What is a Dental Bridge?
A porcelain bridge is a type of permanent dental restoration. It is made of metal and covered with porcelain. Metal is only the foundation, on which the bridge is based. The porcelain fully covers the metal and perfectly mimics the patient's own teeth. Dental bridge can replace from one to several teeth in the arch. Dental bridges are permanently cemented in the mouth, and are much more convenient solution than removable dentures, and a lot cheaper than implants. They reproduce the aesthetic and functionality during chewing.
Why should I gaps of the missing teeth?
The first reason is your appearance. The second reason is the possible overloading of the remaining teeth. The gap after a tooth may also negatively affect your bite. For example, the teeth adjacent to the gap tend to bent to the center of the gap and may change the way the upper and lower teeth touch each other. This may cause retention of food in the tooth gap, resulting in tooth decay and gum disease.
How can I fill gaps after teeth loss?
It depends on the amount and location of missing teeth in the mouth. The condition of the remaining teeth is also an important factor. There are three main ways to close the gaps: dentures, bridges, and implants. A bridge is typically used when teeth losses are small or when the missing teeth are only on one side of the mouth.
Can a dental bridge be always used to close teeth losses?
Yes, if the adjacent teeth are strong enough and the distance between the pillar teeth is not too large. Your dentist will help you decide what is the best way to fill the gap in your case.
