Who Offers Services for Patients Seeking Dental Bridges in Calgary, Alberta Area?

Dr. Palka Sawhney Sharma specializes in placing dental bridges for patients living in or near Calgary, Alberta. She offers gentle, patient-oriented care and can help you understand the benefits of the different approaches available. If a dental bridge is right for you, she’ll talk you through the procedure, making sure you’re comfortable and confident in your service every step of the way.

Do I really need a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is an affordable, effective restoration for patients missing teeth. If you are missing teeth or need to have them removed, it is essential to consider restoration options before too long. Your teeth work together, supporting your bite. If teeth are missing, the others can start to drift or “wander,” potentially threatening your remaining teeth, as well as their underlying structures.

Does a dental bridge hurt?

The installation of a dental bridge is considered a low-impact service. Patients should experience little to no discomfort, and once placed, it goes unnoticed by many patients.

How are dental bridges placed?

Dental bridges are different from implants or dentures in that they are anchored in place by your surrounding teeth. For that, Dr. Palka prepares the teeth on either side of a missing tooth to place an anchoring cap over them. And this is what supports your restoration and prevents your remaining natural teeth from shifting over time.

The placement of a dental bridge takes place over multiple visits. At your first, Dr. Palka will use advanced 3D imaging to study your bite and learn precisely what needs restoring. She will then send the images taken to a lab that will customize your bridge to match your natural teeth and restore your bite aesthetically and functionally.

To begin placement, Dr. Palka will numb your mouth and polish the surrounding anchoring teeth so your bridge fits over them without impacting the shape of your bite. You’ll go home with a temporary restoration until the lab completes the manufacture of your bridge. Once it’s ready, you’ll return for placement. At this visit, your bridge will be adjusted, if necessary, to fit perfectly, then secured in place using a special dental bond.
