People who have lost teeth or have spaces in their mouth that are causing their teeth to become loose can benefit greatly from dental bridges.
If you have missing teeth, a dental bridge can replace and restore them and give your smile a more natural appearance.
Dental bridges are anchored by the surrounding teeth, as opposed to the jaw bone like other tooth replacement solutions like dental implants. These teeth are the abutment teeth as well. The new tooth will be positioned by your dentist so that it fits snugly between two of your natural teeth.
Dental bridges replace missing teeth and restore their appearance, size, and shape. Expert dentists know how to leave enough room between the bridge and the patient’s natural teeth and how to give the bridge some give.
Dental bridges are a great option because they don’t require a lot of downtime. Your dentist will permanently attach the bridge in no time, although they may require longer time in the chair than crowns
Studies have shown that dental bridges are just as long-lasting as crowns. While they won’t have the same longevity as a natural tooth, your implants can last a lifetime with proper care. Dental bridges have a lifespan of ten years or more.
