Dental Bridges An Overview
Dr. Cavallo offers experienced, advanced care for the replacement of missing teeth. He works with patients on an individual basis to create a personalized treatment plan that meets their needs and aesthetic goals. When one tooth or several consecutive teeth are lost, a dental bridge can be placed to “bridge the gap” and restore function to your smile. Dr. Cavallo has advanced training in implant dentistry. We offer implant-supported bridges, and single tooth implants for the most natural looking result. These restorations fit and feel just like your natural teeth.
A dental bridge is a series of artificial teeth. The bridgework is supported by an anchor on either side of the gap to hold the false tooth in place.
A bridge can be supported in three ways: by natural teeth, dental implants, or a combination of the two. When the natural teeth are used to support the bridgework, a dental crown is typically placed to provide additional support and stability.

Dr. Cavallo’s been my dentist since I was little. Simply put I trusted him to do quality work, keeping in mind both comfort and aesthetics. I could not be happier with the results. Given a picture of me with the original tooth and one with the implant, I’m not sure…Tom
Dental Bridges What to Expect
A dental bridge is a viable treatment option for anyone with one or more missing teeth. They may be either fixed or removable and our dentist can help you choose which type is right for you.
We follow a simple process for treatment with dental bridges. This process begins with a comprehensive evaluation to examine the health of the teeth, gums, jaw joints and other support structures. You may have an existing dental bridge or have teeth that need to be extracted. Regardless of your condition, the dentist will create a personalized treatment plan that fits your needs, goals and budget.
The dental bridge will be fabricated in a dental laboratory. You may have a temporary bridge to wear in the intermediate time period. In approximately 2 to 3 weeks from your initial visit, you will return for the delivery of the final restoration.
