When to Get A
Just like we use bridges to fill in a gap in a road, Dental Bridges are used to fill a gap that is created by a missing tooth.
It is never good to have a missing tooth which is why dental bridges are a permanent type of dental restoration. Call us today to see how we can help!
What is a Dental Bridge?
Dental bridges are formed by a simple process. A crown, called an abutment, is put on each of the surrounding teeth. They act as anchors to hold the false tooth, called a pontic, in place.
The bridge is designed to function like one of your natural teeth which means you’ll be able to eat and chew like normal. Some of the benefits of getting a dental bridge are improved ability to speak, maintain face shape, prevent bit misalignment, and smile restoration. They will last a lifetime as long as you take great care of them.
How to Care for A
- Maintain excellent oral hygiene
- Floss regularly
- Rush your teeth twice a day
- Regularly visit the dentist to have your teeth cleaned (around every 6 months)
If you are missing a tooth, call today to find out if a dental bridge is right for you.
