Each of your teeth is hard enough to bite, chew and grind the foods you eat. There are some activities that can chip, fracture or crack a tooth. In some extreme cases, something like a hard blow to the face might damage a tooth so badly that your dentist, Dr. Michael McBride, cannot save it through conventional dental treatment. In a case like this, he might recommend completely extracting the tooth to prevent further complications.
Dr. Michael McBride will form the abutments by removing the tooth enamel from the two closest teeth. Then, he will create a detailed impression of the abutments and any other corresponding teeth in your bite pattern This will be sent to our dental lab where your new bridge will be made.
Then, he will cement hard, plastic, temporary crowns over each abutment to protect it while the lab technician works to produce your new bridge.
Once the lab tech has completed your bridge, Dr. Michael McBride will call you back in for a second appointment. The temporary crowns will be removed and he will cement your new bridge into place.
If you have a badly damaged tooth, you should not delay in calling 760-471-1003 to seek immediate treatment at McBride Dental.
