Patients: Appointment Preparation

Bennardi Barberio General Dentistry return
The CDC has not changed the protocols for healthcare facilities, thus you will see we are still implementing the same protocols that we have instituted from the beginning of the pandemic which includes that you still need to wear a mask in our facility until we treat you. Thank you for your cooperation and we pray for the health and safety of your families.
Dr. Bennardi and Dr. Barberio have been tirelessly working to find the proper PPE to not only keep you safe, but their entire team safe. We purchased North 7700 respirators and paid a company from Denver, CO to fly in to fit test us and train us on proper use and disinfection techniques thus making us OSHA certified. Each of our treatment rooms have an air filtration device running with a HEPA filter and UV light that treats the air. Along with our usual sterilization and disinfection procedures, we also will be fogging an all-natural disinfectant at the end of the day and will be disinfecting public places throughout the day. We also will be changing head covering, surgical gowns, gloves, and face shields after every patient. Please click on the Patients:Appointment Preparation link on our homepage and find out what your responsibilities are to keep you, our other patients, and our staff safe.

Thank you for your patience and we cannot wait to get you back on track to excellent oral health.

Bridges


Diagram of a dental bridge from dentist office in Muncy, PA.A dental bridge is a fixed (non-removable) appliance and is one of the traditional dental methods for replacing missing teeth.

The type of bridge used most often is called a fixed bridge, and consists of two crowns that go over two anchoring teeth (abutment teeth) and are attached on either side of the artificial teeth (pontics), filling the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

Dental bridges are highly durable and will last many years with proper home care; however, they may need to be replaced or re-cemented due to normal wear.

Reasons for a Fixed Bridge

•  Fill the space left by missing teeth
•  Maintain facial shape
•  Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position
•  Restore chewing and speaking ability
•  Restore your smile
•  Upgrade from a removable partial denture to a permanent dental appliance

What Does a Fixed Bridge Involve?

Getting a bridge usually requires two or more visits. While the teeth are numb, the two anchoring teeth are prepared by removing a portion of enamel to allow for a crown. Next, a highly accurate impression (mold) is made which will be sent to a dental laboratory where the bridge will be fabricated. In addition, a temporary bridge will be made and worn for about two weeks until your next appointment.

At the second visit, your bridge will be carefully checked, adjusted, and cemented to achieve a proper fit and comfortable bite.

You will receive care instructions at the conclusion of your treatment. Proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new bridge.
