BRIDGES

Dental bridges are typically made from a precious metal. As the name would suggest, they bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. They are made up of two or more crowns on either side of the gap and a false tooth or teeth in between

Bridges offer a number of benefits including:

  • They can restore your smile
  • It will help you to chew and speak better
  • They can maintain the shape of your face if you have missing teeth
  • Distributes the force of your bite by replacing missing teeth
  • Prevents your remaining teeth from moving out of position

BRIDGES FAQs

The cost of a bridge can vary depending on the materials used and the amount of work required. Although it may seem costly to have one fitted, it’s a wise investment which when looked after properly, can last for many years.

In order to preserve the life of your bridge as well as prevent bad breath and gum disease, it’s important to clean your bridge every day. It’s also crucial to clean under your false tooth on a daily basis as food may get trapped underneath it. Your dentist will be able to show you how to use a bridge needle or special floss to clean areas that your toothbrush can’t reach.
