When teeth are missing, a series of changes that can impact your overall dental health and jaw function may be initiated. The adjacent teeth may start to drift or tilt into space, and teeth in the opposing arch may begin to shift toward the area of the missing tooth. It is therefore essential to replace the single tooth or multiple teeth that have been lost. One of the best options to prevent the consequences of shifting teeth and to restore full function to a small edentulous section in the mouth is a dental bridge.
A dental bridge in Guelph replaces the missing teeth with artificial teeth called “pontics” and is supported on the ends by prepared natural teeth. Once fabricated and fitted, a dental bridge will be permanently “fixed” or cemented into place. Like crowns, bridges can be made of either porcelain baked onto a metal substrate or many new ceramic materials developed.
We are excited to announce that Chancellors Way Dental will be relocating as of September 6th, 2021 (after Labour Day long weekend). We will be merging with our nearby practice of Campus Dentist, located at the University of Guelph in the Student Center on the first level.
You, our valued patients, can be assured that we will continue to practice the same high standard of dentistry with the continuity and expertise of our caring, well-trained, and compassionate staff as you have become accustomed. Our office will continue to provide the best care possible and accept the same insurance plans. We realize that change can be difficult but we hope to make the transition as smooth as possible for you. Our staff will be there to help and we have included all the details regarding our new location, including address, phone number and office hours. It has been a pleasure working with you and we look forward to seeing you at our new location.
Stay healthy, be safe, and don’t forget to brush and floss! We are always accepting new patients and we are so excited that you chose us!
