Bridges are one the most popular, traditional methods to permanently replace a missing tooth or teeth. To replace a missing tooth with a bridge, at least one tooth on either side of the missing tooth must be prepared for a crown. Afterward, a false tooth is joined to the crowns, and the entire structure is permanently cemented to the prepared teeth. Special aids are available to help keep the bridge clean.
Benefits of a Dental Bridge
In case of a missing tooth, the nearby teeth move towards the empty space causing bite problems and chewing difficulties. Getting a bridge has the following benefits:
- Help your bite conveniently
- Prevent other teeth from moving towards the empty space
- Restore chewing and speaking ability
- Restore your smile and the overall aesthetics of your face
