Dental Bridges

Dental BridgesThere are many different treatments available for badly damaged or decayed teeth, but unfortunately, sometimes a tooth is beyond repair and can leave an unsightly gap in your smile. Gaps between your teeth can seriously knock your confidence, and can even have a negative impact on the functionality of your other teeth and the overall use of your mouth since, over time, your remaining teeth can shift around, causing misalignment as well as a range of other associated dental problems.

What Is A Dental Bridge Or A Fixed Partial Denture?

A dental bridge is a device used to replace missing teeth, which fills the gap where teeth are absent. Dental bridges are comprised of two or more crowns bonded to the teeth on either side of the gap which acts as anchors for the false tooth/teeth that will fill the gap.

Once your dental bridge is in place, it should be virtually imperceptible.

What Are The Benefits Of Dental Bridges?

There are a number of benefits of having a dental bridge. They can:

  • Prevent your remaining teeth from shifting position.
  • Help you bite and/or chew properly.
  • Correct your bite.
  • Improve oral functionality and appearance.
  • Help support your lips and cheeks.
  • Give you a great smile.

Looking After Your Dental Bridge

With proper care and attention, your dental bridge could last many years. You should continue with a thorough oral hygiene routine including brushing, flossing, mouthwash, and regular check-ups.
