When one or several of your teeth are missing, it is more than just a cosmetic problem — missing teeth can cause other teeth to move out of position. This can result in unnecessary tension in your bite, increased pain during chewing, or even difficulty speaking. A dental bridge restores the appearance and health of your mouth by covering spaces with a false tooth supported by either crowns, dental implants, or a combination of both. At SEDA Dental in Boynton Beach, FL, our dental team offers bridges custom made with top-quality materials that will help to restore your beautiful smile. If you have one or more teeth missing from your smile, please schedule a consultative appointment to get more information about your restoration options with a dental bridge.

"Dr. Rubenstein worked his magic with me...a very anxious and full of fear patient. His dental surgical technique was gentle and literally, pain free. The office staff was so kind and understanding. After my surgery, I did not have any pain...didn’t even have to take Tylenol. Best experience at the Dentist for me, ever!"- D.S. / Google / Jun 19, 2019
"It was my first visit to Seda and I can't begin to tell you how Dr. Rubinstein took away all of my fear & anxiety about going to a dentist. I was actually in panic mode when I went in for my tooth extraction. Dr. Rubinstein & his dental assistants made me feel extremely comfortable. After novocaine, within 6 mins the tooth was out & I was asking "when he will be done" because I felt NOTHING ! I heard nothing crunching in my head like prior extractions.. I could not believe he said you are all done including the stitch !I drove up to Boyton from Hallandale because I had heard so much about that office. They are now my official dental office even though they have an office closer to me. My cleaning is in 2 weeks & we are working on a program for the 3 implants I will need over the next year or so..Thank you Dr Rubinstein ! And I would be remiss if I did not mention the staff from the office workers to the dental assistants, all had extremely happy faces & were a pleasure to deal with.."- J.W. / Google / Jun 13, 2019

People with missing teeth do not merely have an aesthetic issue — gaps between the teeth can have a powerful impact on your oral health. The fact is: your mouth is carefully balanced and missing teeth can affect its function. With time, a missing tooth can lead to teeth shifting, creating bite problems (overbite, underbite, crossbite) and atrophy of the gums and jawbone. A dental bridge requires the surrounding teeth to be strong enough to support the restoration, including sufficient jawbone density and gums. We will assess your gums and jaw during your exam and consultation to help you choose the best bridge type (traditional, cantilever, Maryland bonded, or resin bonded) and material (porcelain, ceramic, metal, and porcelain fused to metal).
What To Expect
After your teeth are filed down to prepare them, we will take digital x-rays and impressions of your teeth so your custom bridge can be created. If needed, a temporary bridge or restoration can be placed while your custom one is being made. Once your dental bridge is ready, the needed areas of your mouth will be given local anesthesia. Other anesthesia or sedation options may be used if you have fears, anxieties, or a strong gag reflex so you will be comfortable during the procedure. The custom bridge will either be cemented in place or attached to dental implants, depending on the support decided on during your consultation. Our team will carefully adjust the fit of the bridge so it feels right in your mouth and remains in place.
After your bridge is in place, you should notice an improvement in your teeth's function and appearance. You may need a second visit at SEDA Dental to alter the fit of your bridge if it feels loose in the first few weeks after placement. A member of our team will show you how to maintain your dental bridge, including the best way to clean it and what foods to avoid. It is crucial to frequently clean your bridge and mouth since cavities can still develop underneath the restoration. With proper care, your dental bridge can last for many years. You need to schedule appointments at SEDA Dental for your annual dental exams and cleaning twice a year. In your examination, we will assess the health and fit of your dental bridge to determine if it needs to be repaired or replaced.
Bridges and other dental restorations are generally covered, in part, by dental insurance companies. Our office will talk to your dental insurance company to figure out your out-of-pocket expenses. SEDA Dental accepts many methods of payment, including medical financing, that can be reviewed in your consultation. We will help you select the best bridge material and type to fit both your needs and budget.
