Dental Bridges
in Jefferson City, MO

When patients have an incomplete smile due to severely damaged or missing teeth, the quality of speaking, chewing, or smiling is likely different than before. However, patients can rebuild their smiles and oral function with our custom dental bridges! Dental bridges fill the space where one or several teeth are missing.

What does the dental bridge procedure involve?

A dental bridge is a common restorative dentistry treatment used to fill and replace the space where one or more teeth are missing. There are several types of dental bridges available. In most cases, teeth are prepared, impressions are made, and a temporary bridge is created to protect exposed teeth and gums. Shortly after, a permanent bridge is placed. The process for each dental bridge is similar, besides the implant-supported bridge process, which involves dental implants placed into the jaw to better support the bridge.

What are the benefits of dental bridges?

A missing tooth not only interferes with the appearance of your smile, but it also interferes with your function. When you lose a tooth, the nearby teeth are at risk of shifting. Shifting can affect your bite and place stress on parts of the mouth. When you replace missing teeth with a dental bridge, you’re restoring the ability to chew and speak correctly, maintaining the shape of your face, and preventing damage to other teeth while keeping a natural-looking smile!

"This was the best experience with a dentist I've ever had. I had an implant done and was expecting a lot of pain. I had no pain at all. It was so refreshing to have a dentist who cares about his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Orme and his staff at Southwest Dental Care."

- Sheryl B.

"I'm the kind of person who likes a real explanation of what's happening, even if I don't really understand half of it. Dr. Orme went the extra mile to explain everything in a casual and personable way without "dumbing it down". The office space is modern and fresh, and the staff is welcoming and characterful."

- John D.

"I worked with Dr. Orme in the Dominican Republic recently on a humanitarian trip. I watched him work hard every day at making the people feel good, creating an experience, as well as teaching those around him. He makes patients and co-workers feel good. He's positive, very upbeat, and I would recommend him strongly!!"

- Spencer C.

"He is the best dentist I have ever been to. He listens and only does what you want done without pressure. Very informative without the lecture. Dr. Orme and his staff are very friendly."
