If you are missing one or more teeth, it’s time to consider replacing them. Fortunately, our doctor, Dr. Gary H Morikawa, offers dental bridges in Honolulu, Hawaii, which are beneficial restorations that can fill the gap in your mouth and improve your smile and oral health. To tell you a little more about this treatment, our dental team is happy to explain the benefits and treatment details.

Benefits
Dental bridges can do many things, like:

-Replace your missing teeth and restore your smile
-Give you the ability to properly speak and chew
-Distribute the force you need in your bite
-Maintain the shape of your face
-Keep the surrounding teeth in their proper positions

Treatment
Your treatment will start with your dentist numbing your mouth to ensure your comfort during your appointment. Then, he will trim the outer layer of the anchoring teeth so the dental crowns that hold the bridge in place can fit. Next, he will take measurements of the smile and will send them to a dental lab. There, technicians will custom make your new bridge. While you wait, you will be given two temporary crowns so you can still use the anchoring teeth. You will come back to our office when the bridge is ready to have it securely placed in your mouth.
