There are several different types of dental restoration available at Chandler Family Dental Care. Many patients missing a single tooth will opt to have its basic presence and function replaced by a dental bridge.
This solid piece of dental work is made in a state of the art dental lab from very durable materials. While it is meant to replicate the strength of natural tooth enamel, there are some abnormal situations that can chip a dental bridge.
This is more likely to occur if you tend to grind your teeth while sleeping, sometimes crunch on ice or you have a bad habit of nibbling on foreign objects.
Anytime a piece of dental work is chipped or damaged in any way you need to have it examined by Chandler Family Dental Care‘s dentist as soon as possible. Once Dr. Emanuel Amato has assessed the severity of the damage to the dental bridge he will present you with the most viable treatment plan.
This might include starting the process of replacing the compromised dental work or performing a root canal to address any trauma that may have befallen one of the abutments.
If you are in the Chandler, Arizona, are and you have a compromised dental bridge, you should not delay in calling 480-413-1100 to have it examined and addressed by Dr. Emanuel Amato and his staff.
