Missing teeth can have a substantial influence on your smile's appearance and overall health. A dental bridge, as the name implies, is a form of 'bridge' that helps to fill up any gaps in your mouth created by missing teeth. A dental bridge is composed of numerous components, including an artificial tooth and dental crowns. If you need one or more missing teeth replaced, come to Bell Dental Care for the best dental care possible.
Traditional Dental Bridge
These bridges are made up of an artificial tooth that is inserted in the empty socket and is supported by dental crowns that are linked to neighboring teeth on both sides of the missing tooth.
The artificial tooth is inserted into the empty socket and is held in place by a dental crown affixed to healthy teeth on one side of the missing tooth.
Metal frames support the artificial teeth in these bridges. If the patient does not have healthy teeth on either side of the missing tooth, this type of bridge is indicated.
These bridges are made up of small titanium posts that are surgically implanted in the jawbone. Because surgery is involved, the procedure is more complicated, and you may require additional time to recover.
You will gain the following advantages by replacing lost teeth with dental bridges:
The procedure for placing the dental bridge in your mouth is relatively simple and painless. Our dentist will begin the operation after you are numb. First, they will file down the teeth on either side of the gap. These teeth will be filled until they are the size of tiny little nubs. Crowns will be placed on these teeth after they have been filed down.
The artificial tooth is then placed in the gap as the final stage in the dental bridge operation. Our dentist will build a fake tooth, commonly out of porcelain or ceramics, before the treatment. The tooth is intended to look, feel, and operate similarly to a natural tooth. Once our dentist has obtained the final prosthetic tooth, they will attach it in the gap and utilize the crowns to support and retain it in place.
