Details about Bridges
Dental bridges are false teeth, which are attached onto neighbouring teeth in order to replace one or more missing teeth. The dental term for a false tooth is a pontic and is fused in between two crowns that serve as anchors by attaching to the teeth on each side of the false tooth.
There are three main types of dental bridge as follows:
If you are missing any teeth and are committed to maintaining good oral health, you may be suited for a dental bridge. A bridge can be the most natural looking and feeling choice to fill the space in your mouth left by a missing tooth or teeth. If left unfilled, this space can cause the surrounding teeth to drift out of position and can cause teeth and gums to become more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease that can cause more teeth to fall out.
Benefits of a Dental Bridge
Fixed bridges not only correct an altered bite, improve your speech and chewing ability, but they also enhance your appearance by preventing the collapse of your facial features that can cause premature wrinkles and age lines not to mention an amazing confidence boost!
