Dental Bridges Q & A
Why Do I Need a Dental Bridge?
When you are missing one or more teeth, a dental bridge can help “bridge the gap” between your existing teeth. This will help improve functionality, boost your oral health, and prevent your other teeth from suffering extended damage in the future.
How Are Dental Bridges Different from Partial Dentures?
Dental bridges are the permanent alternative to partial dentures. Partial dentures can be removed and must be maintained appropriately. With dental bridges, however, these are structures that remain in your mouth. Your expert dentists at Georgetown Dental Spa can help you learn more about the benefits of either solution for your teeth.
Are There Different Kinds of Bridges?
There are three main kinds of bridges: traditional, cantilever and Maryland bonded. Traditional bridges use crowns or implants on either side of the missing tooth to anchor the bridge and is the most common kind. Cantilever bridges are used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth, but these types of bridges are rare in today’s world. Maryland bonded bridges are bonded to each tooth on either side of the gap.
Depending on your current oral health situation, your dentist at Georgetown Dental Spa will suggest the type of bridge that they think would best benefit you.
What Are the Benefits to Dental Bridges?
When you are missing a tooth, chewing, talking and other basic functions can become difficult or awkward. There are a number of solutions to replacing a missing tooth, but dental bridges can be especially advantageous. Much like dental implants, dental bridges are a more permanent replacement, so that you can go about your days without the inconvenience of a missing tooth.
Aside from improved health and convenience, dental bridges are a brilliant way to conceal a missing tooth, which can boost your confidence as your beautiful smile is restored. Your dentist at Georgetown Dental Spa can help you achieve the look and overall health you are looking for.
