A Healthy mouth requires a full compliment of teeth to function properly.

Missing a Tooth?

A missing tooth, whether it is an anterior one affecting your smile or a posterior one affecting your chewing, can create a variety of problems:

  • Loss of function as upper and lower teeth fail to meet.
  • Drifting of teeth causing unsightly gaps.
  • Food impaction leading to gum disease.
  • Over eruption of the opposing tooth into missing space.
  • A shift in the bite putting stress of the joint leading to T.M.J. disorder.

A bridge consists of three basic units, a false tooth, replacing the lost one and two “anchor” crowns one on either side to which it is attached.

The teeth on either side of the missing space are needed to support the bridge and are called abutment teeth. The process of fabricating and fitting a bridge generally requires two appointments.

At the first appointment

The abutment teeth are shaped and prepared to accept the bridge. An accurate impression is taken from which our laboratory technician will custom design and fabricate your bridge, Special care is taken to ensure a perfect fir and to match the natural shading of adjacent teeth. Temporary crowns are places over the abutment teeth to protect them until the permanent bridge is ready.

At the second appointment

The temporary crowns are removed and the bridge is cemented into place. Bridges function similarly to natural teeth and can help your speech and chewing function while enhancing your smile.

I had a great experience at Burnaby Mountain Dental Centre. Dr. Imran Mitha was very knowledgeable and took the time to explain everything to me in a way that I could understand. He made sure I was comfortable throughout the entire visit. The staff was also very friendly and accommodating. Overall, I would highly recommend this dental office for anyone in need of dental care.

Definitely my favourite dental office in Vancouver. I now reside in Montreal, but often wait until we’re back in Van for the holidays to go see them. My kids feel really comfortable there as well which is great!

Dr Imran Mitha created a treatment plan for me that included a crown replacement and facilitating a tooth implant. While performing the procedures Dr Mitha was kind, patient and understanding. He never pushed the surgery if I was feeling uncomfortable and he was always cognizant of my feelings. Every precaution was upheld during the time of Covid. He also helped organize a cleaning program with his dental hygienist. I wish Dr Mitha much success with his new practice in Vancouver. He will be missed at the Dental School in Cleveland.
