Are dental bridges painful?
Posted by Dr. Abeyta on Feb 9 2016, 04:02 AM
Dental bridges are secured in place by attaching to the teeth on either side of the gap. Patients are typically not in pain after the procedure. This is because the teeth on both sides of the gap are filed down to make space for the dental bridge to fit. The amount of time needed to prepare your teeth will depend on the type of bridge you choose.
