Dental Bridges

What is a Bridge ?

A Bridge is a solution for a missing tooth or teeth. Dental bridges bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. The crown replacing the missing tooth is joined to crowns made to fit over the adjacent teeth. In this way, the bridge, made up of three crowns is supported by the teeth either side of the gap. Sometimes more than one missing tooth can be replaced in this way.

What are the benefits of Dental Bridges?

  • Restore your smile
  • Restore the ability to properly chew and speak
  • Maintain the shape of your face
  • Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position

 

Will it be difficult to eat with a Dental Bridge?

Replacing missing teeth with a dental bridge should actually make eating easier. Until you become accustomed to the bridge, eat soft foods that have been cut into small pieces.

How do I care for a Bridge?

Brushing twice a day and flossing daily helps prevent tooth decay and gum disease that can lead to tooth loss.Keeping a regular cleaning schedule will help diagnose problems at an early stage when treatment has a better prognosis. Selecting a balanced diet for proper nutrition is also important.

I’ve been going to Smile Dental for eight years now, and I couldn’t be happier. After hearing nightmares about other dental practices from friends, it only made me more comfortable knowing that I was in the hands of a talented and trustworthy team. Your comfort is Smile Dental’s number one priority, and you see that every time you walk through the door.
