Are you missing one or multiple teeth? Dental bridges are a great restorative option that can be removed or secured with dental implants. This restoration can be anchored by natural teeth or dental implants for a more stable result. It is important to replace missing teeth as teeth can shift and overcrowd to fill in tooth gaps. Overcrowded teeth are difficult to clean, and plaque and bacteria can easily build up in hard to clean areas between teeth.
Benefits of Dental Bridges
There are multiple benefits that dental bridges offer patients. Dental bridges:
- Look and feel natural
- Prevent bone loss
- Maintain facial structure
- Evenly distribute the mouth’s bite
- Provide easier biting and chewing
Dental Bridge FAQs
How do you care for a dental bridge?
A removable dental bridge should be removed and cleaned twice a day. Implant secured dental bridges can be maintained like regular natural teeth.
How long is the dental bridge procedure?
The dental bridge procedure usually takes an hour to an hour and a half over two office visits. Implants are prepared for crowns in the first visit and the dental bridge is added during the second procedure.
Is the dental bridge procedure painful?
Receiving a dental bridge is not painful because teeth are numbed during the procedure.
