NEW SAFETY MEASURES



•  Our waiting room is closed to help ensure patients maintain a safe social distance. Please call or text Marlee at 360-734-2822 when you arrive. We will take patients directly back to treatment rooms to ensure safe physical distancing.
•  As always, treatment rooms and equipment are disinfected before and after every patient. Instruments are cleaned, then sterilized with steam.
•  We are conducting paperless pre-visit screenings for all patients with upcoming appointments.
•  Our staff are up-to-speed on COVID-19 symptoms and utilize recommended Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
•  We will meet you outside where your temperature will be taken prior to being brought into the building. If you have a fever, cough, shortness of breath or other COVID-19 symptom your appointment will be rescheduled.
•  Only patients, or patients plus one critical caregiver, are allowed into an appointment.
•  Please wear a mask to your appointment, and leave it on until you are in the treatment room. If you don't have a mask, we will provide one.
•  We have implemented digital tools for check-in as well as contactless payment methods to reduce germ spread via clipboards, pens, and money.
•  We've added time between appointments to allow for sanitizing and to keep patients apart from one another to avoid high volume or density.
•  Any patients or staff who were diagnosed with COVID-19 must have an all-clear notification from their physician before entering our facility.
•  We ask that all patients use the hand sanitizer provided at the front door upon entering. It will also be available in other areas of the office.


As always, our main concern is the safety and well-being of our patients and staff. If you have any questions or concerns, contact us at any time.
Dental Bridges
Dental bridges replace the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap and a false tooth/teeth in between. The two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth and the false teeth are called pontics. Bridges can be made from gold or porcelain fused to a metal substructure. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.The benefits of a bridge are:

•  Restore your smile
•  Restore your ability to properly chew and speak
•  Maintain the shape of your face
•  Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
•  Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position

How is a bridge attached?

A fixed bridge is commonly cemented to the natural teeth next to the space left by the missing teeth. A false tooth (called a pontic) replaces the lost tooth or teeth. A pontic is attached to a crown (a restoration that covers a tooth). Crowns, which are cemented on natural teeth, provide support for the bridge.

Dental Implant Bridges

Dental implants attach artificial teeth directly into the jaw. For patients who are missing more than one tooth, a dental implant bridge can be an excellent treatment option in lieu of a partial denture or fixed bridge.

Because surgery is required, candidates for dental implants should have good health and adequate jawbone to support an implant. For some patients, implants can help preserve the jawbone where teeth have been lost.
