"Every Time I Go, I'm Treated Like Family" 5-Star Reviews From Our Patients
Dr. Hecht’s office offers exceptional care and personalized service. Jackie and the other staff members immediately put you at ease, and you know your family members will be treated as members of their own families. The phones are always answered in a pleasant and professional tone, and the office is impeccably clean. I would easily recommend this office to friends who need dental care. It was worth the trip to the South Shore! :)View on Google
Over the years I’ve had minor dental work such as a couple inlay fillings last week as well as major work like a full upper cosmetic rehabilitation. Every time I go I’m greeted and treated like family. My teeth look better than when I was 18 and I can’t recommend this office enough. If you’ve been putting off getting dental work done, replacing missing teeth.... THIS IS THE PLACE TO GO!!!!View on Google
The Traditional Dental Bridge Timeline
Caring for Your Dental Bridge
Practice Good Oral Hygiene
Regular brushing and flossing are key to preventing your bridge from failing. Without proper care, the abutment teeth underneath your dental crowns can decay. And although dental implants cannot decay, they can fail due to gum disease. Thoroughly brush twice a day and use a floss threader to maintain your bridge and oral health.
Schedule Regular Checkups
It is important for everyone to receive regular dental care, but especially so for patients with dental restorations. Schedule regular appointments at our Staten Island office so your dentist can provide a thorough cleaning and check the stability of your bridgework.
Managing the Cost
Of Your Dental Bridge
The cost of a dental bridge can vary depending on the number of pontics in the restoration, the material used to craft them, and options such as dental implants. Fortunately, most dental insurance providers will cover at least part of the cost of a traditional bridge. Basic insurance does not contribute to the cost of dental implants.
To help our patients manage out-of-pocket costs, we work with several third-party healthcare lenders that can break the cost of treatment into manageable monthly payments. We also offer personalized payment plans and in-house financing based on prior credit approval.
