeth can cause your remaining teeth to shift. This may result in extra tension in your bite, pain when you chew, or even speech impairment. A dental bridge improves the health and appearance of your smile by covering spaces with a false tooth supported by either your natural teeth, dental implants, or both. At Michael F. Alspaugh, DDS in Edmond, OK, our staff offers custom-made bridges with top-quality materials to help restore your smile. If you have one or more teeth missing from your smile, schedule a consultation with a member of our team to learn about your treatment options with dental bridges.
How Do Dental Bridges Work?
After your teeth are filed down to prepare them, our staff will take digital x-rays and impressions of your teeth so your bridge can be created. If needed, a temporary bridge may be placed while your custom one is crafted. As soon as your dental bridge is ready, the needed areas of your mouth may be numbed with local anesthesia. Stronger sedation methods can be used for anxiety or a strong gag reflex to help keep you calm during the procedure. Your bridge can be glued in its position or attached to implants based on the support you and your dentist decided on during your consultation. We will adjust the fit of your bridge so it feels right and stable.
Michael F. Alspaugh, DDS Reviews
Very Gentle, great staff,
Best dentist I've ever had in my 67 years.
I was referred to Dr. Alspaugh through a family member who provided medical equipment to the dental community. As a new resident of Oklahoma, I was seeking medical professionals who provided superior care and attention to a patient's needs. My experiences and those of my family's care far exceeded my expectations. Not only does Dr. Alspaugh provide excellent care, but he also takes the time to know each of his patients individually. He graciously shared his personal contact information and responded to questions and concerns after business hours. Thank you, Dr. Alspaugh, for your superior services and friendship.
I had a such great experience with teeth whitening here. Walked out about 6 shades lighter. The staff and Dr. Alspaugh are so friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend!
Dr. Alspaugh is one of the all-time greats and his staff is incredible.
