Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth and fill a space where one more teeth have been lost. The dental bridge is created by connecting two or more dental crowns together over your existing teeth. Unlike dentures, a bridge is bonded into place and only a dentist can remove it.
There are three main advantages of bridges: they look, feel and function like natural teeth; they don’t require removal for cleaning; and they are affordable and cost less than dental implants.
We will also show you how to effectively clean your bridge along with the rest of the mouth when you visit our practice. We also suggest avoiding hard, sticky snacks such as toffee, caramelised nuts and popcorn.
Langmore Dental Berwick emphasises that losing a tooth is a serious matter and encourage you to contact us as soon as possible if this has happened to you. When a tooth is missing the bones begin to shrink and change the shape of your face and all of this can be prevented if the tooth is replaced quickly.
