Traditional Dental Bridge

About Dental Bridges

There are several types of dental bridges, and all are designed to replace one or more missing teeth, filling in gaps with natural-looking prosthetics. A quality bridge can restore full dental function and also help you feel more confident about your appearance.

A well-made dental bridge provides stability, making it easier to chew food and speak with confidence without concern that your prosthetic will slip out of place. A custom bridge can also provide cosmetic benefits by filling out contours to prevent a sunken appearance around the lips and chin.

Traditional fixed dental bridges are attached to dental crowns placed over healthy, adjacent teeth. Dr. Dovgan’s top quality bridge appliances are generally made of porcelain or porcelain-fused-to-metal. Our office uses CEREC technology, allowing us to offer teeth-in-a-day for implants patients. This computerized system allows Dr. Dovgan to design and create a custom bridge right in the office.

With decades of experience in prosthodontics, Dr. Dovgan can design a bridge with a custom, snug fit. It will be necessary to have a bridge appliance periodically adjusted, because tooth loss causes bone disintegration in the jaw. You can prevent bone resorption with the placement of dental implants which provide regenerative signals to your jaw bone, preventing any further tissue loss.

Implant-Supported Bridges

While a dental bridge is sometimes called a partial denture, a full-arch implant bridge can replace an entire row of missing teeth. An implant-supported bridge provides ideal stability and requires no fit adjustments. The bridge is entirely supported by dental implants, which are titanium posts surgically placed in the jaw bone.

A quality bridge can restore full dental function and also help you feel more confident about your appearance.

Implants are designed to provide a sturdy anchor for prosthetic teeth, and they work extremely well. Many patients who choose an implant-supported bridge report that their prosthetic feels very similar to having their own natural teeth.

After you receive your implants, you will use a temporary bridge until your jaw has fully healed, a process that typically takes anywhere from four to six months. When you are fully healed, you can return to receive your permanent dental bridge. Our implant bridges are available in porcelain or zirconia, a premium material that provides optimal durability and aesthetics.

As a new patient, I recently visited this dental office and left very pleased after my first visit. Both the dentist and his staff were very warm and welcoming. I hadn't been to a dentist in a few years and this alone was adding to my uneasiness about setting up an appointment for an exam, and then dealing with which dentist to choose on top of it all? (Like many things, putting off a visit to the dentist is never a wise move.) After sorting through many reviews I then settled on Dr. Dovgan's office and was glad I did. Both Dr. Dovgan and his staff had me feeling very at ease in no time. I found this dental location to be equipped with all the latest modern technology, very stylish & clean and not rushed for time...nowadays, a pleasant surprise. (...Also, special praise here to dental hygienist "Sonata" for her gentle approach and also for really taking the time to conduct a thorough exam and cleaning of my teeth & gums. Thanks, Girl!!) Additionally, also nice was the ample, easy access parking and the comparability in pricing to the many other dentists out there. :)Upon leaving I felt I had made the right choice for myself in trusting Dr. Dovgan and his team of professionals with my dental concerns and I learned that even though my end results were not perfect ( -due to my own actions- ), they were better than anticipated and attainable. If you've (too) been playing dental roulette, procrastinating out of fear of the unknown ( -"unknown as in: "what's really going on inside my mouth??" -or- "which unknown dental office should I choose from??"- ) then this dentist and his team may be the place for you to try, as well. I wouldn't hesitate at all in recommending Dr. Dovgan's dental services. Thank you for my positive visit to the dentist!! :)Remove review

I’ve been coming to this office for the last 18 YEARS (since I was 7 years old) and I love Dr. Dovgan! I never understood how anyone could hate going to the dentist before because I loved going to mine. He’s gentle, charismatic, and extremely knowledgeable in many different aspects of dentistry. The family feeling is great with the staff and they have always been so accommodating to my scheduling needs. I loved his practice so much growing up that I decided to join the dental field myself. I’d highly recommend anyone to come to his office.

I have always hated going to the dentist, but I've finally found a place that I like going to! The staff is extremely friendly and Dr. Dovgan is great at what he does. I always have a great experience with my cleanings and today I had a filling done by Dr Dovgan and it was fast and pain free! I would definitely recommend him. Thank you for making me feel at ease

Dr. Dovgan and every member of his staff that I have met represent the perfect blend of a highly professional, efficient and welcoming facility. They are up to date on the latest procedures, they are willing to take the time to explain what is going to be done and they stand behind the work they do always assuring my complete satisfaction. I've had a range of work done from simple cleaning as well as complex procedures and I have been totally satisfied with the care, the cost and the results. I am happy to do this review because I've had less than positive experiences elsewhere and I hope this review can guide others to a positive experience with Dr. Dovgan and his staff.
