We may lose teeth due to several different reasons, including decay, injuries, trauma, accidents or falls, or dental extractions.
As many of us may be aware, missing teeth can lead to many problems. For example, we may often find it difficult to eat, speak, chew, or bite properly. Neglecting a gap in your teeth can also result in excess pressure on other teeth as they often have to work harder to make up for the missing tooth.
If you have missing teeth, our reliable dentists at All Smiles Dental Care can consider closing the unsightly gap(s) with the help of dental bridges. The dentist will carefully place a dental bridge with the help of ‘abutment teeth’ or teeth that will support the bridge and help it stay in place.
Dental bridges are prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth. Correctly applied dental bridges can add to the aesthetics of your smile and help you sport an even smile. When you have s tooth missing, you need to consult your dentist for suitable treatment options.
Dental bridges are a non-surgical intervention for missing teeth
The procedure is quite easy and may require a maximum of two to three visits
Dental bridges are usually a more affordable treatment option compared to say, dental implants.
Dental bridges are quite stable and lasting
Traditional bridges require putting crowns over perfectly healthy teeth
Bridges don’t last as long as implants
Since your adjacent teeth are prepared before crowning, you may experience tooth sensitivity after getting dental bridges. However, the sensitivity should only last a few days after your treatment.
