Hi, there. Yes, it is okay to have a bridge that is cemented in place rather than screwed. Many bridges are done this way, and the success rate is almost the same. The only concern with cemented bridges is making sure there is no cement leftover at the gums that could cause irritation or infection. So you want to make sure when they are cemented, the dentist or dental hygienist does a very thorough job of cleaning off the excess cement and checks it with an x-ray.

Does that answer your question?

Dr. Lara

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
