Dental bridges are permanent replacements for missing teeth that fill the gap left by missing teeth, restoring oral functionality and the appearance of your smile. Dental bridges are recommended by Discount Dental in Pasco, WA because of their dependability, cost-effectiveness, and natural appearance.
What Is a Dental Bridge?
A dental bridge is made up of a prosthetic tooth that is held in place by the abutment teeth. A crown is inserted on either side of the missing tooth to bridge the gap, and a prosthetic tooth is implanted in between. The ultimate restoration consists of three or more synthetic and natural teeth joined together. A dental bridge appears natural and can aid in the restoration of normal chewing function.
Advantages Of Dental Bridges
- A dental bridge is a highly effective tooth replacement treatment because it provides both functional and aesthetic repair. Functionally, the bridge aids in chewing and biting food and allows persons to eat and chew normally because all gaps are filled. Aesthetically, it fills all awkward gaps and restores and enhances one's confidence and smile.
- A dental bridge aids in the long-term preservation of your mouth's structure. The dental bridge serves to secure the adjacent teeth, lowering the risk of movement and, as a result, biting issues.
- A dental bridge reduces the danger of jawbone loss, allowing you to keep your face structure. When teeth are missing, the jawbone deteriorates slowly, but the dental bridge helps to prevent this.
- The dental bridge can be readily cleaned and maintained like your natural teeth by following basic oral hygiene habits.
Procedure for Getting a Dental Bridge
The procedure for receiving a dental bridge necessitates at least two visits to your dentist.
The initial visit to the dentist will involve the removal of a small layer of enamel and dentin to make room for the crown. The dentist will next take digital impressions of your teeth, which will be sent to a dental laboratory for fabrication of your bridge. Until then, we may construct a temporary bridge to protect the prepared locations.
The dentist will replace the temporary bridge with the permanent one during your second visit. Once the contour and fit of the bridge are finalized, we will use dental adhesives to secure it to the tooth and perform a bite test to guarantee a proper fit.
