Bridges literally bridge the gap between natural teeth by replacing missing teeth with artificial teeth. Missing teeth can affect how you chew or speak, as well as cause undue stress on surrounding teeth or change the shape of your face over time.
Bridges are either affixed to strong teeth on either side of the gap or implanted by attaching the bridge directly to the jaw under the gum tissue. Either way, this dental treatment not only fills those missing spaces in your smile with natural looking artificial teeth, they restore your mouth to full function, ensuring that your oral and overall health are maintained.
My wife said to me tonight that she sure feels like she would love to have her teeth cleaned soon, and it makes me realize that a lot of you are probably feeling the same way! We are certainly hoping that it will not be long until we are able to open our office and provide the thorough services that you’re accustomed to.
In the meantime, my staff and I have been keeping informed with the latest information on ways to treat you with; the most up to date, state of the art procedures to make you all feel safe and protected. I have been participating in numerous webinars from leading disease prevention experts and I am investing in equipment that will ensure your safety. My staff and I are staying connected via Zoom meetings to share information and training.
I miss you all and I miss working. I look forward to serving you all again soon and having life, “back to normal”. I wish you all good health!
Have a great day,
Dr. Hodge & Staff
