Dental bridges are great because they can help fill that gap caused by a missing tooth. Bridges also look very natural and blend in with your other teeth. Bridges should always be comfortable when worn. If there are times where you feel pain under your dental bridge, we recommend contacting our office immediately. At R2 Center for Dentistry we care about your oral health, and always put our patients first. When you call our East Wichita dental office, we will make sure you can be seen promptly.

What Can Cause Pain Around My Bridge and What Does It Mean?

In order to find out what is causing you to have pain, a detailed examination is required. Our team will ask you questions, and if needed take x-rays to inspect the bridge and areas around it in the mouth.

  • Your bite may be off resulting in the bridge becoming loose.
  • Decay may be present under the crown that supports the bridge.
  • You may have developed gum disease, and this has weakened your teeth.
  • You may have an infection or abscess.
  • Extreme tooth sensitivity

Decay can develop underneath your bridge over time if food gets stuck in between your teeth. If left untreated this can lead to an infection, and cause pain or other complications. Once we have determined what is causing you pain, we can develop a treatment plan to help get you back to wearing your bridge comfortably.

R2 Center for Dentistry is the leading East Wichita dentist for oral appliances and restorative dentistry. Our team is committed to providing the highest quality care using state of the art technology, in a comfortable and relaxing environment.

Pain can be felt after your bridge procedure, but this should always subside after a few days. If you notice you still have pain a week or so after the procedure this can mean you have either an infection, or a bridge that needs to be evaluated and fit again.

Practicing good oral hygiene is important, and cleaning your bridge to keep it fee of plaque can help prevent complications and pain. Our team can give you tips and tricks on how to care for your bridge at home with brushing and flossing regularly.

All-on-4 implants are a reliable and quick restoration option for patients seeking a beautiful smile. At R2 Center for Dentistry, we are the Wichita dental implant specialists, and take pride in creating smiles for our patients. All-on-4 implants provide patients with dental implants in just one appointment. Our skilled doctors can place the implants while the patient is comfortably sedated.

We encourage patients that are looking for dental implants in Wichita to contact our office, and schedule a consultation to discuss what restorative options we have available. Our staff provides a detailed examination, and we develop a customized treatment plan that works for you.

What Are All-on-4 Dental Implants?

All-on-4 implants are a fixed denture that is typically supported by 4 implants. These are strategically placed in both the top and bottom of the mouth. One benefit with All-on-4 is that implants are not required for every tooth, making the process easier. Implants are permanent and reliable, and are built to last upwards of 25 years, or a lifetime if taken care of properly. Dental implants are fused to the jawbone and this makes them extremely stable. Once implants are healed, most can withstand more pressure than our natural teeth.

How Do I Know If I Am a Good Candidate for All on 4s?

Most patients that are missing teeth are good candidates for All-on-4 dental implants. The best candidates are ones that are missing teeth along the dental ridge. As part of our evaluation process, we will examine your mouth and jaw, and determine if you have enough tissue and jaw structure to support your new implants. If needed, bone grafting can be done to give you the additional support required. All-on-4 implants give patients a quick restoration solution that restores your overall mouth function and looks natural.

What Can I Expect During the Healing Process?

The healing process is quicker with All-on-4 implants compared to other restorative options. Patients should plan for at least a few months of healing while the implant fuses to the jawbone. We recommend patients follow a liquid diet right after their surgery. As you move through the healing process, you can start to introduce soft foods back to your diet. We require all patients to return to our office for a follow up visit. This allows our doctors to make sure everything looks good, and the implants are healing properly.

What Are the Benefits of All-on-4 Dental Implants?

• Quick tooth restoration option that can be done in just one appointment
• Prevents future bone loss in your jaw
• Healing time is reduced
• All-on-4 implants can be cleaned easily just like you would with your natural teeth
• All-on-4 implants are comfortable and there is no slipping or clicking
• Implants give patients the freedom to eat normally and speak clearly just like with natural teeth
